Présentation de l'éditeur

Millions felt it...
A few turned towards it...
One man believes he knows the source of...the Rapture.

On a bright spring day in 2015 an event occurs. Millions of people around the world feel that something positive has happened. Some report noticing a certain smell, or taste, a sound, etc. Then a few claim they know what direction it originated from. Religious people believe it's the start of the ‘Rapture’, while scientists say it's a natural event.
Governments become concerned. The media search for answers. The whole world is captivated by this mysterious event.
In a small village in the south-west of England, Jack Clarke also felt the Rapture. He felt the positive mood and strange sensations, but he also felt something else - something only he experienced. He felt connected with someone. Someone who can answer the question: what was the Rapture?

Lavender Hill is a novella (about 110 pages on a kindle)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Swimming against the tide - I enjoyed this book very much 21 septembre 2013
Par S. Pearson - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Unlike the previous three reviewers, I enjoyed this book very much. The characters were well-developed, likable or interestingly dislikable, and I had no trouble keeping track of who was who. Maybe since I've had little exposure to concept of The Rapture, the author's conception of it didnt strike me as odd. I was a little surprised to find the story will be continued in a future book, but didnt find it ended too abruptly (which I did find to be the case in, for ex. Past Imperfect 1, by John Matthews, a highly recommended book.) All in all, I found it was a nice novella-sized story. 9 reviewers out of 10 on gave this book 4 or 5 stars; perhaps the UK setting puts off N. American readers from the start so they're less keen to continue or finish; personally it's one of my preferred settings for books so encourages me to keep on reading....

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Misleading description 21 mars 2013
Par T. Sickles - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The description for this novella sounded very promising, but the story itself just didn't stand up to expectations. The first few pages caught my interest, with the description of a mysterious occurance and odd reaction from those effected by it. But then a few chapters later you realize that this event was meant to be the "Rapture", and this "Rapture" is not at all what most of the readers would expect it to be. And, this is where the author started to lose me.

I'm all for poetic license, so to speak, but if an author is going to choose a well known concept to describe an event, then they should at least stick to general premise of that concept. This author's Rapture was an event that left those it touched alive, well, and with general feelings of happiness. In other words, the Rapture was based on the textbook definition of the word, not the religious concept. Hence, why the Book Description seemed misleading to me.

To be honest, I did not finish the novella, either (like another reviewer said). I read about 75% of it, and called it quits. If it had just been my conflicting expectation of the Rapture, I would have kept reading. But the story was getting bogged down and moving slowly, the characters weren't terribly likable, and there were so many of them it was hard to remember who was who. I just didn't enjoy reading the story itself. Sorry, but I can't recommend this one.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a complete story. 18 mars 2013
Par Terresa Ellison - Publié sur

I was intrigued with Lavendar Hill but disappointed to find that it is not at all a complete story and ends somewhat abruptly. I found the writing and character development to be good, especially for a novella, but was very disappointed when I came to the end and nothing at all was resolved.

I sincerely hope PJ Garland writes a sequel to Lavender Hill. The characters and events hold your interest and keep you wondering what's going to happen next. Thankfully, it's a fun sci/fi-fantasy novel and stays away from sophomoric drivel. It's well worth the read!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Such a good description 18 mars 2013
Par Barbara Mcauliffe - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
But such a very bad book. I got about 80 percent through and couldn't even work up enough interest to skim through to see how it ended. Could maybe have been a good 5 page short.
