Home Schooling: The Fire Night Ball (Book) - 10/8/2012 7:23:02 PM
Here is what a writer in Wales, Lucinda Elliot, has written to me about my book: Dear Anne Just an update, I like to let people know how I'm enjoying their books as I go along. Now up to page fifty, and I love this heroine. Not only is she witty, she's unrepressed about her sexuality enough to engage in a bit of lesbianism on the side without any worries. I loved that, and those coarse witticisms. It's very funny in a sad way, too, which is just how I like a story. You handled M's confidences about being interfered with brilliantly - just how an 'Emotionally Challenged' man would react, and horribly funny. 'How distasteful, must say something' sort o f thing. That Harry is older than I thought but hasn't learnt anything about emotional maturity- and he's not going to let a woman he regards cooly as a delightful mistress who's getting too emotional teach him, either. His wife seems to be as much of a siren as my Ceridwen Kenrick, though we've only heard about her so far. Poor Marlena (love the name too, shades of Marlene Dietritch). She is being treated like s--t, aquamarine bracelets or not, and is completely alone with her pregnancy as she won't lean on people. The only person she's trying to do it with, pushes her away. Gradually, the witchcraft thing moves closer. This is an absorbing and exciting read. Jessica xx Jessica Holsgrove 5:51 AM (16 hours ago) to me Dear Anne, Really happy I made your day! Up to page 102, now, and I'm continuing to find this really absorbing with the combination of vivid characters and settings and the unusual blend of modern problems - conservation as against corporate profit and corruption, with a still brooding and active past. I think your use of synchronicities is excellent - perhaps there are readers who prefer things very obvious, but I believe in something slightly deeper; subtlety adds to the excitement. I have greatly taken to Marlena Mae; she has generosity of spirit, as shown by her thinking of her acquaintance's unemployed brother in the middle of her own traumas. As Bryce Scattergood (love the name) suffering from 'tumescence' (wonderfully Shakespearian) thinks, what is a woman who looks like a goddess doing wasting herself on Harry Drake? Drake's cardboard soul is shown by his choosing those leather bound false books. I'm glad there is to be a sequel. Jessica xx Yours sincerely Jessica Holsgrove
