Review: Going Into a Dark House

User Review  - Karen - Goodreads

Some glorious short stories with writing so vivid that you could taste the damson tart and feel the breezes near the meeting house. A wonderful description of a wedding photograph; capturing the scene in so few words. So happy to have had the recommendation for Old Filth from Joan M. Read full review

User Review  - Clare Coffey - Goodreads

I really did enjoy this. I have never read any of Jane's work although I have heard of her. This book is a compilation of her short stories and I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. I would recommend this book to friends and colleagues. Read full review
