Behind Blue Eyes
No one knows what it’s like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
And no one knows what it’s like
To be hated
To be faded to telling only lies
But my dreams they aren’t as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That’s never free
No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you
No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through
But my dreams they aren’t as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That’s never free
No one knows what it’s like
To be mistreated, to be defeated
Behind blue eyes
And no one knows how to say
That they’re sorry and don’t worry
I’m not telling lies
But my dreams they aren’t as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That’s never free
No one knows what it’s like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

REVIEW – Under Currents by Nora Roberts

Under Currents

Published July 9, 2019 by St. Martin’s Press


The past never forgets!

I thought this was another great read from Nora Roberts.

From the outside, everything looked perfect, but sometimes there are monsters where you’d least expect.

1998 -It’s two days before Christmas and Eliza Bigelow has just had a lovely lunch with friends. Eliza is happily married to Graham, the chief surgical resident of Mercy Hospital. She drives home thinking about her family’s upcoming annual ski trip. She has everything she could ever want. Her job is to look beautiful, take care of her husband, and raise her two children well.

It’s a perfect life.

Eliza pulls into the garage and notices that her husband, Graham’s car is already there. He’s in the kitchen and she greets him with a kiss. Eliza chatters on about her lunch, shopping, and her friend Jody.  “Do you think I give a damn about Jody?” His voice is calm, but Eliza knows that he’s anything but…

Fourteen-year-old, Zane and his younger sister, Britt are dropped off after school. They are excited about Christmas vacation. Zane and Britt tease each other good-naturedly as they make their way towards the house. But the second they open the door….they know. Zane tells Britt to go upstairs but she runs towards the noise instead. Zane sees his father heading towards Britt and does something he’s never done before.

And what comes next is horrifying.

“You’re nothing until I say you are. Everything you have, including the breath in your body, is because of me.“

After that horrible night, Zane starts keeping a journal. Every night he writes, detailing everything that happens in his life and in that house. He tells himself that one day he’d be strong enough and brave enough to stop pretending. He tries to hold on to his dreams.

But then comes another terrible night where things go from bad to worse quicker than anyone could’ve imagined.

That night EVERYTHING changes.

“Under Currents” is an interesting story told from many different perspectives. With a gripping plot and well-developed characters (as well as an awesome dog), I had a hard time putting this book down.

I wouldn’t classify this as a thriller though there were some suspenseful moments. I did guess a few things ahead of time but was still very interested in seeing how it all worked out.

The book is divided into four parts and takes place over two decades. I enjoy novels where I get to watch the characters grow. Nora Roberts has a knack for writing these kinds of stories.

At times this was an emotional and gut-wrenching read, but also heart-warming and uplifting.

An excellent domestic suspense novel about family, strength, cruelty, resilience and the power of love.



I’d like to thank St. Martin’s Press for providing me with an advanced copy of this novel. All opinions are my own.

Published December 20, 1995 by Grand Central Publishing


I loved this book!!!

Usually having read a book so long ago, I can’t remember much about it.  However, that is not the case with this book. I read it in 1999 when I was pregnant with my daughter, and it seems just like yesterday.

The main character,  Novalee Nation is a pregnant 17-year-old girl who is abandoned by her boyfriend in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart. Novalee is such a great character, so easy to love and root for.

This was such a unique and heartwarming read.  A gripping page-turner with so much heart!

This wonderful book has stayed with me all these years. I can’t wait to read it again.

Highly recommended!

Six Minutes by Petronella McGovern

Six Minutes

Published July 1, 2019 by Allen & Unwin


Goodreads Description:


How can a child disappear from under the care of four playgroup mums?

One Thursday morning, Lexie Parker dashes to the shop for biscuits, leaving Bella in the safe care of the other mums in the playgroup.

Six minutes later, Bella is gone.

Police and media descend on the tiny village of Merrigang on the edge of Canberra. Locals unite to search the dense bushland. But as the investigation continues, relationships start to fracture, online hate messages target Lexie, and the community is engulfed by fear.

Is Bella’s disappearance connected to the angry protests at Parliament House? What secrets are the parents hiding? And why does a local teacher keep a photo of Bella in his lounge-room?

What happened in those six minutes and where is Bella?


The clock is ticking…


My Thoughts:


I have this book on audio and can’t wait to start listening!  From the description this sounds like it’s going to be a very intense read.


Have you read this book?  Are you planning on reading it?
