Book Review – Forget Me Not: An anthology of short stories by Kitty Campanile

October 13, 2017

Writing short stories is a different art to the novel and difficult to do, but Kitty Campanile is an expert.  There are some real gems here.  Because they are so short these are ideal if you are looking for a distraction between tasks or are a car, train or plane passenger.  Each one is a delight and well worth the read.

Book Review – Mighty Like A Rose by Kitty Campanile

May 16, 2017

This is a love story set in Northern England against the backdrop of the 1984-1985 coalminers’ strike.  The author is at her best when she describes the effects of the food and clothing shortages on a small Yorkshire town and how the women of the community come together to help their men and each other through deprivations they face.  I would have liked to hear more about the motivation behind the action of the heroine’s abusive husband.  However, the care she has for her mineworker lover and his family is touchingly portrayed.  The story is easy to read and I can recommend it to anyone likes well written romantic stories set against a gritty background.
