REVIEW

First Born Son

"I rate this captivating story five out of five stars because the author excelled at evoking strong emotions in her readers. The characters' struggles, dilemmas, and relationships resonate with readers on a personal level, eliciting a wide range of emotions. This book evoked my emotions in different ways. I had mixedemotions of hatred and pity for some of the characters. I recommend this book to contemporary fiction enthusiasts, fans of realistic fiction, and those who enjoy stories that revolve around family dynamics, secrets, and the impact of past decisions on the present."

HEIRS AND SUCCESSORS

 

Book 4 in the Belleville family series

A near tragic accident. A heartbreaking betrayal. And a shocking secret that must never be revealed.

For the Belleville family, there is no warning of the challenges that lie ahead as the next generation begin to take centre stage even as the lives of the present generation begin to unravel spectacularly.

A sweeping Australian family saga that will keep you enthralled until the last word.

REVIEW

Heirs and Successors

"... A family saga that is rich in detail and delves into the intricacies of family relationships. It sweeps across the country and over to an estate and the aristocracy of England. Choices are key in the survival of this family to continue successfully.

This is book four in the series and I read it as a standalone.

I’m keen to see what happens in the new generation."
