Now up on my Book Review website is my review of the absolutely fantastic Matilda Windsor is Coming Home by Anne Goodwin. This historical fiction is set in the 1970s and 80s when steps are being taken to get residents of long term residential care back into the community, and I found I really cared about the main characters Matty, Henry and Janice and how it would all turn out. 5*s from me.
About the Author:
Anne Goodwin writes entertaining fiction about identity, mental health and social justice. She is the author of three novels and a short story collection published by a small independent press, Inspired Quill.
Her debut novel, Sugar and Snails, about a woman who has kept her past identity a secret for thirty years, was shortlisted for the 2016 Polari First Book Prize.
Her new novel, Matilda Windsor Is Coming Home, which has been featured on BBC Radio Cumbria, is inspired by her previous incarnation as a clinical psychologist in a long-stay psychiatric hospital.
