Round And Round by Terry Tyler & Giveaway!

Four Valentine cards – from four different men!

Sophie Heron’s fortieth birthday is looming, and she is fed up with her job, her relationship, her whole life – not to mention her boyfriend’s new ‘hobby’, in which she definitely doesn’t want to get involved…

Back in 1998 she had the choice of four men, and now she can’t help wondering how her life might have turned out if she’d chosen differently.

The person to whom Sophie had always been closest was her beloved Auntie Flick, her second mother, friend and advisor. Before her death in 2001, Flick said, “when I’m up there having a cuppa with St Peter, I’ll have a word with him about making me your guardian angel, shall I?”

As Sophie’s fortieth birthday draws near, she visits her aunt’s special place: a tree by a river, hidden from the world. Here she calls on Auntie Flick to show her the way forward – and help her look back into the past so she can see what might have been…


Sophie's almost forty. According to her mother things can only go downhill from there. Sophie wonders if she's right. She doesn't like her life at all. Her relationship with a man she doesn't really love turns into something she hates, because of his new interests Sophie wants to stay far away from. Since her best friend moved abroad she doesn't really have close friends who are around. She misses her aunt Flick now more than ever. Her beloved aunt was like a second mother and when she died Sophie was devastated. Her aunt promised to guide her before she passed away. Sophie wonders if she's made the right choice. In 1998 she received four cards on Valentine's Day, which man would have been mister right? Sophie and her aunt shared a special tree and Sophie is spending a lot of time there to think about life and the decisions she's made and has to make. Will her aunt stay true to her word and guide Sophie so she will steer her life in the right direction this time?
Round and Round is a story about important choices. What would or could have happened if they'd handled things differently is something a lot of people are often thinking about. Terry Tyler writes about that topic in a beautiful way. Aunt Flick is a wise person and she's there for Sophie all the time, she's a constant presence and I liked that. Sophie has to make a choice, she can't spend the next years in a relationship that's going nowhere. Her fortieth birthday is around the corner and if she wants to be happier something has to change. I loved reading about the way aunt Flick helps her to make her see and do things. Round And Round is such a great story, it's symbolic and it broadcasts several important life lessons without ever becoming obtrusive, which is really clever. I think Terry Tyler has written a fabulous story and I'm glad I had the chance to read it.
