About Helen Herbert

Although I wrote my first novel at the age of 13 and have been writing, in one way or another most of my life, I started writing fiction seriously after I retired. I have published three e books, both novels set in New Zealand, and have self-published print copies of 'A Year of Change' and 'There and Beyond'.
I live in Wanaka in the South Island, one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand, and am currently writing a Biography of a remarkable New Zealand woman, only 38 years old, who opened a whisky distillery a year ago.

Review by: Maree Erkkila on Nov. 01, 2015 :
Another great read by this talented author. 'A Year of Change' is a believable, well written story with endearing characters. I doubt anyone could read this book without being able to relate to the personalities and/or personal journeys of the characters. For kiwis, the references to favourite foods, well known streets, shops and such, sets a realistic scene in which to loose yourself, there amongst your new found neighbours in Redfern Lane. I finished the book in half a day, couldn't put it down.

..added note, if you were wondering why I had time to read and review on the day of purchase, I read a friend's copy and then wanted to have my own copy. So I had read it prior to purchase :-)

I loved reading this book because I came to care about the characters and their lives. Anyone reading 'A Year of Change' will, I'm sure, see characteristics of people they know and understand some of the behaviors and motivations. 'A Year of Change' is exceptionally well-written and crafted to appeal to people who enjoy reading and appreciate the craft of writing. It's also a wonderfully relaxing read and fabulous for taking on holiday. Relax, enjoy, have a glass of wine...and wonder about your own 'year of change'...if you haven't had one yet, you will have one soon. Highly recommended, DO buy now.

Review by Lorraine Scott
This book is a great read! The author demonstrates her real awareness of people's variable behaviours from different walks of life. The characters in the book really came to life for me and I found myself wishing I lived in a similar kind of street. I loved the way goodwill and kindness countered negative forces. I found myself to be moved by the interaction between some of the characters and was keenly interested to discover the eventual outcome as the story unfolded.

I found this tale to be a very satisfying and delightful experience. A very well written tale of everyday New Zealand lives and interactions. I enjoyed the year and related to the wonderful way that peoples lives can change and the joy and rewards that can come from human kindness. Well worth a read especially if you are a New Zealander.
