The Girl from County Clare

"The historical aspects of the story are so accurate & described so perfectly that the reader will need to remind themselves that the story is fiction.... a thoroughly satisfying read... that passes the test as a work of history and is equally satisfying as a novel that will have your attention from first to last. 4 stars" - Frank O'Shea, The Irish Echo, Sydney.

The Art of Secrets

"Vicky Adin keeps a tight rein on the alternating viewpoint and change of tone of her two main characters Emma & Charlotte. Their reactions are always credible. Their progress from antagonists to friends was seamless as the layers of the story peeled back like petals, exposing the truth at the flower's heart. Highly recommended."
