Very good book, recommended to me by a friend, but need a sequel!!!
Penny C Personal review 13.07.2021
“A pungent smell of wet earth pervaded as the dampness reached deep inside to scrape at their bones.”
One opening line and I was transported there, didn’t know where or when and still don’t know…this is one of the many intriguing things about this book, it’s set over 3 time periods, but this part remains a secret which automatically gets you hoping there is a sequel.
The lives of Ginny and those around her, both family and newly found friends, grasp you and hold you tight as they intertwine and lead you to wondering what secrets will be revealed next, a fantastic, griping spiders web. The historical information, which spills from the pages, had me googling away to discover more about the truth behind the story. I couldn’t put it down and in fact read it cover to cover in less than 36 hours, so mesmerising and I felt a great connection, a relationship building with these fantastic characters; with their own, as well as their combined, stories.
Each chapter holds another piece to the complex puzzle, another lead or secret that has you wondering where it will lead Ginny, and you, next…I know it definitely has led me into a sense of suspense as I wait with anticipation for the next book to come out. Can’t wait to read it and pick back up my newly found relationship with Ginny and those in her web of intrigue.
K Lewis Adair please don’t leave us hanging for too long.

The Windmill by Lost in a Book Review.
I was kindly sent a copy of this book by the publisher, Troubadour Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This is the first Historical fiction book I’ve ever reviewed and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s like no other book I’ve ever read and I have been taken on one eye opening journey!
To say I enjoyed this book would be an understatement. I was captivated by it. There are a number of separate events (past and present) being told simultaneously but, slowly they all begin to intertwine until you’re left with two people trying to work out how all of the events actually connect to form their ancestry.
I know what you’re thinking and yes, the way I’ve explained it does sound like it’s going to be a confusing book but, I promise you it’s not! It’s beautifully written and after a few chapters you can start to see things connecting and you will be filled with such excitement you can’t help but keep turning the pages!
There is an almighty cliffhanger at the end that I can guarantee will leave readers desperate for a sequel. Well, I have it on good authority that the sequel is being written and, I for one can’t wait for it to be published.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone.

The book was a wonderful read. Shifting through time and characters the plot builds through intrigue and anticipation. Each characters life is entwined elaborately leading the reader to discover more in depth intrigue and subterfusion.
A real page turner that kept me riveted to the end. A ripping good yarn with obviously more to come from this new and upcoming author xxx Personal review. Steve 8 Jan 2021
I couldn’t put this book down. I loved the way the characters came into importance bit by bit. They all have a story to tell for themselves but they all come together to explain so much more at the end of the book. I found the historical parts of the book really interesting. I read it over a weekend which is something for me. Highly recommended. Personal review Anne, 23 Dec. 2020.
