Breaker – Book Review

Gripping from the first page, Annemarie Allan’s latest offering is likely to be a big hit with her 8-12 target audience, especially those from East Lothian.

We all love to read about our local environment and this one is set in North Berwick. Like the award winning Hox, it is based on scientific developments yet to come – and no doubt with a little technical help from Anne’s biologist husband – which allows Anne to explore her own imagination.

Environmental disaster, friendships and loyalty, excitement and integrity, all these are lightly touched upon through a page-turning plot that catches hold of 12 year old twins Beth and Tom when they move to their new home by the sea.

This second published novel is written with increasing confidence and style. For more insights into Anne’s writing, see our earlier interview.

Breaker is available from Amazon here

Suse Coon started life training to be an architect but ended up as a fashion buyer then civil servant. After some time out to bring up her family of three, she returned to what had been a hobby and entered the field of freelance journalism. After becoming regional correspondent, then editor of the orienteering magazine CompassSport, she formed Pages Editorial & Publishing Services. In this guise, West Lothian Life was launched, while Suse maintained a level of freelancing and wrote the award winning children's novel Richard's Castle. In 1999, Suse bought over CompassSport and found her time taken up pretty well exclusively with the two magazines. In 2004, West Lothian Life was expanded to form Lothian Life, however, the workload was too great. In 2006, CompassSport was sold and Suse concentrated on the web version of Lothian Life.
