New On The Shelf At Fiction Books This Week

The latest book to find its place on the shelf  here at Fiction Books, is another win from the lovely people at Goodreads, with the complimentary paperback copy being sent promptly by independent publisher, Legend Press, thanks so much for the excellent service to Lucy Chamberlain.
I really can’t believe that this is the fourth such review copy I have won, this from someone who never usually wins so much as the smallest raffle prize!
I entered this particular giveaway because I was so interested and intrigued by the premise and storyline of, To The Edge Of Shadows and was maybe also a little influenced by the fact that the book’s author Joanne Graham, lives not a million miles away from here, in rural Devon and it is always good to be able to support a ‘local’ writer.
Check out the book  – ‘TO THE EDGE OF SHADOWS’
Sarah Phillips longs for the simple life – a job to fill her days, a home to return to and a small amount of steps to count between the two. Seriously injured in a car crash when she was thirteen, Sarah has no memory of her childhood or the family she lost.
Ellie Wilson remembers her own past only too well, the cruelty she suffered at the hands of a mother that abused her and a father who couldn’t protect her. She finds Sarah fascinating, a mirror to the life she never had.
But as curiosity spills over into obsession, and as Sarah’s world begins to unravel, Ellie moves ever closer.
Now meet the author – JOANNE GRAHAM
Image Of Author Joanne GrahamJoanne Graham was born in Wolverhampton, UK in the 1970′s, the youngest of five children.
She has been lucky enough to live in many beautiful places such as South Wales, Cumbria, and Australia, all of which have been an inspiration in many ways, although these days she lives in rural Mid Devon with her two children and too many cats!
After studying Health and Social Welfare at university she worked in a prison and a school for teenagers displaying challenging behaviour, before turning to inclusive education in a mainstream secondary school.
She has been writing since she was given a typewriter for her eleventh birthday, with her first book, ‘Lacey’s House’ being published in 2013 by Legend Press and winning the Luke Bitmead Award.

Her first book, Lacey’s House was published in 2013 and her second book, To the Edge of Shadows was published in 2014.
I love every part of the book writing process from the excitement of the initial idea to weaving all the tiny elements of the story from the air. I draw my inspiration from the landscape around me, from quirky characters I meet and from the strange and convoluted thoughts that dance between my ears.

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'.
