I have just finished Sea of Memories. Every now and then you come across a book that is ‘unputdownable’, totally absorbing and you become as immersed in the story and characters as if you were part of it! This book is one of them! Chosen completely at random, this will be among my Top 5 reads.
I’m so pleased! The Ile de Re is still a magical place, even if it is a bit busier these days than it would have been when Ella first visited. I hope you get there and that you will enjoy it. Remember to look out for the salted caramel ice cream 🙂
Hi just read your book beekeepers promise on kindle but wasn’t able to leave a review, I’ve been bounced around in the tangle and couldn’t get back to the books page but wanted you to get this. PS, enjoyed the book immensely
I’m sorry to hear you’ve had problems leaving a review for The Beekeeper’s Promise, but am delighted to know how much you enjoyed it. Thank you very much for taking the time to get in touch and let me know here instead.
Hi Fiona – I absolutely loved The Beekeepers Promise but Sea of Memories topped it!!!!! Best book I’ve read in a long time. What a beautiful story – literally had tears streaming reading the last few pages…..didn’t want it to end! Both such amazing stories – can’t wait for your next book!!!!!!
I’m so delighted to hear from you and to know how much you’ve loved both The Beekeeper’s Promise and Sea of Memories.
I’m hard at work on the next book right now. I can’t say much more at the moment, other than that it’s the sister book to The Beekeeper’s Promise, telling the story of what Mireille got up to in Paris in the war years and that it will be coming out next year.
Thank you for getting in touch. And happy reading!
All the best,
Thank you for getting in touch. The order in which I wrote the books is:
1. The French for Love
2. The French for Always
3. The French for Christmas
4. Sea of Memories
5. The Beekeeper’s Promise
The are all intended to be able to be read as stand-alone books, but having said that if you read them in order of publication you will see a thread of interconnected characters and overlapping lives (as in any community), and recognise some references and stories from the books that went before. The only exception to this is Sea of Memories, in which the characters and setting are entirely separate from the other 4 books.
Happy reading, ad I hope you enjoy the books.
With best wishes,
I have just finished reading Memories of the sea and I really loved it . I usualy only read true stories but I was looking for something different for a change and I was so pleasantly surprised to read your book l absolutely loved it and I have just got The French For love I hope this one is as good
