Shelley Weiner reviews ‘Ignoring Gravity’

“This contemporary tale of sisterhood and identity is immediately engrossing. Sandra Danby writes with great empathy and wit.”
Shelley Weiner, author of ‘The Audacious Mendacity of Lily Green’

Shelley Weiner was my creative writing teacher for two years when I studied at Birkbeck College, University of London. So this review means a lot. In fact, I’d written an early draft of Ignoring Gravity, when it was provisionally called Finding Rose, before I studied with Shelley. So, until receiving a proof copy of the manuscript this year she had never heard of Rose Haldane.
Regular readers may remember a while ago I wrote about Tiara, the novel I haven’t finished writing. Tiara was written on that course at Birkbeck. Shelley will have forgotten about it, but if she clicks here she may recall my melodramatic opening page! Shelley Weiner
