Robbie’s Inspiration: Book review, The Heart Stone by Judith Barrow

So appreciate this lovely review of my book, The Heart Stone, from Robbie.

Robbie's inspiration

What Amazon says

1914 – and everything changes for Jessie on a day trip to Blackpool. She realises her true feelings for her childhood friend, Arthur. Then just as they are travelling home from this rare treat, war is declared.

Arthur lies about his age to join his Pals’ Regiment. Jessie’s widowed mother is so frightened of the future, she agrees to marry the vicious Amos Morgan, making Jessie’s home an unsafe place for her. Before he leaves, Arthur and Jessie admit their feelings and promise to wait for each other. Arthur gives Jessie a heart-shaped stone to remember him. But with Arthur far away, their love leaves Jessie with a secret that will see her thrown from her home and terribly abused when she can hide the truth no longer.

Faced with a desperate choice between love and safety, Jessie must fight for survival, whatever the cost.

  1. I’m sure I’ll love it just as much, Judith.
    Did I mention to you already that the book arrived over the weekend? Yup, it did!
    I’ll be rubbing the cover until the day I get started reading.
    Thanks for writing this novel.
    I even found a heart shaped rock— flat, deep rust-orange— just like that, found it at the beach and that reminded me to purchase the book. Love it when the universe does that! Golly… love it!
    All the best. Be well, my sweet.
