Review:

A vividly told and heartwarming saga. * Coventry Evening Telegraph on BORNE ON THE TIDE * Fresh and thoughtful. * Historical Novels Review on BORNE ON THE TIDE * Here's a great excuse to put your feet up and escape into a world which celebrates Portsmouth's past...It's really well worth the read * Portsmouth News on WRITTEN ON THE TIDE * A rich first novel . . . packed with interesting people living what might appear to be mundane lives, but of course they are not. We get an insight into the lives of the families of sailors, their good and bad fortune, their ups and downs. Decent people who we want to win through. * Betty Burton on WAITING FOR THE TIDE * Julia Bryant creates a vivid picture of Portsmouth in the final years and aftermath of the "Great" War of 1914-1918, weaving it into a story that pulses with the warm blood of humanity. * Rhona Martin on WAITING FOR THE TIDE * A pulsating and heart-warming saga peopled with human and compelling characters and with convincing dialogue . . . a rich first novel. * Yorkshire Post on WAITING FOR THE TIDE *
