New on the Mari Howard Author Blog

Bodies of Light, and Reflections of Ancestors is now up on the Mari Howard Author blog https://marihowardauthor.wordpress.com/ This piece links up my family with the mid-Victorian era which Sarah Moss has skilfully evoked in her novel Bodies of Light, which I recently read. I'm captivated enough by Ally, who emerges as the main character, that I'm now into her follow-up, Signs for Lost Children - spoiler - early feminism and the Suffrage movement. A proper "review" of Bodies of Light may appear in the Book Club page later - time permitting - IN OTHER NEWS the follow-up to The Labyrinth Year is in progress and first draft has reached part 2 (!) This is a little bit different to the previous two in the Mullins FamilySaga series, meeting the family again in 2007 (and beyond), seeing life from a 'What Alice did then' viewpoint. And I am hoping to get a Newsletter out soon(ish) so please sign up using the form on the home page...
