Our Song

There is a new review on Amazon UK for my book of short stories “Our Song” under my maiden name Heather Douglas.  I have copied it exactly (with minor typos) below:-

“The short stories in this collection draw the reader in very skilfully and each one has an intriguing and eagerly anticipated denoument.They are satisfyingly unpredictable and in some of the stories,are powerfully and darkly disrturbing.The layers of deception and the origins of resentment and disharmony in relationships are revealed with careful insight while the psychology of the protagonists is well described.The observation of socal interactions (both overt and hidden) rings true throughout and gives real life to the characters.This collection represents writing of a high order, embodying strong imagination and well crafted plot structures.”

How lovely is that!

    We met at my book-signing at WHSmith Books in Beverley last July and you bought a copy of my first book, Catalyst. You told me about Our Song and, as promised at the time, I bought a copy the following week. I’m so glad I did! It’s a wonderful collection of twists and turns and beautifully written. The great thing about short story collections is that you can spread the enjoyment out over a long time. I’m taking it steady, so I don’t get to the end too quickly! My favourite so far is Fields of Gold – brilliant.

  5. Thank you Michael. It is always good to get feedback – and better still if it is positive! I enjoyed your book too and I have read the second one, not yet had time for the third. I really like the characters, the relevance of the plotting to our lives today and the subtle way that you turn the expected consequence into the unexpected – all of which means a riveting read that makes you think long after you have finished the book and look forward to the next.
