Review for Carla by Mark Barry

Carla Final

It’s Carla’s third birthday so it seems fitting that in my catch up of adding older reviews to my blog I put hers up today. If you want to find out more of how she came about there is a terrific new blog post out telling all…

Carla is a book that will stay with me for a long time*. The mark of great storytelling for me is whether or not I can leave the characters whilst I’m reading and my emotions after I’ve finished the book. If I say that I read this in less than a day and I didn’t want it to end you get the picture.

I rooted for John, I loved Carla, it made me cry and I was left feeling bereft (this is always a good thing!). The characters were wonderfully drawn and the detail of the darker aspects of John and his history so knowledgeable and assured I trusted Barry completely. Truly brilliant writing in a style I love and I shall definitely be reading more from this author.

*This it turns out is an understatement…I only have to turn to that opening page to want to read it all over again…and wish it was for the first time.

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of The Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. Following completion of the trilogy she has been asked for more and so has written a short story based on a favourite character from the series. Therefore, the latest to join the stable is The Joker and for the first time all her books are available free, with Kindle Unlimited. Georgia has just begun work on her fourth novel, this time it’s a standalone seductively called Project A ever since she found out that the name she wanted for it has been taken for a book about a less than savoury character who has dominated the news for the last few years…so it’s back to the drawing board on that one! She has also recently started running workshops and providing one-to-one support for those wishing to learn how to self-publish and you can find her, under her real name, at www.threeshirespublishing.com. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her overactive imagination! Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire where she lives with her much neglected husband, son and two dogs. Her daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out and taken her extensive cushion collection with her.
