it was amazing

Well, Kate Belle is just going to have to write this review for me because I can’t find the words to describe the power of this story. There’s an intriguing plot, vividly drawn characters and mesmerizing prose that sweeps you along until you are almost singing the words aloud. Then there’s Kate’s clever, clever, clever narration that hooked me from the start. I read this novel in one day. (Most unlike me!)
I loved Kate’s debut (The Yearning) even though it was outside my ‘usual’ genre. For me personally, Being Jade is even better and most definitely sublime women’s fiction. I hope Kate’s talent is recognised this year and short-listed somewhere among this year’s literary awards.
