I’ve had a busy few weeks not only editing and polishing my latest book, The Family Divided, but also liaising with a designer over new covers for the earlier three books. And here they are!! Blast of a trumpet, someone please . . . . 😛
If I say so myself, I think they’re beautiful – all the backgrounds are shots of Guernsey and this will be the theme from now on. In fact I’m already mapping out Book 5, Echoes of Time.
And here’s the brief synopsis of Book 4, The Family Divided:
One family, divided by death – and money
Andy Batiste, at loggerheads with his degenerate cousin, seeks to discover the truth of his family history. Why was his pregnant grandmother forced to flee to France? What really happened to her husband during the German Occupation, sixty years ago? Who accused Edmund, the elder son and Batiste heir, of being an informer? Was he really a traitor – and who murdered him?
With Edmund’s brother Harold now head of the family, enjoying the wealth which ought to have come to Andy’s father, the family is forever divided. Andy yearns to clear Edmund’s name and restore his father to his rightful inheritance.
Into the conflict comes Charlotte Townsend, newly divorced, lonely and struggling with writer’s block and the consuming threat of impending loss. She returns for healing at Guernsey’s natural health centre, La Folie, and becomes involved in Andy’s family affairs.
Together they embark on a hunt for the truth…
