Honey, these are not your momma’s grannies…

When Lillian Summer Fairview’s husband up and dies on her, it leaves the last living member of the most prestigious family in Summer Shoals, Georgia, in a hot mess. While Lil was busy being a proper Southern lady, Harlan squandered dang near the whole family fortune on lottery tickets. To keep her financial skeletons in the closet and give him a decent burial, Lil made a deal that has now landed her in prison.

Desperate to keep her troubles a secret and the family estate from falling down while she pays her debt to society, Lil entrusts Summer Haven’s care to her best friend, Maggie, who recruits two more over-fifty ladies to live at Summer Haven and help keep it afloat.

But when Maggie discovers that Lil’s restitution is ten times the amount she “borrowed” from the federal government, she’s convinced Lil has taken the fall for someone else’s crime. And these gals will use every trick in their little-old-lady bags to prove it.

“I loved it from beginning to end and want to read more of this fantastic author!!!” -Jessica S.

C17th England.

Julia Pallister, daughter of Sotherleigh, was born in 1641 and unknowingly heir to the only remaining gown of Elizabeth I’s exquisite wardrobe.

This pearl-encrusted gift to Julia’s grandmother, Katherine, represented the staunchly royalist stance which bound together the family, generation after generation.

But in light of the tyranny of Oliver Cromwell’s armies, all the Pallisters shared a courage beyond measure, to fight for their king, their home and their freedom.

Three indomitable women band together to preserve their future:

Proud Katherine, old now, but still determined to fight,

The gentle Anne, who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve Sotherleigh for her children,

And Julia, young, wilful and turbulent.

They are determined that one day Julia, in the tradition of the Pallister women, would wear the historic pearl dress for her wedding.

The man she had always loved was her childhood friend, Christopher Wren. The man to whom fate directed her was one of the hated enemy…

But Julia, torn between these two loves, surviving the Puritan regime, the plague, the Great Fire of London, despairs at the memory of the legacy of the pearl encrusted gown.

Will she be able to protect and even wear the prized heirloom?

Charlotte in Love

“This biography was a good introduction, not only into Charlotte’s life but also her romantic relationship.” -Lauralee

‘This is a love story about a woman who wrote some of the most moving and enduring love stories in the world’s literature.’

The romantic author Charlotte Brontë was consumed by love. To show the desire for true love, she once said, a person should even be willing to be kicked by a horse.

Using her literature and correspondence, and the words of her friend and biographer Elizabeth Gaskell, Brian Wilks portrays Charlotte as a romantic waiting for her Mr Right. The man she chose, after spurning three men’s proposals, was Arthur Nicholls, a curate in her village where her father was parish priest. They married in 1854.

With a critical and scholarly eye, Wilks documents Charlotte as a woman prone to depression and isolation, and who often wrote her own life experiences into her prose.

She had suffered the unrequited love of her teacher, Heger, when she had studied in Belgium, and was devastated by the death of her brother and sisters from consumption. Her father was unwell and she longed to escape the gloom of Haworth in Yorkshire.

Each letter lays bare her doubts, and as an illumination of the times it is perhaps paralleled only by other women authors, including her sister Emily. To read a woman’s private thoughts and feelings is an emotional experience for the contemporary reader.

At the same time, and without any recourse to his letters or writing, we have as complete and as sympathetic a portrait of Arthur Nicholls as we can get. He was determined to marry Charlotte, even resigning as curate.

‘Charlotte in Love’ goes beyond mere biography, instead acting as a love story which was so brief in its conclusion, Charlotte dying within a year of her marriage to Arthur. It is, writes Wilks, ‘the story of Charlotte’s growing understanding of the nature of human love and devotion as she experienced them, and of a relationship that grew from acquaintanceship to friendship, to admiration and respect, through sympathy and understanding to love.’

1312, A knight destined to rule…

Jareth Tremaine, the first Duke of Dover, has seen how he’s remembered in history books—either a saint who rules his lands with justice or a religious extremist whose harsh treatment of the church nearly has him executed. But what history doesn’t disclose is that he’s essential to the world’s survival. After being wounded by ancient Huns using 21st century weapons, a girl is brought to aid his recovery—a girl who would become his duchess and the key to the future of Dover’s Amalgam.

A 21st century girl whose future has not been written…

Elizabet Blackwell isn’t surprised by wormholes. What shocks her is the multi-faceted personality of the titled knight. Sir Jareth is a nobleman, translator, surgeon—and he’s intent on locating and protecting a host. The host, she discovers, is a boy who practically lives in her backyard 700 years into Jareth’s future.

The re-scripting of history for the survival of nature’s attack on mankind…

Together they embark on their life’s journey and discover that they must protect each other even as they prepare the host for his destiny. Their quest must be to ensure the boy is secure and hidden from the evil forces who seek to exploit the power he contains.
