From our JUNE  REVIEWS

My runner-up choice is Seraphina's Song by Kathryn Gauci

And my selected Book of the Month is...
I love stories of the Age of Sail, and this is one of the best (outside of my own series of course! LOL) that I have read in a long while. In fact, I'd go as far as saying this is better than even Patrick O'Brian for the simple reason that Mr Allan has brilliantly incorporated female characters into his stories, whereas their presence in many of O'Brian's novels is notable by their absence.  Bravo Mr Allan.

Thank you for leaving a comment - it should appear immediately, but Blogger sometimes chucks its teddies out of the cot and has a tantrum (especially if you are a Wordpress person) If you are having problems, contact me on author AT helenhollick DOT net and I will post it for you.
However, SPAMMERS will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam this blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that you were warned...
