Book Review of ‘Pressed Pennies’ by Steven Manchester


Steven Manchester is a #1 best-selling author of a previous book – ‘Twelve Months’

I received a copy of Pressed Pennies in return for an objective review, which I was very happy to agree to as I would have been buying the book anyway. I have read 2 of Steven’s previous books and I love his writing style and characterisation techniques.

This edition of Pressed Pennies was published in 2014 by The Story Plant

ISBN:978 1611 88 135 6

I give this book a well deserved 5/5 stars.

This is basically a love story with a complication or two.

Rick and Abby grew up together and were best friends until Rick had to move away.

Fate has now brought them back onto the same path, their love for each other is strong and palpable but Abby has a daughter to consider.

Paige has grown up with an alcoholic father and constant arguments between her parents, since they split up ad divorced his regularity at collecting Paidge is sporadic at best and at other times he turns up drunk.

Paige has built a safe and secure relationship with her mother and sees Rick as a serious threat to this.

The novel is written in Steven’s inimitable style, his characters are the most real people I have met in any books recetly. They are well depicted, drawn in detail in your mind as the reader, grow and change with the plot and his unique ability to get completely within the head of each of his characters is second to none.

 

I highly recommend this book and any of his other books which are available, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

A well deserved 5/5 although there are a few very minor edits which were missed during the process.
