A recommendation – Patricia Chubb’s Story, The Girl from the Sea

I don’t usually do this, because there is so much excellent stuff out there, If I started posting about the stuff I like on other people’s blogs, I will never write anything of my own.

However, today I am making a rare exception.

A Blogger who I have followed for a while, called Patricia Chubb, is writing a story called The Girl from the Sea and she is posting it on her blog, Get Writing.

I have really been enjoying her story. She has marketed it as a Children’s fiction, but I think it has broader appeal than that. I am certainly enjoying it.

I recommend, if you like old-style fiction stories, you take a look at it. It reminds me a little bit of ‘Treasure Island’.

Here is the link.
