Reviews

A wonderful evocation of the rugged Welsh coastline and Catherine's home life * HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW on THE WATER HORSE * Lively, atmospheric novel ... the writing is skillful, vivid and explicit * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH on THE WATER HORSE * A tenderly told and wonderfully evocative story * DAILY EXPRESS on JASMINE NIGHTS * Exotic, decadent, dangerous and terrific storytelling * Fanny Blake, WOMAN & HOME on JASMINE NIGHTS * What a gorgeous read. Exciting, romantic, unpredictable and funny. I didn't want it to end. You'll crave curry for weeks. * Tracey Ullman on EAST OF THE SUN * This engaging novel perfectly captures the last days of the Raj * DAILY EXPRESS on EAST OF THE SUN * A sweeping romance between a young Indian doctor and a British midwife. * Good Housekeeping * Gregson draws on accounts of the experience of English midwives in India to weave a compelling tale of the complex ties of family, class and culture. * Booklist * Heartbreaking poignant lovestory set in post-war India * HEAT MAGAZINE * I adored this wonderful story. I loved the characters who leapt from the page and lived in my mind: I wept at the heart break, and my heart lifted at the hope and the joy. The depth of detail covering the life of an Indian family and the conflict between the two cultures was totally convincing. The big dramatic moments were terrific, but where it truly shone for me was in the small but telling moments when I felt as if I could see into the hearts and minds of the characters. I believed every word and from the moment I began reading I truly felt as if I was there. Astonishingly good -- Dinah Jefferies, author of THE TEA PLANTER'S WIFE
