What a lovely thing to wake up to - there's a wonderful review of Bonds of Earth over at Speak Its Name!

And if you live in the part of Alberta serviced by the Chinook Arch Regional Library, my novel can be borrowed electronically. :)

Review by a happy reader

I saw Bonds of Earth recced by dsudis and it sounded intriguing (I was desperate for a well written h/c story and just came out of a Downton Abbey S2 rewatch). I downloaded the ebook as an early birthday present to myself and I don't think that I've ever given myself a better one. I LOVED IT.

You pushed so many of my buttons that it felt like you had a manual. Michael and Seward (JOHN! The moment Michael uses "John" for the first time and the names switch in the narrative <3)! And the fantastic secondary characters: Sarah! Dr. Parrish! Millie (my favorite)!! Your characters were real people!

You had a solid plot and a great ending (I wanted to hit some reason into Margaret but I found it perfectly reasonable how you ended that storyline). It was a delight to see them all at the graduation ceremony.

So many scenes I loved. The descriptions of tending to the gardens. The exotic atmosphere in the baths. Oh, and Michael telling off Stewart and that it actually made a difference.

I could go on for pages.

So long story short: very well done! And thank you for my birthday present!
