Precious Little Lives by Lyndsay-Jean Campbell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another cleverly written story by the author. This time against the backdrop of World War II the tale unfolds of Francie and how the life she thought she'd have is ripped away. I don't want to spoil this story so won't say any more other than it's reflective of a situation many women face, in the past, and still today. This is so authentically written and you'll drop straight into the pages and wonder why you don't want to put it down. Bravo!

When I started my first book, about halfway through a second book came hurtling down the inspiration channel at me. It involved a second set of characters and a story that just wanted to get on the page, so I went with it. Threads were tying together the heroines in both books, even though they go in different directions. To me, it made sense that they become part of a series, so I pondered a name that would encapsulate what they both endured to move on in life.
Lotus Season resonated well, first the flower which must push through the darkness and mud to blossom, then I added season because I wanted to show that these flowers were blooming. Such incredible beauty that must face adversity to shine was the perfect parallel.
