Review of A Talent for Humanity and Duxhurst – Surrey’s Lost Village

Received from Suzanne Harrison, Reigate:

“I read Ros Black’s book and was as intrigued as the author about the incredible life of Lady Henry Somerset and the village she created for women with alcohol problems, and disadvantaged children. Her book Duxhurst is even better and gives a real insight into the day to day life of a rehabiliative community, which provides surrogate mothers for vulnerable children also placed in the village for care.

I am awaiting with eager anticipation for a third book.”

Thanks for this Suzanne. Third book currently being planned …
