Dr Angie Lawrence in her mid thirties was a clinical psychologist. She runs a new purpose-built twelve bed Hazelnut assessment centre on the Orkney Island of Rousay. Children were referred from all Scottish Authorities when anorexia, bulimia and social anxiety cases required further assessment and treatment. Angie and her husband Sam lived in a 18th century stone cottage outhouse. Sam Lawrence takes in all the flowers that are that delivered to their home for Angie. What I liked about this story is that the author knows very little about the profession of clinical psychologist. I Adored the way Miller Caldwell has created a bizarre personality in Angie. We not only follow Dr Angie Lawrence journey, but we also follow the journey of some of the children that are sent to the Hazelnut centre. Review by ireadnovels.wordpress.com

A good holiday read.

I served on the committee of the Society of Authors in Scotland. I was the events manager. I have published 23 books since starting to be a full time author in 2003.
I was the camp manger (Post earthquake 2005) in the NWFP of Pakistan and was first to alert authorities that Osama bin Laden was in Abbotabad. I was the Regional Reporter to the Children's Hearings (The Scottish legal system for placing children on supervision or care.)
Now with increasing memory problems, my last book may have been written although I have written an unpublished novel. Having great editors to change my work is a super help. So to Alan, David in France and Alex on Jura, thanks team.
