about the author

I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.

What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.

Enchantment by Maria Adams on 30 August 2017

How easy it is to misjudge and believe the unbelievable. Is it our own mistakes we reflect and see in others? All humans have this ability and possibly use it without thought or reason. All of these things are reflected in this delightful story.

Listen to what romance, judgement, betrayal and retribution can do to an innocent life.

How the beautiful young girl is left to face false accusations and punishment alone. Which changes her whole life pattern. How she copes and what happens to the rest her life.

Rating: 10/10
