If you're looking for a gift or a book for yourself look no further. Try Bryony Harrison's "Unwanted Gift: The Trilogy." Originally designed as a preteen or adolescent novel, the book was extremely interesting to this senior citizen as well. In it Harrison masterfully gets inside the head of a ten-year-old orphan showing Harrison's adept ability to let the reader in on the motivations of a child.

This is Harrison's first completed novel but is well-written nevertheless because its author began writing a detective book at the tender age of five. Now as a recent graduate of Kingston University outside of London she is writing book reviews, cooking articles, and is hard at work on another novel.

This book starts out in an orphanage and centers around the central character Maria and examines her friendship with two other inhabitants of the facility who are fraternal twins. With Maria's subsequent adoption the friends are separated and Maria misses the twins very much. By skillful use of italics Harrison lets her readers in on Maria's conflicts and tribulations as well as her true feelings. Fascinating material this is.

Despite two very loving and wise adoptive parents, Maria runs away to visit her beloved twins. Her endeavor complicates and endangers her. In the second book of the trilogy Maria and the twins are in danger again in some underground caverns. The situation is serious because Maria and the twins lack the necessary judgment. The final part of the trilogy finds Maria and the twins in yet another perilous predicament. This is where I find a generation gap with the author. At the advanced age of seventy I like books designed for the younger generation to end happily like a Nancy Drew book, but this one does not even though Harrison's ending is probably more realistic.

This book is available on Amazon.com or Amazon UK

I would like to read your book, Voyager.

Perhaps you would trade for one of mine.

E-books are the way to transfer, because the mail or UPS is very expensive.

If you have your book on a PDF, which I'm sure you do, you can land it on my kindle.

Then I will send you many of my novels in PDF form that will land on your e-reader whether it is an ipad, iphone, kindle, nook or whatever.

PM me if you are interested.

Thanks, Wig
