New On The Shelf At Fiction Books This Week

Fiction Books was chosen as a suitable review site for this stunning new psychological thriller, by its independent and fiercely patriotic small publisher, Honno Press.

The author of Motherlove, Thorne Moore, has been kind enough to chat with me direct and has put together a unique and interesting guest post, which I shall be sharing to coincide with the release date for Motherlove, 19th February 2015, so I do hope that you will make a date in your diary to stop by and check it out!


Three mothers – 1990

 Heather is horrified to be pregnant again.

Gillian is desperate to adopt.

Lindy is terrified her baby will be taken from her.

In the midst of all this longing and pain, a child disappears.

Two babies – Now

Vicky finds out she’s not who she thought she was.

Kelly loves her mother. Wanting to help her, she innocently reveals deeply buried secrets.

One desperate woman

Every day a woman goes to a park, still trying to understand an event 22 years earlier that tore her life apart.

But all these stories are connected. Can one of them learn the truth without tearing apart the lives of everyone else?



Image Of Author Thorne MooreThorne grew up in Luton, in a very politically aware family (i.e. left-wing) and was firmly advised to study law. This would have implied a career in law, so since she intended to be a writer, not a lawyer, she read history at Aberystwyth university instead.

Much much later, and far more impressively, with much blood, sweat and tears, she gained her law degree from the Open University, when it was far too late to be tempted to put it to any use.

Thorne worked in a busy reference library for some years, then moved to West Wales to set up a restaurant with her sister and now lives just outside a North Pembrokeshire village, where she runs a craft business and occasionally teaches family history – but mostly writes.

If I want to write, I write. So just do it. If you think that making time for writing is a problem, just wait until you finish a book, and find a great aching desert of emptiness stretching before you.

Her interest in genealogy, and her present home, a Victorian farmhouse that stands on the site of a Mediaeval manor, might explain some of the themes in her books, which are rooted in a sense of history, sometimes distant, sometimes recent. Her books are largely set in Pembrokeshire, the county from which her mother’s family comes and which is an endless resource of history,mystery and magic.

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'.
