The Cornish Knot by Vicky Adin

The Cornish Knot

by Vicky Adin

This one is a fictional novel, but, she says, is an amalgam of stories she gathered while researching the family tree. Vicky's decided to call her stories The PastFinders series because they are all linked to stories about history, family, love and renewal.  

Every family has its secrets, its strengths and its weaknesses. What will we discover about our finders as they search their past? What will we learn about ourselves?

The blurb for The Cornish Knot says the story is about Megan, whose world is destroyed when her husband dies suddenly. Still grieving, she receives a mysterious package from Cornwall that jolts her out of her cloistered lifestyle. It contains a century-old journal. From her home in New Zealand she embarks on a journey of personal renewal to find her past, exposing secrets that change her life and involves the Italian art world. 

You can read more about it on Vicky's website - www.vickyadin.co.nz 

It's a great read. But don't just take it from me, read it yourself and decide.

It is available as a print book from me (just send me an email) for $25. Postage in New Zealand is complimentary. 

For overseas people, print on demand is available from Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/The-Cornish-Knot-Centuries-PastFinders/dp/0992262887/ref=pd_rhf_dp_p_dnr_3

Or if you have a Kindle e-reader you can order it as an ebook from Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HHH7K8Y 
If you have a different e-reader you can also buy it as en ebook from Smashwords - https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/400992
I believe it costs about $5 to purchase an e-copy.

If you don't have an e-reader but would like to try, you can download an app from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000493771
You can then read the book on your computer, laptop, tablet, iPad and even your iPhone if you are so inclined. Technology is amazing these days!

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
