Towards the end of June I was procrastinating on Facebook, when another member of a writers’ group explained why she writes fiction rather than true stories.
My own work in progress is a true story. I decided to research the possibility of fictionalising my story. My first step was to read two books by the author mentioned above.
To begin I read A painful post mortem as an e-book. I bought it from Amazon and read it on my laptop’s Kindle app. I found the style easy to read. The suspense was maintained in an interesting manner. I particularly liked the way the book ended. Some things are more important than pursuing justice at all costs.
She was hoping for a review, but it was my pleasure to write one and post it on Amazon UK.
A counselling session sets the scene and two stories are developed in parallel. The counsellor has a life that is not without its own dilemmas.
This is a very well-crafted book. The suspense is maintained until the end with all the loose ends tied up satisfactorily.
I thoroughly recommend it and wish I could have read something like this when my own children were teenagers.
I wholeheartedly recommend both these books to anyone, who has dealings with teenagers, young adults or who is finding relationships within their family difficult. There is much wisdom here.
