    About "Alex Martin"

    1. Alex Martin

      I came late to writing No, that s wrong I came late to publishing my writing And what a thrilling ride it s proving to be I m never happier than when bashing both brain and keyboard in my Plotting Shed at the end of my garden On gloriously creative days, I can look up and find hours have passed I m amazed the scenery is unchanged, fixed, when I ve been absorbed in heart stopping drama or tragedy, or romance At last, I am following my bliss I m a bit late to the party, but I m dancing.There was an old black and gold typewriter knocking about my childhood home When I wasn t skinning my knees climbing trees or wandering aimlessly in the countryside with my dog and my dreams, I could be found, as now, typing away with imaginary friends whispering in my ear.My first novel, The Twisted Vine, is based on a happy time picking grapes in France in the 1980s I met some amazing people there but none as outrageous as those that sprang to life on my screen Daffodils, is based in Wiltshire, where I grew up It attempts to portray how ordinary lives, and the rigid social order, were radically altered by the catalyst of the First World War This book developed into The Katherine Wheel Series, with a sequel set in 1919 in the aftermath of WW1, Peace Lily, and Speedwell, taking the characters into the roaring twenties.The next one, as yet un named, is a ghost story I m just listening to the whispers from the other side to get the full picture.

    1. Wow, to put it in the vernacular of the era of Speedwell, what a rip-roaring book. I loved it. Weaved against the background of life in the nineteen twenties, the story of the protagonist, Katy Phipps, continues with as many joys and tragedies that have haunted her all her life. It is obvious that Alex Martin has done her research thoroughly of the world in which her characters move. In this latest of the Katherine Wheel novels the characters have grown and developed. The story of Katy and Jem, [...]


    2. Great storyI only hope that the next book comes. I love these characters and their stories. I finished this one in one day as well. Would love to read more about their lives. The setting was great and the historical aspects were very interesting to read.


    3. Can't Wait for Book 4!I am in love with these characters. This series could go on forever and I'd be perfectly happy to follow to the end. (But I don't want it to end)



    4. The only thing I can use to relate this to, is the beginning of Chitty,Chitty Bang Bang. In my mind I see those rattley, old cars whipping around the corners of the road, as they pushed the limits of what the current engineering could do. Another great book that kept me interested in the characters and their lives.



    5. A fantastic book as are the others in the series. I can't wait for book 4 to come out. A great everyday story set just after the war with the hardships of starting again. A real page turner.


    6. This third book wasn't quite as engaging to me as the other two, though I did wish the series continued! What was most interesting was to read about the impact of the automobile on community life. During the war Katy had worked as an ambulance mechanic. Jem returned home with a wooden prosthetic arm, and thus could not return to his beloved work as a farmer. They eventually started a new venture, selling gasoline and repairing cars along a roadway. Although difficult to get established, this was [...]


    7. Read all three of the series. I became caught up in this series. A few very late nights still up and reading. All characters were very well developed. I need Kleenex at times,but that's what tells you your in love with these characters. I would have liked to know more about the manor and the children. What happened with the other dear ones. Do you think another book might let us know the answers ? Will definitely recommend to friends.


    8. Enjoyed itI really enjoyed the third book in this series. I'm hoping there is a fourth book as the ending left a few unanswered questions. I wasn't sure I would like it a well with the racing theme but it blended into the story well. I would recommend all three books.


    9. EnjoyedWas good to see what happens to Jem and Katy :) ,very sad its the end of the series ,hope she will write m k re


    10. This was the final book in the Katherine Wheel trilogy. The books begin in 1914 and end in 1927. If you like Downton Abbey, I think you would enjoy this trilogy. The setting for all 3 books is Cheadle Manor with the Smyths live and their tenants and servants in the surrounding area. This book begins in the early 1920's and life is changing drastically in England. Jem and Katy have their garage and Cassandra and Doug are left to manage the estate, although Doug has a great interest in cars. Both [...]


    11. This was the final book in the Katherine Wheel trilogy. The series begins 1914 and ends in 1927. I think Downton Abbey fans would enjoy this series. The setting of the books is mainly Cheadle Manor with parts of the first one on the battlefields of WWI, the second visits America and third is back on the Manor as everyone tries to recover from the war. The changes in society alone from 1914 to 1927 were interesting to note, along with the changes the automobile brought. Katy and Jem struggle to k [...]


    12. This is the third book in the Katherine Wheel series and I can tell you it's just as good as the first two. After Cass' husband is killed racing, there is trouble between she and Kate. Kate's business flourishes and she and Jem begin to make their fortune. At the same time, Cass is faced with the daunting task of selling off more land and watching the Manor sllide for it's glory. Cass has a terrible time getting over her loss and begins to resent Kate's success. I really enjoyed this series.


    13. Abrupt Conclusion to the TrilogyDisappointed in Speedwell, the final book in the Katherine Wheel seriese abrupt conclusion was not satisfying and seemed rushed and out of sync with the rest of the series


    14. It needs a 4th book. Way too many loose ends, including one big one. It would be like Downton Abbey ending with the cliffhanger when Matthew died in the car crash. Sigh.England, 1920's
