#ShareAReviewDay – Secrets by Anita Dawes

This morning, I’m happy to be sharing this recent review of Secrets by Anita Dawes. I know you’ll enjoy this one, and will share it on your favorite social media sites! Thanks!

REVIEW:

Janet Gogerty
4.0 out of 5 stars A deep dark look into childhood.

20 August 2018
Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

I finished reading this in the middle of last night; though it is not unsusual for me to turn my Kindle on in the early hours, this is not the sort of novel you should be reading in the dark watches of the night! It is a good paranormal thriller, but more than that it will make you reconsider all our childhoods. How responsible are children for what they do and what is really going on in their minds? In some ways I felt most sorry for Jack’s parents, a poignant back story gradually revealed, an event that ruined any chance of his father continuing the life he loved or his mother coming to accept their rural life. There is a lot going on in everyone’s lives, but Jackie is a reminder that those of us who have led ordinary lives cannot know what others have had to overcome. There were only a few things that jarred – I thought it was likely the social services would have got involved, Maggie did not guess an obvious pointer as Jack’s story was revealed and some dialogue and characters’ thoughts could be confusing in the pace of the story. But overall I really enjoyed this unusual novel.

BLURB:

Secrets, a haunting family drama, is about deeply buried guilt and all the secrets and suspicions that invade and control our lives.

SOME SECRETS WILL KILL YOU…

And some are about someone who is already dead.

A mother must find the truth before these secrets destroy her family…

Author Anita Dawes

Hi, my name is Anita and although I am over 70, I am by no means a ‘silver surfer’. I have been writing fiction for a while now but never been picked up by the mainstream publishers. They all loved what I wrote, but said it was hard to slot them into a category! It came tantalisingly close with Bad Moon, but no cigar, as they say.

After going several rounds with various mainstream publishers, I realised I would have to try something else. I saved the rejection letters because most of them had very encouraging comments. I even wrote to James Herbert once and he was so very kind and supportive.

When I retired, and with the help of my sister-in-law Jaye, I decided to dust off some of my manuscripts and try to achieve the impossible.

I am a paper and pencil girl. You could chain me to a computer for years and nothing would happen! Jaye is managing to cope with it, but then she has much more patience than I do. (She is as stubborn as a mule, which helps!)

They say you are never too old to learn, but in my case never is another word for infinity!

I thank God for my family, for I have a second chance to find out if anyone out there likes the kind of books I write…

  1. Reblogged this on Times and Tides of a Beachwriter and commented:
    ‘The Write Stuff’ was one of the first blogs I started following when I joined WordPress. I enjoy reading Marcia’s books and her blogs. There is always something fun or interesting happening at her website. She also generously supports fellow writers, including sharing book reviews. Here is a review I wrote recently for Anita Dawe’s novel Secrets.

  2. I was going to add one of Jayes books to your review group, Stevie, but that would mean she would be reading my book. As she has probably read it backwards (as she edited it) I am waiting for someone else to join…

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it, Robbie. It was my pleasure to share. I believe I have one scheduled for Jaye Marie tomorrow afternoon, along with Hywela Lyn in the morning. Hope you’ll check them out when you have time. 🙂
