It’s a real pleasure today to be part of the blog blitz for Change of Life by Anne Stormont, her standalone first novel: published in 2014, it’s available both for kindle and in paperback. My thanks to Kelly at Love Books Tours for the invitation and support.
Just a promotion post today, but you’ll already know how much I’ve enjoyed Anne’s writing. I’ve reviewed both Settlement and Fulfilment from her three-book Skye series, and I’m looking forward to re-sharing those reviews for a couple more blog blitzes in September and October – along with extracts so you can get a taste of her writing too. I’d really love to catch up with this book too when I have the opportunity – let’s take a closer look…
Be careful what you wish for…
Wife to heart surgeon and control freak, Tom, and mother to four adolescent children, Rosie feels taken for granted as she juggles family life and her work as a teacher. She longs for a change of life.
When she hits a teenage boy with her car, her life explodes into uncharted territory. The boy is Robbie – and Rosie discovers he is part of a terrible secret that Tom has kept for seventeen years. Then Rosie is diagnosed with breast cancer.
Rosie leaves home and begins the fight for her life. Meanwhile, Tom is forced to learn what it means to be a husband and father. He struggles to keep his family together and strives to get his wife back.
Now doesn’t that look like one I’d really enjoy? It might just look like one you’d enjoy too…
About the author
Anne Stormont was born in Scotland and although she has travelled all over the world – including a teaching exchange to South Africa, four trips to Australia and several visits to the Middle East – it’s where she still lives.
She began making up stories as a child in order to entertain her four wee sisters. But as an adult, being busy with motherhood and working as a teacher, it took a long time and a mortality wake-up call for her to get that first book written.
She’s a compulsive crossworder, yoga practitioner, avid reader, keen walker and enthusiastic gardener. She can be a bit of a subversive old bat, but she tries to maintain a kind heart. She also loves tea, penguins and being with her grandchildren.
Change of Life was her first novel and she has since published three more. Her books are all set in Scotland and are contemporary romances where the main characters may be slightly older but are not necessarily wiser.
