In both ‘The Girl from Penthorpe Hill’ and ‘Contribution’ Carol Clayton writes about resilient women with honesty of emotion, be it sorrow or joy, and of meeting life’s challenges with positive outcomes and the main character emerging the stronger for it. Readers not only genuinely care about the characters but, in many instances, can also identify with them. The stories are intensely moving as the characters explore relationships, love, loss, separation, self-discovery and moving forward to experience life in abundance. Both novels are truly satisfying and enjoyable reads.

The Girl from Penthorpe Hill is a modern family saga and compassionate story of a young girl assuming adult responsibilities as she tries to keep her family together after the tragic loss of her popular father. 

 

Jasmine returns to her family home, Penthorpe Hill, in the beautiful English countryside, years later, and reunites with her father’s best friend.  On her road to success, Jasmine demonstrates that you can achieve anything with love, integrity, hard work and an open heart.

 

It is an intensely moving and delightful tale of self-discovery as Jasmine comes to terms with her past and all its challenges, and moves forward to embrace life in all its fullness.

Carol was born and raised in Northern England where she acquired her love of nature and the outdoors. Graduating from the University of Sunderland with a degree in Business Education she taught for eight years before starting her own business in interior design. After completing a creative writing course, which fuelled her passion for writing, she had several articles published in various magazines. 

 

She has had many adventures travelling the world with her photographer husband, collecting material for her debut novel 'The Girl from Penthorpe Hill', and the sequel ‘Contribution’.  While travelling through the Australian Outback, Carol completed and edited her first novel. She started the sequel when she lived in Costa Rica and then finished it in the United States. Carol now resides in the scenic Colorado Rockies with her husband where they both enjoy hiking in the beautiful forests and mountains. From here they started their own photography business and spend their summers participating in art shows, selling Dave's photography and Carol's books. Photographs, information and schedule of events can be found on their website http://www.dbmaesworldimages.com

 

When they are not  doing shows or travelling, they love spending as much time as possible with family and friends. Carol's next project will be to start writing her third novel, following on with the adventures of Poppy's eldest daughter, Karina.
