The Guardian Angel Cover 3D

The Guardian Angel is my third Victorian novel and the one closest to my heart as it was inspired by my littlest grandson who is six-years-old, autistic and non-verbal. It’s about a girl from the workhouse who is employed as nursemaid to a young boy who can’t speak.

She tries to show her employers that, just because he can’t speak, it doesn’t mean the boy is stupid. In fact he’s the brightest, giggliest, cheeky boy she’s ever met. Read more here.
