A book a month challenge – May

As summer approaches, I thought it would be a great time to talk about holiday reading! I’m on a mission to read a book a month this year, and the downtime I get on holidays really helps with this. In May I read Finding Mother by Anne Allen, and I think it would make a great holiday read. It combines mystery and intrigue, against the backdrop of beautiful Guernsey. If you’d like to experience Guernsey for yourself, please see below for competition details.

About the Author Anne Allen

Anne Allen, author of The Guernsey Novels

Anne Allen lives in Devon, by her beloved sea. She has three children and her daughter and two grandchildren live nearby. She was born in Rugby, to an English mother and Welsh father. As a result she spent many summers with her Welsh grandparents in Anglesey and learnt to love the sea.

Her restless spirit has meant a number of moves which included Spain for a couple of years. The longest stay was in Guernsey for nearly fourteen years after falling in love with the island and the people. She contrived to leave one son behind to ensure a valid reason for frequent returns.

By profession Anne was a psychotherapist but has long had creative ‘itches’, learning to mosaic, paint furniture, interior design and sculpt. At the back of her mind the itch to write was always present but seemed too time-consuming for a single mum with a need to earn a living. Now retired from the ‘day job’, there’s more time to write and Anne has now published six books in The Guernsey Novels series. She will be publishing her seventh novel later in the year.
