Queen and Sword


For some reason over the past week I’ve been wanting to delve into the world of being a book reviewer.  I don’t know why that is and then I discovered the Australian Women Writers Challenge and decided is was perfect for me and signed up.

Here is a little explanation from the AWW Blog about what it’s all about

What is it?

“Help me to understand. Christ, Isa, you can’t give me bits and pieces and expect me to see the whole. You’re angry with me for not being happy with you, but how could I be when you kept that person from me? I don’t know you, not because I didn’t ask the right questions, but because you never trusted me enough to let me in.” Because he couldn’t help himself, he trailed the back of his fingers down her cheek. “You’re right about me, I want more.
