Alison Wells reviews Too Many Magpies

After not being to able to make a connection this morning (even though the weather was lovely - maybe it's not the weather!), I've now got 3 strokes on the 5-stroke connection gauge, and as soon as I connected up found this - a really lovely review of Too Many Magpies by writer Alison Wells. It's made my day, especially as what she says at the end is quite the best compliment one writer can pay to another:
As a reader it was the kind of book I have longed to read, as a writer, it is the kind of book I would dream of writing.
I can't tell you how very happy that makes me feel. Thank you, Alison.

Wonderful review. What all writers would love to be told!

Yes, exactly, Rachel. And it's an extremely generous thing for one writer to say to another.
