Clare Revell lives in a small town in England with her husband, whom she married in 1992, and her three children. Writing from a early childhood and encouraged by her teachers, she graduated from rewriting fairy stories through fanfiction to using her own original characters and enjoys writing an eclectic mix of romance, crime fiction and children's stories. When she's not writing, she's reading, sewing, keeping house or doing the many piles of laundry her children manage to make. She has been a Christian for more than half her life. She goes to Carey Baptist Church, where she is one of three registrars.

Delia Latham5 Stars Out Of 5Another winner from Clare Revell!October 20, 2014Delia LathamQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Adeline and Nate had me rooting for them from the very beginning. Author Clare Revell has created characters so lifelike I wanted to know them personally, to make them friends. This may well be my favorite Revell novel to date. Kudos to the author for a job VERY well done!
DoraNorth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Just when you think the book is winding down...October 16, 2012DoraNorth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is one of those books where you become so entrenched in the characters' lives, you'd like nothing better than to continue along with them after the book ends. Adeline Munroe would be a great friend to have in real life. Spunky, caring, and she fixes boo-boos. On dolls.
Don't you just love the unusual occupations the author chooses for her heroines? And Nate? Who wouldn't love a hero who takes in his niece to raise? There's a great cast of secondary characters as well, from Ben, Adeline's black and white Cavalier King Charles spaniel, to Vianne, Nate's niece who played integral roles in the story.
Being deaf doesn't impair Adeline in any way. She's actually blessed with an abundance of other gifts, like visions of the Herbalist killings before they happen. Nate doesn't see her as handicapped, but as the strong, independent, and beautiful heroine she is. If it weren't for the occasional reminder from Adeline to look at her so she could read lips, as a reader, you almost forget the fact that she is deaf.
Tuesday's Child is action-packed, and the suspense is quite intense. Just when you think the book's coming in for an ending, Ms. Revell slings another curve ball your way. Great job, Clare Revell! I'm looking forward to the next story in the series, Wednesday's Child.
Disclosure: I received this book from the author for a fair and honest review.
