5 stars "Impressive debut" from Roger Wood, 29 Oct 2013

My sincere thanks to Roger Wood for a wonderful review.  Roger not only enjoyed Foxden Acres, he understood me as a writer.  He talks about the right amount of dialogue and prose, research being stitched into the narrative so it doesn't spoil the reading experience, and not seeing the final twist at the end.  All that, and he didn't give the game away.   
5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive debut, 29 Oct 2013

R. Wood - See all my reviews
This review is from: Foxden Acres (Kindle Edition)
An impressive first novel. The dialogue struck the right note and the prose slipped smoothly along. With debut period novels I often find the research remains obvious rather than being stitched in to the narrative. Madalyn Morgan avoided that trap. The research is there, so you can read with confidence, but it doesn't stick out and disrupt the reading experience. I liked the story and didn't see the final twist coming. Recommended.
