“Yesterday’s Sun was my very first novel and was a story that, when it came to me, I knew I just had to write. I wanted to create a character who could do something that I could not, to sacrifice your life to save your child. The book was selected for the Richard And Judy Book Club and will always have a special place in my heart.”
How could you ever choose between your own life and the life of your child?
Newly-weds Holly and Tom have just moved into an old manor house in the picturesque English countryside. When Holly discovers a Moondial in the overgrown garden and its strange crystal mechanism, little does she suspect that it will change her life forever. For the Moondial has a curse. Each full moon, Holly can see into the future – a future which holds Tom cradling their baby daughter, Libby, and mourning Holly’s death in childbirth…
Holly realises the Moondial is offering her a desperate choice: give Tom the baby he has always wanted and sacrifice her own life; or save herself and erase the life of the daughter she has fallen in love with.

Hello, I’ve been working my way through your books. I started with ” Where I found You” then ‘The Child’s Secret” and am now on “Yesterday’s Sun” ( reading them all in the wrong order I know!)
All the books have been really ‘un-put-downable’ but Yesterday’s Sun has saw me read over half of it in one go. I’m looking forward to the other half tonight!
It’s a riveting read, and a story that draws you in and immerses you into the lives of the characters. The story line is fabulous.
Keep the books coming please!!
Thank you, Lori, it’s always exciting to hear that someone’s discovering my books.
Yesterday’s Sun was my first novel and the one that kicked off my writing career, so it will always have that little bit of extra magic in its pages for me!!
I have another two books in the pipeline and I really hope you’ll enjoy them too.
Fab! I can’t wait for the new books to hit the shelves.
I’ve also read the Missing Husband, and have ordered The Goodbye Gift. Ive passed the books on to family and friends, with a highly recommended note attached.
You are a truly gifted writer.
That’s lovely of you to say so and thank you for recommending me too, that’s the best kind of marketing for any author!
