About the Author:

A sixth generation Australian, Jan Reid's early years were not unlike many others born in the 1960's growing up on a wheat and sheep property in Central West, New South Wales. After the sun went down, almost every night she would be found reading a book, and under the bed covers with a torch when the lights were turned off.
 
In 2009 Jan became a freelance writer, in 2011 a Kindle book author, and in 2013 she completed the Diploma of Professional Writing - Novel Writing and Publishing, with High Distinction. In March 2014, she completed her first novel (Deep Water Tears), in November 2014, her second novel (Grace), and in November 2015, her third novel (Barons Reach). Grace and Barons Reach were both completed during the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) challenge. Jan is also the author of several children's picture books, self-published for her grandchildren.
 
Jan is still an avid reader although she no longer needs to hide under the bed covers with a torch. When she is not writing or reading, she puts on her walking shoes and takes off on one of her many favourite walking tracks, savouring the beauty and tranquillity of the South Coast area of New South Wales.

Review:

5.0 out of 5 stars I was pulled in begging for more on each page.By Larry W. Fish on January 15, 2016Format: Paperback Verified PurchaseGrace, is a wonderful book written by Jan Reid. Jan has a way of making the reader get pulled into the story as soon as they start to read it. It is a story of racism and love. There is no color barrier when it comes to love and Jan has an excellent way of bringing that across to the reader. As I read it I felt that I was right there with the characters watching them, seeing the expression on their faces, listening to them intently, and wondering when the next turn in the story was going to come about. I can't wait to read Jan's next book because I know the writing will be exceptional and I know she will make me feel like I am a part of the story. Giving someone that feeling is only brought about because an exceptional writer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful storyBy Peter Quinton on May 21, 2015Format: Kindle EditionA beautifully written story of love and vindication. I loved the pace and content of this Australian story, true to the country and people it was written about. The gentle narrative echoes older Australian bush writers, but it is my times that is being described. A wonderful second book in the series - and I am looking forward to the third book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful BookBy Christine Ramsay on April 27, 2015Format: Kindle EditionThis book, the second in the Dreaming series by Jan Reid, had me totally hooked. After reading the first in the series, Deep Water Tears, I was really looking forward to it. I couldn't help falling love with the characters. Once Grace meets her mother a wonderful relationship soon builds between them and also with her brother Daryl. My sympathies for Grace were soon engaged as she learns to come to terms with her origins despite efforts by others to belittle her family and their background. l loved the chemistry and developing romance between Grace and Dan and wanted so much to see it blossom despite social issues almost pulling them apart. The dreaming stories related in the book are so interesting to read and give you a little insight into Australian Aboriginal mythology. Jan has done her research well and I found myself fully and emotionally involved right from the first chapter. The ending leaves us hanging on for the next book in the series. A beautiful book which I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 starsFive StarsBy heather hill on July 26, 2015Format: PaperbackThoroughly enjoyed reading the second book in the series, a great story and can't wait for the next installment.
