Tales from the dining room table
‘Few writers are so adept at capturing the emotions of their characters.’ Book Viral
Smash all the Windows was released April 2018. And now the first reviews are in!
You write a book about something you’re passionate about and hope that it will resonate with others, but you never really know how readers will react to it…
‘This book was simply stunning – a portrait of grief and loss with immense emotional depth.’ ~ Anne Williams, Being Anne
‘Jane Davis is one of those authors whose books all have an entirely different feeling to each other, Smash All The Windows being another example of what ties them all together: the brilliant depiction of the characters, whatever their age, circumstance or time period.’ ~ Cleopatra Loves Books, Top 500 reviewer.
‘This fictional disaster echoes with real emotions. I read it twice and believed every word.’ ~ J J Marsh, Author
‘What a book! I found it incredibly hard to put down.’ ~ Tara Greaves
‘With a full cast of true-to-life Londoners and a fascinating and timely premise, Davis casts a spell over her readers.’ ~ Kendra Olson
‘This is a stunning book, written by an author so skilled at both the big and little, the near and far, the personal and the collective, that you’ll walk away from the conclusion feeling as if you’ve truly been on a journey.’ ~ Lorraine Devon Wilke, Author
‘Believe me when I say I am so engrossed that the building could fall down around me and I would not look up from my book!’ ~ Beth Allen, US
My grateful thanks to my advance readers and everyone who has posted a review, emailed me, or commented on social media about how much they are enjoying my novel. It really does make a huge difference!
