Sharing our love for authors, and the stories they are inspired to tell.

‘An Uncertain Refuge’ by Carolyn J. Rose

 Later, Kate Dalton often wondered how things might have turned out if she had been a little stronger or a lot weaker, if she had refused a mother’s plea, or if she had spoken the truth while it was still hers to tell.

But on that February morning when a scream shattered both the fretful calm of the shelter and the constricted structure of her life, Kate did exactly what she’d trained for – and exactly what she’d been warned against.

From reading these lines and even those of the cover synopsis, I am still left wondering exactly what Kate has been trained for and why?

I am also pondering on the notion that Kate felt that she needed to be either a little stronger, or much weaker, to have changed the outcome of events. That’s an interesting concept and does make perfect sense when I stop and think about it logically.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
