Reviews by Shelly

The English Orphans

by Mary Jane Holmes

An insight into social history in story form, this book brings to life what it was like to be poor, female, alone, and reliant on state welfare. While the style and writing lack the snap of modern day stories, the themes are still relevant as readers are drawn to question where charity begins, and reminded that wealth is not a pre-requisite to build a noble character.

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
