About the Author

K T Bowes was born to soldiering parents and moved many times during her childhood. She survived a high school which was more like a young offenders' institution and made it to university.

Attending a Welsh university to read English, taught by a Scotsman, K T Bowes achieved a very respectable degree but then allowed her life to go in a completely different direction, starting with law enforcement.

She once jumped out of a plane attached to a delicate sheet of silk because a friend asked her to and she married her husband after knowing him only a few weeks, because it seemed like a great idea.

Her family emigrated to New Zealand in 2006 on a one way ticket with only a suitcase each. They had no idea where they were going to live or work and it was exciting and terrifying. All 6 of them still live in the North Island although the small children are now grown ups with lives of their own.

K T Bowes loves horse riding but keeps falling off and breaking things, so will stick to running from now on. She paints commissioned artworks and loves American Folk Art, which means that much of her furniture is covered in paint and decorations.

More words is not better. I enjoyed reading the New Zealand references and customs because they are so different. But the book got off on tangents that were not pertinent. I read to the end just to find out what the bad guys wanted, and came up empty. If nearly 600 pages can't solve a mystery, it doesn't need solved. Hana could go on to new adventures in the next book, but this one should have concluded in this book. I don't think I'll be reading more.

Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite About Hana by KT Bowes is a women’s fiction novel chronicling the trials and tribulations of Hana Johal. The first installment of a three-book serial, continuing on to several other sequels, the reader is introduced to our heroine, a support assistant at a local New Zealand All Boys Christian school. Hana navigates life the best she can after the premature death of her husband, Vik. Just when she thinks she has a handle on it all, Logan Du Rose turns up at the school as the new English teacher. Almost instantly, the pair are infatuated with each other, each afraid to really act on their feelings. On top of all this, Hana seems to be the target of mysterious men who are certain she has something they want. Will Hana and Logan finally succumb to their longings, or will every complication thrown in their way cause irreparable harm to their budding relationship? Miss Bowes has a knack for drawing the reader back to old school women’s fiction. I would liken About Hana to the works of Fern Michaels, both in the technique and way she describes each seemingly mundane event in a person’s life. By saying this, I do not mean that About Hana is in any way boring. Bowes draws us in with a flawed character. I found myself hating her at some points, but also recognizing that I may have acted in the same irrational ways in the same situations. After this excellent beginning, I eagerly look forward to reading the next installment. About Hana by KT Bowes is not what I would call your easy beach read. It will force the reader to really use their comprehension skills. It was a breath of fresh air compared to some of the books out today.

This author just did a complete edit of the first ten chapters of this book, prompting me to rewrite my previous review. It now has a smooth flow without the side stories that took the reader out of the main thread of the story. The focus is on the main characters and we get frequent glimpses of Logan as he begins to garner Hana's interest. The first ten chapters are now more streamlined, tighter, focused. The character of Logan will totally hook you with his secretive, tortured soul and beautiful grey eyes. He proved to me far more beguiling than any other character in the story. For me, it turned out to be about Logan. His complex, dual, fascinating personality won my heart. By the end of the book, I accepted the fact that I had to know what the fate of Logan, Hana, and the Du Rose family would be, no matter how many books I had to read! This book is a very clean. Although there are clearly hints of sexual situations, they are never described. The main character, Hana, is a deeply Christian woman and often speaks about her faith, but the novel is not driven by a religious theme. It is the start to a fascinating family saga and once you are hooked, you have no choice but to follow it to its end. I highly recommend it.

It went on a bit to let you into the main character's life but was worth it.
