Once again I’m part of a Blog Tour. This one organised by The Globeflower Agency Ltd. And this blog tour is all about Anne Allen’s The Guernsey Novels. Tomorrow you can count on review of book 2 of this series, “Finding Mother“.
Before I talk about the Novels, don’t forget to check out all the blogs that are a part of this Blog Tour. And here is the list:
The Guernsey Novels
Anne Allen’s fascinating and awesome book series, The Guernsey Novels, comprises six standalone novels. All the stories in her novel series, take place predominantly on the island of Guernsey and are linked by characters popping up from one book to another.
Each book is standalone with fresh new lead characters with their own links to the German Occupation during World War 2, having an impact on the present.
The Guernsey Novels are a mix of mystery, family drama, and love story and influenced by the author’s love of the island where she spent many happy years. Guernsey itself is always a main character in the books, offering a gorgeous backdrop to all the sorrows, joys and tragedies she describes.
[Guernsey is also a place I have never been to, and that because of the book I read, I’m curious about, and I wish to visit.]
“Finding Mother“, the 2nd book in the series, is the book I had the privilege to read and review, and you will find out tomorrow what were my thoughts. Meanwhile, here is the blurb of the book.
Prepare to be swept away by a heart-warming tale of family relationships and love.
Three women. Three generations. Sacrifices for love…
Who is she really? Nicole is about to find out as she searches for her real mother; the woman who gave her away at birth. With her marriage in tatters, she sets out from England: travelling to Spain, Jersey and Guernsey before the extraordinary story of her real family is finally revealed.
Nicole becomes an unwitting catalyst for change in the family. Two women are forced to reveal long-buried secrets. One going back as far as the Second World War. Lives are transformed as choices have to be made and the past laid to rest…
This contemporary romantic drama is the second of The Guernsey Novels, a series of stand-alone books by the award-winning author Anne Allen. It is likely to appeal to lovers of the works of Joanna Trollope and Maeve Binchy.
If you found this book interesting, go add it to your Goodreads TBR, and check out the other books and go get them so you can read all of those stories.
About the Author
Anne Allen lives in Devon, by her beloved sea. She has three children and her daughter and two grandchildren live nearby. She was born in Rugby, to an English mother and Welsh father. As a result she spent many summers with her Welsh grandparents in Anglesey and learnt to love the sea.
Her restless spirit has meant a number of moves which included Spain for a couple of years. The longest stay was in Guernsey for nearly fourteen years after falling in love with the island and the people. She contrived to leave one son behind to ensure a valid reason for frequent returns.
By profession Anne was a psychotherapist but has long had creative ‘itches’, learning to mosaic, paint furniture, interior design and sculpt. At the back of her mind the itch to write was always present but seemed too time-consuming for a single mum with a need to earn a living. Now retired from the ‘day job’, there’s more time to write and Anne has now published six books in The Guernsey Novels series. She will be publishing her seventh novel later in the year.
