Good Afternoon to you,

I wonder, have you ever nurtured a dream which you hope to achieve at some point in your life?

.... and if you have nurtured a dream,  have you managed  to turn that dream into reality?

Well I have to tell you, I know someone who has managed to do just that.... turn their dream into reality. 

Let me introduce you to my sister,

Elaine Roberts. Elaine's dream was to become a published writer, and she achieved this goal by having her short stories published in a series of  magazines. She was thrilled when each of her short stories was published, but in her heart of hearts what she really wanted, was to have her novel published. Well the exciting news is that my sister, Elaine has recently had her first novel published.... isn't that the most wonderful achievement.

The Foyles Bookshop Girls.  

The Foyles Bookshop Girls has been written as a 3 book series,  with the first book, Foyles Bookshop Girls available as we speak. 

The 2nd book, 'The Foyles Bookshop Girls at War' will be published on 15th January of this year.

With the 3rd and final book, 'Christmas at The Foyles Bookshop'  due to be published in August.

So as a treat, I thought I would share with you a brief outline of The Foyles Bookshop Girls.... just to see if it tickles your fancy, which I feel sure it will.

'The story is based in London, 1914: one ordinary day, three girls arrive for work at London's renowned Foyles Bookshop.  But when war with Germany is declared their lives will never be the same again....

Alice has always been the 'sensible' one in her family. But decidedly against her father's wishes, she accepts a job at Foyles Bookshop; and for bookworm Alice it's a dream come true.

But with the country at war, Alice's happy world is shattered in an instant.  Determined to do what she can, Alice works in the bookshop by day, and risks her own life driving an ambulance around bomb-ravaged London by night.  However busy she keeps herself, she can't help but think of the constant danger those she loves are facing on the frontline....

Alice, Victoria and Molly couldn't be more different and yet they share a friendship that stems back to their childhood _ a friendship that provides everyday solace from the tribulations and heartbreak of war.'

Are you tempted.... has this brief outline of the Foyles Bookshop Girls left you wanting more.... well the good news is, The Foyles Bookshop Girls Trilogy can be found on and are available in the Kindle edition, or if you are like me and love to feel the story unfolding, by the turning of a page, then the paperback edition is also available.

Before I leave you, I have to ask you something.  Is this shameless advertising on my part.... almost certainly.... but when my sister achieves her dream of having, not 1, not 2, but 3 books published, then surely a little shameless advertising on my part is perfectly fine..... don't you agree.

Take care and I will catch up with you next Saturday.

As always.
