About Darlene Jones

Many years ago a young girl left the safety of Canada for adventure in Africa. This was in a generation when young girls didn’t go anywhere on their own and certainly not to the “the dark continent.”

I had to adapt to the climate, the culture, the language, and above all time travel, for most Malians lived the way they always had. Modern conveniences consisted of basic items such as kerosene lanterns and little else. It was the plight of Malians that inspired me to begin writing.

Now that the Em and Yves series is complete, I’ve found that I’m hooked on writing and have moved on to other genres.

Review by: Melanie Robertson-King on Sep. 26, 2012 :
This is the third novel by Darlene Jones. Following in the footsteps of Embattled and Empowered.

From page 1, I found myself drawn into the story, and immediately sympathized with Abby who was receiving messages from an alien being.

Throughout the novel, there were a number of unexpected plot twists which led to a very satisfying read.

Now I need to go back and read Darlene's first two novels.

Review by: Anneli Purchase on Sep. 16, 2012 :
As I read Embraced, I identified with the character of Abby. What would I do if I were Abby and heard annoying clickings in my teeth? I’d be extremely worried that something was wrong with me. What if the sounds were like a code being tapped out? I’d wonder if I was losing my mind. But what if it turned out that they really were messages from some supreme being “up there”? It sure isn’t something I’d tell anyone about. They’d think I was crazy.
Abby is in a real dilemma. And then things get worse for her. She meets the most beautiful man she’s ever seen in her life. He says he loves her, but he betrays her. Or does he? He’s in and out of her life. He asks her if she thinks she’s lived before. He visits without seeming to have to open a door – simply appears. Is he real? She wants him to go away so she can get her sanity back, but can’t bear it when he’s gone from her life.
And the messages? They tell her to write letters to fix things in the world. And it works! But it’s all so overwhelming for her.
Embraced will keep you turning pages to find out how Abby will deal with the bizarre things going on in her life. The author engages and entertains the reader from start to finish. Expertly written and thoroughly enjoyable.
