Angela Gascoigneabout this book: Soup is my fourth e book. I was delighted to find it released on Amazon on Christmas Day as the festive season features hugely in the story.
Soup is a heart-warming love story with lots of unexpected twists and turns and some very loveable characters. I really like the title I chose. 'Soup' is short and straight to the point. It's also very appropriate since a soup kitchen is a major part of the book.
In Ava I aimed to create a caring character the reader would warm to and empathise with, laugh and cry with as she takes the first tentative steps to live her dream of helping the homeless, and makes the terrifying move to break free from her unhappy marriage.
When Nikki's mum loses her battle with cancer, she travels to Cork to search for her biological father. He doesn't even know of her existence – until one day, out of the blue, a phone call threatens to blow his whole world apart.
Ava's life with Richard feels more like a prison sentence than a marriage. She just can't seem to stop putting her foot in it and getting into his bad books. When she blurts out her arrangements for Christmas Day it's the straw that broke the camel's back where Richard is concerned. Feeling angry and betrayed he makes some arrangements of his own.
Serena dreams of finding true love. She's just not sure who should be the lucky man: Simon, who supposedly joined the navy then vanished off the face of the earth, or Con, who, although he'd never say it, is deeply hurt by Serena's constant rejection. Will her spell book, handed down through the generations hold the key to her future happiness?
• 5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and heart-warming story, well worth a read. CLawless
From the very first page this book draws you in and captivates your imagination. It is hard to put down and kept me reading right up until the very end.
• 5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginary Magic? White Magic? Black Magic? "Soup" is a magical book - recommended. Sarah Stewart
These two characters, and many others, are brilliantly drawn, and the story gripping, but there is much more to this book than appears at first.
