I was quite excited today to take part in something new for me. An Instagram Blog Tour for a book.
I’ve been enjoying Instagram for some time now, although it took me some time initially to work out what it was all about! You really can teach an old dog a new trick!
The swans on the lake began to sing. It was singing so loud they were almost screaming as if they were encouraging me to release what I had been keeping inside for so long.
Gudbjorg Thorisdottir has been hiding from the ghost of an ugly secret for most of her life. When she finally faces the truth of what happened in her childhood, the ghost floats away. Painting an evocative picture of life in Iceland, this is the story of a little girl who didn’t know how unnatural it was to experience both heaven and hell in the same house.
