I love receiving reviews.

Read what the readers have to say about The Fortune Seekers – Dan and Charlotte

hi Glennis,

  • It was a pleasure be asked pre read this wonderful story. You asked me for suggestions. My suggestion was to portray clearly, Dan and Charlotte’s actual physical love for each other, which in my opinion made the reality of their relationship, jump off the pages. And felt like I was there. I personally know the author, and am delighted that she is able to share her family history in this way. And I wish Glennis nothing but success after completing this, her first of many novels.

  • A great story. The struggle to break out in a time of conformity.
    A time of questioning when questions were scarcely asked.
    I’d be surprised if you didn’t insert yourself into the story.
    And maybe it’s your time to be the story.

A nudge like this may be all it takes.

Review by John N. Australia

( John is an adviser I called upon to check facts on certain religious historical conclusions.)

  • Hi Glennis
    I know it has taken me a while but I have finished reading the first two parts of your story of Wanderlust  – The Fortune Seekers.

I have to tell you that I have found it a great story. It defintely held my interest and I found that it was easy to get engaged and involved with the main characters inspite of them being my ancestors.

I felt the emotional aspect of Daniels earlier life was understandable considering life at that time in history and the huge impact and power religion and churches held during those times.

It must have been quite a challenge to portray Daniels emotions and thoughts in words. I have really enjoyed following his and Charlottes journey through their early life and look forward to reading how different life will be for both of them now that they are both on Australian soil and of course how their romance works out.

  • I gradually got drawn into the story and by the time the boys had their seminal experience in the pub where Dave got laid and Dan got drugged, I was hooked.

Some highlights: I loved your cameo appearance, ghosting through that Welsh graveyard! The descriptions of Dan’s life at sea and the gold mining section were quite convincing, obviously well researched. And, I have to admit, I shed a tear when Dan took Charlotte to the registry office to legalize their marriage.

In a nutshell. the book got better and better as time went on.

  • This book is not only a historical novel but also a history by itself and everyone who has roots from the British side must read this book. The book is very nicely written, has black & white photographs to embolden the story, and make you feel like you were traveling with them. I also learned a little piece of history, e.g. why it has anything to do with the word ‘bastards’ and I am grateful to the writer for clearing that as well. While reading this book, I couldn’t help but felt like I was watching those old Western movies when people were moving around and living a life of gypsies. It is definitely a very good book, easy but interesting reading and the highly recommended. The book is quite long though, so, prepare yourself for a long and enjoyable ride. I am not sure if it was based on true story but I genuinely felt that way.”

  • Loving your book. Love the characters and the historical background–loving to hate Charlotte’s cousin (husband)–what a tool he is! (haha) but then she wouldn’t have ended up with Dan… I’m up to the part where they are heading back to Paramatta to see her family. Looking forward to your next book “

  • The struggle to break out in a time of conformity. Questioning when questions were scarcely asked. Great story.

  • Hi Glennis. Shirley and I have both read your book and enjoyed the overall story and insites into your family history.

I think you are amazing to have taken up the challenge of writing which neither of us would ever dream of doing. Your research and overall developing of the various characters was great.

  • A true insight to what early life must have been like. An interesting read.
