A lovely, uplifting, gentle read that is both captivating and charming.
The Red Dress – Booklist
A thoroughly enjoyable novel with a strong feel-good factor … and buckets of charm.
Matters Arising – Booklist
A nice dry, wry style … you who have tears to shed, prepare to shed them now
Harrison shows herself to be more than equal to the complexities of her plot … impeccable timing.
Harrison’s cinematic story has it all: history, war, passion, love, and heartbreaking loss.

The Nightingale’s Nest
We first meet the real, living John Ashe in the 1920s, seen through the eyes of this book’s young female narrator, Pamela Griffe, and share the horror and fascination she feels for him.
A Spell of Swallows
The Final – and darkest – novel in the sequence that began with Swan Music. In 1919 John Ashe, disfigured and damaged by his experiences in the war, looks down on the lovely English village of Eadenford and says simply: ‘This’ll do.’

Harriet Blair, is a wife and mother of two teenage children, and the author of torrid historical romances. When her husband is sent overseas for a year she stumbles into a passionate affair with a hot-blooded Greek who also happens to be the local GP…
Harriet Blair makes her second appearance (there is a third). I didn’t write the HB books sequentially, they just popped up when I needed some light relief in between more serious projects.
