Hello Mr MacLaverty. I'm happy to see that you look at this site on occasion. I
wanted to report that our book group (10 strong, been going for 14 years) read
Midwinter Break and discussed it last night. It's extremely rare for us all to agree
about a book, but we all found this one absolutely beautiful. We agreed that the
characters were sensitively drawn, sympathetic and believable. We really hope that
Gerry manages to stay off the booze, at least sufficiently for Stella to stay with
him.....maybe scope for a sequel?

Dear Kate Sweeney's book group,

Glad of the unanimity. And thank you for saying so

Hi Bernard,

just to let you know that I have just finished Midwinter Break and found it a brilliant
read(total page turner) I was hooked from the second paragraph.
I've started Cal but I saw Lamb a while back.
regarding Midwinter break if i could ask you the significance of the Ice? otherwise
looking forward to your next piece of work( hopefully we won't have to wait too long)

Dear James,

Thank you for the kind words. It would be a poorer book without the block of ice, I think. It's the shape of the inside of things, it's a thermometer as well as a talking point for Stella and Gerry.

I just wanted to say that I have been reading your short story collection and I think
'Walking the Dog' is possibly the best thing I have seen on the Troubles in Northern
Ireland. It is concise, moving and gets right to the heart of the madness of
sectarianism. Should be on the school curriculum.

Thanks for the kind contribution. I agree with you.

Midwinter Break was, to quote my book mad dad, a cracker!
I loved it, especially the way a different location acts to buffer the pasr and the present.
So much to think about,.
I love the way Stella and Gerry are forever having little naps. Mini-breaks are often an
exhausting business. Thanks ,

Thanks Laura
for taking the time to write. Little naps are a luxury after 'three score years and ten'

I’m a student on a creative writing MA. I read Midwinter Break in one sitting, staying up
until nearly 3am to finish it. Your writing is beautiful, so poignant. I empathised with both
characters. This is the first book I’ve read of yours, so I’m thrilled to be able to read
more. Thank you

Good luck, Susan, with the MA. And good luck with my fiction from the past.
