Ayrshire author’s holiday book is a tapestry of travel tales

A Prestwick writer hopes her first novel about her stories from around the world will fill a void of lack of public holidays for many this year.

Margaret L Moore, 59, wrote “From Sri Lanka with Love: A Tapestry Full of Travel Stories” about a trip to Sri Lanka in 2017 with husband Douglas.

Margaret has flown all over the world and has visited many countries including Iceland, America, India, Hong Kong, Norway, Spain, Italy, London, Madeira, South Africa, Canada, Austria and Australia, with which she created a mosaic of vacation memories in her Book.

Margaret said, “It’s great (and a relief!) To see it out now.

“And because of the strange time we’re going through with COVID, it happened earlier than I expected.

“I had more time to devote myself to the task than I would have otherwise.

“Rereading drafts and proving the book during the Lockdown episodes brought me fond vacation memories at a time when scheduled holidays were canceled or postponed.

“I hope readers will feel as though they are on vacation with me as they read. Travel while we are vacationing in Sri Lanka telling stories from around the world.

“Perhaps we will fill a void created by the lack of vacation in this unfamiliar time in which we live. And maybe even allow future vacations to be planned after reading our experiences! “
