Reviewed: Satchfield Hall by Pauline Barclay

"This book evokes powerful emotions from the reader," says Susan Livingstone

Henry Bryant-Smythe has no heart.  He views his wife and daughter as assets.  He takes great pleasure in causing his wife, Muriel, discomfort and embarrassment.  He explodes in rage when he finds out his unmarried daughter, Celia, is pregnant.  He concocts a plan that will cause his family and neighbors years of pain.

Pauline Barclay has written a powerful tale that draws the reader in and makes them feel like they are part of the story.  The reader feels Muriel's and  Celia's pain as the tale unfolds, becoming angrier as time goes by.  I actually had the urge to hit Henry Bryant-Smythe in the face with an iron skillet.  I'm sure others will feel that same anger.

This book evokes powerful emotions from the reader.  If you haven't already, I suggest you buy and read this phenomenal book now  You rock, Pauline!!!!  Keep writing!
