With Christmas rapidly approaching, if you’re scratching your head for gift ideas, I have several novels available that might make good presents.
Today’s suggestion: Children of the Folded Valley
Intended Readership: Adults.
Here is the blurb from the back of the book:
During a journey to visit his estranged sister, James Harper recalls his childhood growing up in a mysterious valley cut off from the outside world, as part of a cult called the Folded Valley Fellowship.
In this seemingly idyllic world, the charismatic Benjamin Smiley claimed to be protecting his followers from an impending nuclear apocalypse.
But the valley concealed a terrifying secret.
A secret that would change Smiley’s followers forever.
By far my most successful novel to date, Children of the Folded Valley has been very well reviewed.
Here is a sample of the many raves:
“I don’t usually leave reviews but I felt so strongly about encouraging people to read this fantastic book. It had me captured from start to finish. At one stage in the book I actually thought it was a true story.” – Paul, Amazon.
“The use of re-written religious doctrine to control, govern and frighten is particularly chilling… Full marks to Simon Dillon for this creative and highly readable novel.” – Around Robin, Amazon.
“Creepy and unnerving. Kept me gripped the whole way through.” – Lucyboo, Amazon.
“I couldn’t put it down.” – Bukky, Amazon.
“Really well written, well thought through, compassionate… Full of empathy.” – Over, Amazon.
“So well written, you could believe it was a memoir.” – Shelley, Amazon.
“A perturbing and very original story… The ending is magnificent.” – Joan, Goodreads.
