Clarence Smyth is a psychically gifted little boy born in London at the dawn of the 20th Century. He has an extraordinary life meeting and influencing many famous and some infamous people of that era. This book is a rewrite of the classic The Boy Who Saw True, which were actual diaries of a Victorian boy (author unknown).Anyone familiar with that book will remember being frustrated at only reading a part of his story. Although this is set in a slightly later period, it completes the story and weaves in other intrigues as well as Clarence being “watched” because of some of the accurate predictions he makes. There is a dark element to Clarence’s story, but it is told with insight and humour on his part, as we see Clarence go from being a young boy to a man.The Diaries of a Gifted Edwardian Boy is for all ages from young adult to the mature.It is an interesting, amusing and enjoyable read.

Bronwyn J Taylor is a New Zealander who now resides in Australia with her partner Peter. Her four children and five grandchildren all live close by. After previous careers as a graphic artist, set/costume designer and design tutor Bronwyn who is also a qualified Counselor has now turned her creativity towards writing.

    A delightfull read. I was dissappointed when I finished it Clarence is such a interesting boy i have missed him and his humour and his story telling. I would totally recommend it and i will look forward to reading the next book.

  • Leighton Taylor

    Great read, very interesting story would like to see more from this Author. Looking forward to a sequel!

  • Cindy Harrison

    Streets ahead of most fictional writers, a blend of wit, careful character mixing and the kind of detail that brings the past to life. Taylor excels in her atmospheric portrayal of early England. The dialogue sparkles with a life of its own and her historical research is unrivalled. A book you won't want to put down. Bring on the sequel!

  • Jean Matthews

    I have really enjoyed reading this interesting book, it certainly kept me wanting to know what happens next to this little Edwardian specially gifted boy. I look forward to reading its sequel when he has become an adult and how his life transpires (a glimpse of which is towards the end of this first book). I think the author herself has cleverly portrayed the story.

  • Tim O’Donnell

    I picked up this book and ending up not being able to put it down as I wanted to know what was installed for this young boy. How the story was interwoven with actual historical characters was brilliant and not forced. Growing up with the boy was very moving and now I can’t wait for the sequel. Pp

  • Anne Corris

    I just finished this book - and I loved it! I’m really looking forward to the next one. Well written, entertaining and interesting. Who knew all those famous figures lived at the same time? The spirit world is a very interesting place.

  • Claire B

    I really enjoyed this compelling story with its it's well penned and unique insight into the psychic world of the main character. Looking forward to more from this author.

  • Nance Cowper

    A talented author who has a gift for creating a compelling character who comes alive and will remain memorable for all who read his story.
