A WOMAN with strong ties to the Isle of Wight has had her first book published.

Sarah Lawton's All the Little Things has received rave reviews online since its release date on March 26.

Available via WHSmith, Waterstones, Forbes and Amazon, the book is a taut and gripping psychological thriller about toxic families, secrets and life-or-death decisions.

Good Reads, Coy Caterpillar and the Waterstones website rate the book between 4.3 out of five and a full five stars.

Sarah said: "As a little girl, the first thing I did when we moved back to Ryde from Shanklin was join the library.

"I always hoped one day I’d be able to write a book other people could find at the library, and I’m so happy I can now say I did — It only took me thirty odd years!”

Sarah is now planning her second novel, which she is hoping to set on the Isle of Wight.

All the Little Things can be purchased from a number of outlets, with the paperback edition priced from £6.99 and Kindle retailing at £1.99.

It can be ordered from Waterstones, Amazon, WHSmith and Forbes.
