About the Author

TA Williams Author Photo

I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract.

The fact that I am now writing romantic comedy is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations and, as a writer, I obviously have to go there in person and check them out first. I love my job…

My Review

I have been reading T.A. Williams’ book since I found out about his novels thanks to the blog tours, and I have always enjoyed them. This story was extra special for me.

In this story we follow geologist Anna’s journey in this Italian island. This book has a lot of things I like. The Italian setting that I have come to love, the geology element which was something I have always found interesting, and them the romance and the decisions that Anna as to make.

I absolutely like that the story isn’t just about the love and friendship, but also about Anna’s job and career. It also has a message connected to geology and the environmental impact humans are having, it was refreshing because it makes this novel a lot more than just daily life and struggles, it’s also about everyone else, the culture, the traditions, the impacts we have, and the interactions.

Overall, I was not disappointed and I had fun. It made me think, it got me going from chapter to chapter. It was a story that had the escape element thanks to the scenery and which under the current situation, was just what I needed. Can’t wait to see what T.A. Williams will do next.
