“I was delighted to find that every single one of the forty-two stories in Becoming Someone is a hit!
Anne Goodwin has such an observant eye
for human motivation and behaviour “
Stephanie Jane, Literary Flits
If he could make her stay, he wouldn't have to choose … and it would be a shame
not to make use of the cellar.
“A dark and disturbing tale of a man who appears ordinary on the surface, but is deeply damaged.
Clever and chilling; [Underneath] is a story that will stay with you long after you've finished reading.” Sanjida Kay, author of Bone by Bone
In the dying days of the old asylums, three paths intersect: a brother and sister separated for fifty years and the idealistic young social worker who tries to reunite them.
“The light wins in this novel, which manages
to be warm, uplifting and surprisingly funny
for all the sadness and injustice portrayed.”
Isabel Costello, author of Paris, Mon Amour and Scent
