by Caroline Smailes … a review ...
Disraeli Avenue is like a box of butterflies. Each of the thirty two chapters has it’s own distinctive pattern. Some will make you laugh, and some will make you cry. Some will make you go back and read them again; and like butterflies, some will prove elusive.
In this novella, Caroline Smailes has created thirty two snapshots of moments in time which weave in and out of the plot of In Search Of Adam. You will recognise the characters, and they’ll make you think about ISoA in a new way.
Caroline has also used the novella to demonstrate the sheer joy and excitement of writing. Each self-contained chapter reveals its secret in a different way, making a unique impression on the mind.
The final chapter takes you right into the heart of ISoA. It throws light into some of the darker corners, but still leaves some questions unanswered. And chapters 19 and 30 will make you ache for Jude even more.
Like In Search of Adam, Disraeli Avenue is a ‘must read’, but more than that, it has been written in order to help all the ‘Judes’ out there. Disraeli Avenue is available as a free download from Caroline’s website, and Caroline has done all this to benefit the charity One In Four which helps people who have suffered abuse.

PS - lovely Sarah has given me an award. I'd like to pass it on to Sally, Lane, Leigh and Caroline.
