Those who have read Craig Carden’s ‘Easter Beside an Estuary’ have called it a “beautiful love story” and ‘tenderly written”. Brad Peters and Karl van Aswegen meet at a top boarding school, where they fall in love. Their affair reaches its height on a citrus farm in rural Zululand, South Africa. They ride together, swim naked, fish and make love. Brad, the blond and highly artistic one and Karl, the dark-haired sport player, want their closeness to go on forever. Karl’ s turbulent and brooding older brother Stephan, the crocodiles in the river and the snakes in the steamy undergrowth, are not their only danger. One far, far greater comes out of a hot South African night…

Introducing an exciting new novel by writer, Julia North. I have known this writer for many years as we did our initial training as teachers of Speech and Drama together. Julia North is now a deputy head teacher in Britain and is the author of two novels. ‘Hear Me’ is her second. To learn more about it, click on the link. I am sure you will find it well worth the the read. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B06W9JV6GY
It is published by Hookline Books in the UK.
Her earlier novel is a work for young adults and it is called ‘Lieutenant Hotshot: The Story of an Invisible Child’. It is published by Lodestone books and is also available on Amazon. Both books are set in South Africa, a country Julia North knows well and evokes with ease in her writing.

Happy reading of the books of a dedicated and excellent author. May she write many more. Andrew Pender-Smith
