Scars. Sometimes they’re visible. Sometimes they’re hidden deep within.

After years of living as a single parent, all Donna Adams longs for is someone to make her smile, to share hopes and dreams with, to keep her warm at night. 

Home from the army, Lewis is a changed man. Angry and consumed by grief, troubled by nightmares and flashbacks, his mind is worse now than ever. 

Megan Cooper hides her scars for fear of being rejected. Mary Marshall can’t always remember how she got hers.

If the past could be erased to make a better future, we’d all want that, wouldn’t we? But life is never that easy for the residents of The Mitchell Estate…

WRITTEN IN THE SCARS is the fourth book in The Estate Series but each one can be read as a standalone novel.


‘The minute I got this book I delved right in and I was not disappointed. Mel Sherratt has a wonderful way of reeling you in to her books. The Estate Series, including this one, is a story about real people, real life and real feeling. I was hooked from the start and literally had to force myself to stop so I had something to look forward to reading the next day. I devoured this book. I could have read it in a few hours easily as the stories and characters really got under my skin.’

‘Read this in one day, I picked it up intending just to start it, read a couple of chapters maybe, but I was hooked in right from the opening chapter. I have read the previous estate books & really enjoyed them. Mel Sherratt has a knack of writing really believable & likeable characters, & Written In The Scars, has great characters, you find yourself really routing for them. Good to see old familiar characters back too. This estate could be anywhere in the country, & the struggles & problems faced are all too real.’

‘What can I say about this latest piece of art that any of my fellow reviewers haven’t? Not much it seems, they have got it covered. Brilliant, moving, emotional, realistic. I felt like one of the people within the stories. You don’t have to start from book one you can read from any first and you get the same high quality through out, looking forward to reading number 5.’
