My children's novel The Angels of Abbey Creek has a couple of reviews on Amazon

When I heard my book had been reviewed, I headed straight over to Amazon. What had the reviewers written? I was eager to find out, but a little apprehensive at the same time. What if they hadn't liked my story?

I needn't have worried. Both Patrice and Charliene have been very kind. They like my novel!

Here's Charliene's review:

Leaving Us Hungry for More!
My daughter (age 6) and I enjoyed The Angels of Abbey Creek immensely! The moment it ended, she begged to begin it again. We giggled our way through many chapters. Through some, we sighed in empathy and cuddled closer. Through all, we related to the delightful characters, our new friends, each brimming with personality, and the wonderful and humorously familiar circumstances they find themselves in. Often my daughter would say, "Just like our family!" or we exchanged glances and sighs when a character did precisely what someone in our own family does, all the while delighting in the romantic unfamiliarity of Australian life! Each day as we sat down to read, this is the story my daughter chose and inevitably pleaded for "just one more chapter". This will be one we'll read over and over. I love it, love it, love it, and I can't wait for Sue Elvis to write more so we can “visit” our new friends again! 
A must-have for children ages 5 to 12. Authentically broaden your family’s cultural and religious horizons by feeling like you’ve met new friends, or relate with all the uniqueness and love that epitomizes living the Catholic family life – or both!
My daughter wanted to write a review too. Here it is:
 The book was great. And it felt like we were actually there. I laughed and smiled and said, “Oh, that’s so much like our family!” a lot. And we had fun reading it. And when we were done with it I asked for my mom to read me the book again, or at least a certain chapter.

Thank you so much Charliene for your review.

Hungry for more? I am encouraged to continue working on the sequels: The Angels of Gum Tree Road and The Angels of Convict Way.

In the meantime, I hope you'll take a look at The Angels of Abbey Creek!

    1. Chris,

      I'm glad you are enjoying my story!

      We took our Christmas tree down the day after the Baptism of Our Lord, but I know a lot of people still have theirs up. It must almost be Candlemas Day! love to you! xxx

    1. Elisa,

      It's so lovely to hear from you. I was reading your blog earlier today and thinking about you. I followed a link from Twitter. I think there must be something wrong with my feed because I haven't been getting notifications of new posts, although I follow your blog. I'll have to investigate what is going wrong! Anyway, I'm so glad you want to read a proper copy of my book. I remember how you encouraged me at the draft stage and how I sent you a PDF copy by email. I made a few changes to some of the stories, and added a couple of new ones before publishing it. I hope you enjoy the book!
