Now out, my third novel The Forgotten Song. Set in Crete during the years of the Junta and the present day the book has been described by bestselling novelist Patricia Wilson as ‘An entirely captivating tale from cover to cover.’
Musician Phoebe’s life is falling apart and her marriage and career in tatters. A longing in her heart left by the absence of the father she has never known has brought her to rock bottom. Following in her mother’s footsteps, can a visit to the island of Crete help rekindle her love for life and music?
‘The Forgotten Song’, the new novel by Richard Clark, is available in paperback (£6.99) and for Kindle (.99p) from Amazon stores worldwide.
Richard Clark’s new novel The Forgotten Song is due out on 1 February 2021. Mega-bestselling author Patricia Wilson said of the new book:
‘Another extraordinary story by Richard Clark. As ‘The Forgotten Song’ unfolds, the author takes us on an emotional journey of courage, and love. Greek history comes to life with the troubled times of the Seventies. As always, the author takes us to Crete with such powerful descriptions it’s easy to visualise the country and live the story. ‘An entirely captivating tale from cover to cover.’
Out today in both Kindle and paperback formats. Return to Turtle Beach is the new novel from Richard Clark, author of The Lost Lyra.
Following the break-up of her parents’ marriage, a young girl is forced to leave the island of her birth. Returning to Crete for her father’s funeral she discovers feelings she thought she had lost. An unexpected discovery in an olive grove takes her on a journey that will change her life forever.
An extract from my new novel Return to Turtle Beach (out this spring).
‘Taking Popi by the hand he led her towards a roadside fountain which pooled into a stream. Here some steps led up to a glade in the shade of the forest trees. Beneath a waterfall which fell from the mountainside a small stone chapel stood, outside of which the tables and chairs of an outdoor taverna were spread. In the stream which ran through the taverna, watermelons sat cooling in the mountain waters and in the shade of the hillside cauldrons of food bubbled on open fires.’
Richard debut novel released in February 2019 quickly reached No1 in the Amazon Greek Travel charts where it dominated for more than 2 months.
Praise for The Lost Lyra
‘This book was so enjoyable and having some familiarity with Crete helped a little but the book is so addictive you are journeyed through the beautiful island and cannot fail to feel the magic. I always say Crete is like going to heaven without having to die first, read this wonderful book and you will understand exactly what I mean.’ Monica on Amazon
You cannot imagine to what depths your book reached into my inner being. What joy and feelings of yearning to be present to hear the music of the lyra. Thank you for a totally satisfying book. Alexandra on Amazon
