“A taut tale with a good leavening of humor.” -Birmingham Post

March 1943.

The Anglo-American campaign in North Africa is entering its final phase.

Rommel’s forces are being squeezed from both east and west, and must soon collapse.

Bound out of Oran, crammed with Afrika Korps Prisoners of Wars destined for the USA, the American transport Susquehanna falls prey to deadly torpedoes.

The U-boat commander’s fatal error has put 4,000 German lives at stake.

He offers a truce to any shipping that can come to their rescue.

But this is total war, and it could be a ruthless death-trap …

Back home in Britain nineteen year old Lobby Ludd is recovering from his voyage on the war-ship ‘Virtue’.

Torpedoed in battle, he is one of only a handful of survivors.

But now his leave is up, and his next mission is on-board fighter ship ‘Daemon’: a ship that many men believe is cursed.

Her undistinguished career has been punctuated by mishaps. The ‘Daemon’ is a pariah and nobody relishes serving in her, or seeing her in company.

But Lobby doesn’t have a choice.

And now ‘Daemon’ is being sent into the heart of battle, risking everything to come to the aid of the Susquehanna.

Will he beat the odds and survive again?

Or could this venture be his last…?

What if you Googled yourself & found something shocking?

Caroline Thompson Googles herself and discovers the shocking details of a past she doesn’t remember.

A group of privileged suburban moms amuse themselves by Googling everyone in town, digging up dirt to fuel thorny gossip. Caroline Thompson, devoted mother of two, sticks to the moral high ground and attempts to avoid these women. She’s relieved to hear her name appears only three times, citing her philanthropy. Despite being grateful that she has nothing to hide, a delayed pang of insecurity prods Caroline to Google her maiden name—which none of the others know.

The hits cascade like a tsunami. Caroline’s terrified by what she reads. An obituary for her twin sister, JD? That’s absurd. With every click, the revelations grow more alarming. They can’t be right. She’d know. Caroline is hurled into a state of paranoia—upending her blissful family life and marriage—desperate to prove these allegations false before someone discovers they’re true.

Be careful what you search for.

Jennie Bateman has again fallen in love with Thomas, her former husband, but Tasha, one of his children, is determined to destroy their relationship.

Jennie had done that herself a number of years earlier. In the midst of a manic episode, she had deserted Thomas and their two daughters, choosing, instead, a life of shameless debauchery.

Years later, when she again made contact with her family, she was a different person. Even so, they wanted nothing to do with her.

But time moves on. Circumstances change.

Tasha knows of Jennie’s earlier life and she has discovered that she still takes medication to control her behavior. She insists that even if Jennie takes the medication, she will ultimately relapse. Another manic episode, she insists, lies ahead. She reminds Jennie that if she were to relapse after marrying Thomas, she would ruin his life – a second time.

Shamed by Tasha, Jennie ponders tossing her medication, hoping to prove to them both that she can live without it. She fears she will fail the test. If she is unable to cope, then the same demons that destroyed her first marriage will rush back to thwart her second chance for happiness.

Albert, Prince Consort – Amazon
by Hector Bolitho
Rating: 3.9
Genre: Memoirs and Biographies
Price: $0.99 Save $3.00

“…a solid biography of Prince Albert’s accomplishments that will give the reader a better understanding of just who was the driving force behind much of what was achieved in the British Empire…” -Nyssa

It seems almost incredible now to read of the Divinity that did hedge a Prince Consort one hundred years ago, particularly when we compare Albert’s life and role with that of Prince Philip.

Indeed, it is difficult to guess which of the two would be more averse to the other’s speeches.

It may also occur to the reader that, whereas Prince Philip has acted as a modernizing and almost dashing influence on the Queen, Albert appears to have been a staid and restraining one on Victoria.

For it must be remembered that Queen Elizabeth had been Heiress Apparent for far longer than Victoria, who was, when she married, a gay young girl by the standards of her age.

Although it is fairly certain that Albert and Prince Philip would have disliked each other on sight, they have both been guided by the highest sense of duty.

It is this sense of duty, in spite of considerable hostility and dislike of the ‘foreign ways’, that make Albert’s life of such interest. If he had accomplished nothing else, his influence on the dealings with the Union States of America, just before his death, would ensure him an important place in British History.

In ‘Albert, Prince Consort’, Hector Bolitho explores the life and personality of Prince Albert, from his birth in Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, his marriage and restraining influence on Queen Victoria and his early death from typhoid.

Hector Bolitho is deservedly renowned for his Royal Biographies.
