Full Circle - New Year Deal
It’s this time of the year to share gifts, and here is mine for you…
But WAIT… There’s more… when you comment below with your receipt, you get my first novel, “Things We Do For Love“, as a BONUS gift.
Full Circle unravels the age-old conundrum: hold fast to principles or embrace the brutal grip of survival?
When Russians invade Prague, a young medical student kills a soldier in self-defence. As authorities hunt for her, she is smuggled beyond The Iron Curtain and sneaks across borders to reach the USA, where, twenty years later, she shares her story of struggle and hope with her daughter.
Boston, 1989. Confronted by news of the Velvet Revolution, Ana collapses in the street. Returning home, she’s reminded of her past when her daughter, Yael, accuses her of being ignorant about politics.
Prague, 1968. Focused on her medical studies and disinterested in the political uprising, Ana’s fate is sealed when handsome, enigmatic libertarian Jan, her childhood friend, returns to her life. Drawn into the fight against oppression, Ana is warned against involvement by Helen, her mother, who, as a Holocaust survivor, knows the dire price of oppression.
As Soviet tanks roll into Prague, Ana and Jan find themselves on the frontlines, where, in one act, Ana’s life is destroyed. Now hunted by the government, her only hope of realising her dreams lies in escaping beyond the Iron Curtain.
Things We Do for Love
Families – can’t live without them…
… and sometimes can’t live with them.
THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE is a family saga that explores what a happy family means.
Daisy Bach, a therapist, has always been certain that she did not want to have children. Her childhood experiences with an overbearing and controlling mother, Verity, who tore the family apart, further cemented this decision. However, at the age of forty-five, Daisy finds herself reconsidering this choice.
Unfortunately, her decision to try and conceive is complicated by her mother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. With strained family relationships, Daisy faces the daunting task of caring for her elderly parents while also attempting to conceive.
As she navigates this challenging time, Daisy is forced to confront her deep-seated resentment towards Verity. This journey leads her to re-evaluate her beliefs about motherhood, forgiveness, and the true meaning of a “happy” family. Will Daisy find a way to reconcile with her past and make peace with her present? Only time will tell.
