The Forgotten Wife

My Silent Daughter


Reviews of Emma's Novels

‘Will make you cry and laugh, feel things you have not even thought about … A story that is so touching, extremely emotional, and ultimately heart provoking… I haven't read anything so original for a long time.’ 

The Magical World of Reading

 'There are books which leave their wispy trails around you that remind you to find your happiness. This was one such book of friendship… Had me turning the pages slowly, living each word, feeling each emotion, laughing and crying with them.’ 

Shalini's Books and Reviews

‘A truly special book. It’s both captivating and real, and beautifully written… A wonderful story, sensitively told, this book will stay with me.’
