What made Friday a great day?

Tonight an author messaged me with her review of my historical novel : The Fortune Seekers – Dan and Charlotte.

Hopping onto Amazon.com and Amazon.com.uk tonight I found hers and other reviews I hadn’t seen before.

Made my day!! I am extremely grateful for these reviews.Amazon link

Thank you kind readers. You are aware how important reviews are to authors.

One of my goals is to review every book I read, and place it on every site that may assist the author become better known.

This includes Amazon pages around the world, GoodReads, review groups on Facebook, Twitter, and my blog pages.

Wow! Well done to the author. Each time I put the book down, I couldn’t wait to get back to it. I was captivated nearly all the way through. I’m really looking forward to Part 2. Will her husband come back to spoil her happiness? I wonder! Definitely a 5/5

The Fortune Seekers – Dan and Charlotte: Book One of a Series This story explores the hardships and unyielding religious attitudes of people living in the mid-1800s. It takes the reader on a journey from the Welsh countryside to early Australia where the characters must forge a fresh start while living in rudimentary conditions. They have little on hand other than hard work, determination and the ability to survive. It deals with their mental hurdles as they endeavour to live good lives while being responsible parents. They have little to look forward to other than a rare visit to distant family. A subliminal parallel between modern life and early settlers unfolds causing the reader to consider their comparative blessing.

A review from New Zealand – after purchase from author.

Hi Glennis. I read your book and as other reviews have stated, I found the first 100 pages rather hard going. However, once Dave and Dan left home, and the story had some substance, I began to thoroughly enjoy it. It was well written. Also can I suggest some captions added to the photos would have been nice.

I DID enjoy the book and am looking forward to the next installment. Keep up the good work. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
