Reviews for The Long Woman

The Long Woman is a re-release, which means many of its older reviews haven’t followed it into this new incarnation. So, here’s a round-up – snippets from things reviewers have said about the book in its former incarnation on Amazon.

L Phillips said: “I thoroughly loved reading this book. The author blended the mystical elements of the story into the plot in a way that supported the story, without taking over. The melancholy mood of the book was lovely and comfortable to read.”

MS: “A delightful book and one which defies simple description: Is it a love-story; an historical novel; a fantasy; a ghost story; an ode to the English countryside; a patchwork of literary references; a challenge to staid values? Yes, it is all this and more besides but, most importantly, it is a narrative that fully and skilfully engages and transports the reader to a different time and many different places, including some that are not on this corporeal plane.”

Lorna: “Plumbing the highs and lows of human experience, ‘The Long Woman’ is full of surprise. In a lively and engaging manner it puts into question our modern presuppositions about our relationship to the natural world and life after death. I’d recommend this to everybody.”

Nimue: “Beautiful, imaginative, poignant, magical writing. A great story with memorable characters.”

Ola Yemaya: “Skilfully crafted and brimming with knowledge about the period and its esoteric renaissance, the author offers a convincingly ordinary and genuine heroine as travel companion that might prove to be inspiration to explore one’s own places of loss and denial in relation to the deep healing that can be retrieved in nature. Combining a gentle yet evocative language with deep spiritual insight, “The long woman” is an inspiring journey into the heart of “all things” and a delightful read for anybody who explores the ways we are inseparably interwoven with each other and creation in order to face and master our own life’s lessons.”

Lyn Wiltshire: “I could not put this book down and found it both entertaining and educational.”

Ian Davidson “It takes a magical look at a woman’s journey of discovery through her trying to understand her dead husband.”
