Glowing review below from ingénue Magazine Autumn 2019:
From Jenny Dean, 28 July 2018
Julia is a talented writer whose stories in this book evoke lots of different emotions. She shows her sense of humour in several depicted here and her eye for detail in character via dialogue rings true. My favourites were ‘News of Leon’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut’. Do give it a go.
From Fatima Rosales Naya, 29 August 2017
This is a collection of varied and imaginative tales, touching on many different topics, situations, characters and outcomes. Some are funny and lighthearted, some heart-warming and some profoundly sad, but they all touch a nerve. I love Julia’s Macfarlane’s simple and direct style with a gift for the mundane and down-to-earth talk, and yet, elegantly written and most enjoyable. I look forward to reading more stories, short or long, from this fine author.
