I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

Stolen Child

Stolen Child - Laura Elliot

I felt like I could be onto a good thing with this novel when it started with an all time favourite poem, Stolen Child by W B Yeats.
It was very easy to read from the start and liked the characters even though I did struggle with Suzanne at times. I thought that her relationship with her daughter was heavily affected by the guilt that she felt, some of ways she controlled Joy were very chilling, especially when told from a child's point of view.
A touch overlong but I still enjoyed the novel.

Thank you to the publisher and the author for the invitation to read this novel via NetGalley.
