Please welcome my guest speaker, Ms. Lisa Shambrook! We’re celebrating Mother’s Day with a sweet deal on a sweet story! Take it away, Lisa!
Mothers – those wonderful women who care for us, shape us, berate us and love us…I love that
Mother’s Day is part of spring, a time when Mother Nature is renewing life and blossoming. It’s a
timely reminder to think of that person who did the same for us.
Both my novels ‘Beneath the Rainbow’ and ‘Beneath the Old Oak’ deal with the complex relationship
between mother and daughter. In ‘Rainbow’, a mother’s grief of losing her child is painted alongside
the touching dilemma facing her lost daughter in Heaven. Freya wants to console her mother and
move on in the afterlife herself, but she can’t whilst her mother grieves. Her goal is to give her
mother a rainbow and relief.
‘Old Oak’ follows another mother/daughter relationship, this time a
young teen tries to deal with her mother’s anxiety and depression and finds herself lost amid her
mother’s emotions. She needs to find strength and support and an old oak tree offers just that.
Relationships are always tricky, but ultimately rewarding and inspiring.
My books are on sale over the Mother’s Day period, so if you’d like to read or gift your own mother
an enchanting tale…these might just be the books for you.
A writer and dreamer who loves dragons… Lisa began weaving intricate stories inside her
imagination from a young age, but these days her words find themselves bursting forth in the forms
of flash fiction, short stories and novels. A love of the ocean and life in West Wales, rich in legend
and lore, heavily influences her lyrical and emotional writing.
