I am very pleased to announce the release of my new book, Swallowfields.
Inheriting an old house from an aunt she barely knew seems like the stroke of luck that Hannah badly needs. But Swallowfields has a dark history and Hannah is soon to discover disturbing family secrets that have remained hidden for years and now seem destined to tear her world apart.
Swallowfields is a story of tragedy, loss, loyalty and lies and of how one man’s evil has percolated through the generations, to leave an indelible stain on the present.
Already, Swallowfields is receiving five star ratings from Goodreads members, with comments such as:
“ I loved it Beverley!
What an original plot and terrific characters. The scene where Hannah was surrounded by wrapping paper (don't want to spoil it for anyone) had me in tears.
One of the best books I've read this year! Thank You!”

“… Through a complex network of deceit and lies, we find out how one person covering up to protect another can create a web of intrigue which throws a veil of obscurity over a child’s life. It’s wonderful to be there as lifting that veil unfolds a new future for Hannah.
This is longer than Beverley Carter’s earlier novellas and therefore has the possibility for delving deeper into the characters’ lives. There were still areas I would have liked more detail on – I’m just a nosy person! The author has a lovely accessible writing style and always uses it to tell a great story. This is a really good mystery tale and I enjoyed reading it very much!”
