In October, we went on an adventure with Matilda Windsor, how was her homecoming? Let’s find out…
Review by ChaosHappinessBookMama, “A magical and harsh story of reality – decades in an asylum, grasping reality after years of pretending. Beautiful and well done.”
Review by Tomes and Tales, “Matilda Windsor is Coming Home is a thought-provoking novel with important insights into asylum life and the people on the fringes of society who go unseen and unheard. Absorbing and heartbreaking, the author’s professional experience plays a huge role in her approach to a sensitive topic that warrants required discussions.”
Review by emmabBooks, “5*s for this “fiction to care about” – and reading it I really cared about Matty and became involved with Henry. The further I got into the book, the more I hoped all would turn out happily at the end.”
Review by twilight_reader (IG), “The author does an incredible job at twisting and turning your emotions in different directions. I smiled, I laughed but also wanted to sob at the same time.”
Bonnie Reads And Writes showcased the book on her stop, go check it out.
Review by Ginger Book Geek, “Matilda has her quirks but ultimately she is a lovely person, who has ended up in an asylum through no fault of her own. I kept wanting to jump inside the pages of the book to give Matilda a hug and to remonstrate with those who had treated her like an ‘inconvenience’”
Review by Donna’s Interviews, Reviews and Giveaways (FB) “A poignant, heartbreaking at times, but overall uplifting read.”
Review by Sue Loves to Read, “This was an interesting read. Good story and characters. I did enjoy this book. This was very well written.”
Review by Over the Rainbow Book Blog, “Matilda Windsor is coming home is a beautiful, absorbing, heart breaking read that will definitely be staying with me.”
Review by Pauline Render, “I found this book to be a beautiful story of love and determination but also a sadly poignant reminder of the past. I loved the gentle humour of Matty and really felt for Henry as his whole life has revolved around the loss of his sister.”
Review by Laughter and Thunderstorms, “I really liked how well rounded the book become as we read through 3 perspectives and each narrative gave a unique element to the book. It also showed how some stigmas around mental health haven’t changed much in all this time.”
And that is well and truly a wrap!
Thank you ever so much to everyone who has taken part in the tour!
Until the next adventure xxx
