Mother's Day Magic Anthology...book by book. Book 4:December Roses by Daisy Banks



Mother's Day Magic

Mother's Day Magic is a 12 book anthology that includes all previously unpublished books.  These were written for this project. Here are 12 books all about mothers and their strength of character. I am going to introduce them all one at a time, three a week. There are not many anthologies that are available in paperback, but this one is and it looks fantastic. We thought that all mother's deserved to have the best, but even at 99c for the Ebook, it is definitely worth a read and worth a treat as an extra present for your mom available at http://amzn.to/2oOI8Nl or http://amzn.to/2ph2SJP for the paperback version.

Anyway, the next book in the box is December Roses by my fellow British Author Daisy Banks. I really felt at home in this story, as I pictured the streets, countryside, houses and furnishings from the recalled memories of a true love relationship. The smell of roses triggers these memories and Daisy allows us privy to Jean's early courting days, in particular a day trip with her young fellow with whom she was deeply in love. Unfortunately, her strict parents, in particular her mother, did not share in her enthusiasm, and her special day trip was fraught worry as she tried to work out how to keep everyone happy.  I loved the contrast of Jean's vigorous youth with the frail old lady who nods off to sleep all through the day. A beautifully written story that captivates your imagination and heart as you really want Jean to win her mum over and to keep her beau.

This was a new genre for Daisy, and I understand a huge challenge and in contrast to her normally 'heated' relationships, but believe me, she has coped with it very well. A lovely read.
