The Frowning Madonna is an entertaining romp through British history — with a touch of mythology—that both teaches and delights. This is easily one of the most entertaining books I have read this year! — Richard T. Ryan


A masterful twist on the classic reincarnation theme that provides an exciting, insightful and poignant romp through history. John Hazen, author.


It's never a good idea to make a goddess angry, but it can make for a fabulous story! Spinning through England's history, the Frowning Madonna is a twisting quest full of friendship, love, and shifting allegiances that will grip you right up to the exciting end.  Nola Nash, author of The Crescent City Series and Traveler


A magical journey across English history…  

The author has out done herself this time, whereas her previous books have transported you to another single time period in history, this story covers Roman Britain to the seventies, and all kings and queens in between.

Not only do we have the excellent detailed research making the reader feel they are living the characters life, be it a washer woman or lord, but we have a magical thread linking all the events to keep the story moving.

Our three characters not only change with the times but grow and develop as they face their task.

Well written, impressive historical knowledge, combined with a fast-paced intriguing story.

Recommended equally for romance and history lovers alike, or people who simply enjoy a good read. Morton R. Leader, author of History is a Lie. 


Roman goddess. Immortal Adonis. Reincarnated Souls. A battle that spans several lifetimes to recapture the golden orb and bring it back to its rightful owner. Lalia will not stop, even if it takes a hundred lifetimes.

–Rebecca Rosenberg, award-winning author CHAMPAGNE WIDOWS

  1. Highly recommended!
    I enjoyed reading this book. Because of a curse, the 2 women keep reincarnating and the man has eternal life, every time a time frame is described. Just when you think, now it's the same again, the element of love is added and the story gets interesting again.
