Reviews for the Book

About the Author: Lilly Adam

Lilly Adam, wife, mother, and grandmother. I was born in London where I spent my early childhood. From a young age, I always had a passion for reading, writing stories, and poetry. With maturity my interest in history blossomed, especially for the Victorian era; it was a period in history that saw so much change and an abundance of new and life-changing inventions and laws, making it such an interesting era to study. Having a lifelong ambition to become an author, it was after a long pause whilst raising my family in Oxfordshire, that I finally found the time and brain space to put pen to paper and begin. My debut novel, May of Ashley Green was published in February 2017. I have since published a further ten novels and continue to write. Turning my passion into a fulfilling career as a professional author has been one of my greatest life achievements.
