My Journey in Writing

My name is Lynne Stringer and I love writing! Of course, that’s not all I love. I also love reading books, especially ones that take me out of the every day and into a new world. It doesn’t have to be a completely imaginary world, either. Anything with fascinating characters and interesting storylines will do. My first young adult novel, The Heir, was accepted for publication by Wombat Books and released on 1 June 2013. It is the first book in the Verindon trilogy. It’s so exciting to have a real copy of my book in my hands.


Lady of Bolton Hill, The

Lady of Bolton Hill, The - Elizabeth Camden I enjoyed The Lady of Bolton Hill very much. I felt it was a little slow to start, and it was certainly quite preachy, although I felt that fitted in with the story.
My biggest complaint was its presentation of the viewpoint that God will always keep you safe. While this may not have been directly what the author was trying to communicate, I think it could be implied by readers, and that is concerning, especially when you consider the many Christians who have died in the service of God over the years. Also, I felt Daniel's change of heart was too abrupt. I think it would have been better if signs of a gradual softening was evident earlier, rather than being led to believe that that much bitterness and ingrained behaviour could be swept away entirely in a week.
In spite of that, it was still a good read.
