Review - Untying the Knot by Linda Gillard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
jaffa's rating 5paws - he's not seen me so quiet for a long time !!

Take a damaged war hero with a vulnerable ex-wife, add to an impossibly romantic Scottish tower, mix together and out comes this beautiful and tender love story, written by an author who has a real flair for storytelling, and who quite simply makes a story come alive.

There’s always an air of trepidation when a favourite author brings out a new book, and a fear that it won’t live up to expectations. Not the case with Untying the Knot, in fact I think that Linda has surpassed herself with this one. Beautifully written from the opening page, the emotional depth of the characters, and the amount of love and care that has gone into the narrative, make it a joy to read.

If you haven’t read any of Linda’s books before – give yourself a treat and start with this one.


  1. I've downloaded Linda's latest book, and am loving it (up to Chapter 3)! Her reference to textiles, working with them/analogies to life are fascinating. Thanks for introducing Linda's wonderful books to me, my paperback and Kindle library are growing steadily.
