'From the moment I started reading Seven Signs I couldn't put it down. For a first novel its truly amazing. Be ready to be taken along with the main character, Eve, on a roller coaster journey from city to outback Australia. Its a ride of personal growth, full of ups and downs embellished by sharp observations of people, places and times. While there are some slower patches to the story-line in the middle, the book quickly gathers pace.
Key elements of the plot are brought to a satisfying conclusion as Eve gathers strength to conquer the demons that have plagued her throughout her life.
This book carries an empowering message about bullying and abuse and I hope there is a sequel from this talented new storyteller.
