Another lovely review for my novel After The Night. This one is from 'les-fic' reviewer 'Salem West' on her review site 'The Rainbow Reader'. Great to be getting all of this amazing feedback.

My novel After The Night just had the most amazing review on Amazon UK that was so lovely it made me cry...

"5.0 out of 5 stars 'After The Night' by Rachel Dax, 14 Jan 2012
By hazeyfantasey (Devon UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: After The Night (Kindle Edition)
I read 'After The Night' a profoundly moving first novel by Rachel Dax cover to cover. I was completely immersed in the lives of these women. I actually cried at one point, (not wanting to give too much away). I loved all the characters each with their own story; the fascination for me was I felt I had known each and every one of them. The pace of this story is excellent and there really is so much to love.
I don't want to make it sound sappy, because this book smacks you hard where it hurts the most. Really if you can't think straight... this is the book for you, with a reference to Radcliffe Hall, the characters include an adorable old Suffragette Campaigner that broke my heart, a mother from hell, the complexities of coming to terms with who you are and Family expectations. This book takes us on a journey with Leah which most of us know only too well.
But for me it was Jean with her unique people management style and sex appeal that simply leaps from the page. I adored that unique quality of being too sexy for their shirt and not knowing it... Jean is so appealing. I wanted to grab her by the hand and take her home. I loved this book and can't wait for more from Rachel Dax. After The Night"
