The Dangers of Family Secrets

Secrets in a family are like moths in cashmere...

They dig themselves in and eat their way out...

Freya is a genealogist, but has never paid as much attention to her own family.

When her marriage starts to collapse and her grown-up daughters seem more distant than ever, Freya's reckless abandon startles everyone, and long-hidden secrets begin to emerge.

The Soulmate

A novel about love, loss and starting again.

Widower Henry Drummond is marking time, drifting towards retirement, until he accidentally saves a life.

His daughter Maddie is at a wedding with the love of her life.

But he is the groom and she is not the bride.

They both decide they need to change their lives, preferably with a soulmate by their sides.

But as Henry's mother tells him, 'Love is a complicated business and it is not for the easily discouraged.'

Strange encounters, humiliations and excitements come along and romance keeps eluding them. Soon family crises get in the way.

But their quest has taken on a life of its own, with surprising consequences for all concerned.
