Synopsis

England, 1942. After three years of WWII, Britain is showing the scars. But in this darkest of days, three lives intertwine, changing their destinies and those of many more.

Dr Archibald McIndoe, a New Zealand plastic surgeon with unorthodox methods, is on a mission to treat and rehabilitate badly burned airmen – their bodies and souls. With the camaraderie and support of the Guinea Pig Club, his boys battle to overcome disfigurement, pain, and prejudice to learn to live again.

John ‘Mac’ Mackenzie of the US Air Force is aware of the odds. He has one chance in five of surviving the war. Flying bombing missions through hell and back, he’s fighting more than the Luftwaffe. Fear and doubt stalk him on the ground and in the air, and he’s torn between his duty and his conscience.

Shy, decent and sensible Stella Charlton’s future seems certain until war breaks out. As a new recruit to the WAAF, she meets an American pilot on New Year’s Eve. After just one dance, she falls head over heels for the handsome airman. But when he survives a crash, she realises her own battle has only just begun.

Based on a true story, "The Beauty Shop" is a moving tale of love, compassion, and determination against a backdrop of wartime tragedy.

Synopsis

Where Love Lives:The Inheritance (Wyoming Wildflowers, Book 6)

Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt Halderman looked at himself and didn’t like what he saw. Especially not after he ran out on that spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met. He didn’t run far, falling into conversation with a stranger in the pre-dawn stillness of a Wyoming truck stop. That conversation – along with seed money that mysteriously arrived just when he needed it – turned the course of Matt’s life.

Now he’s received a letter announcing that the stranger he’d met in that diner had been billionaire Harold Hopewell. Hopewell had traveled the world, encountering people and letting their stories touch him. In death, he is giving back, leaving an unusual will filled with life-altering bequests to the people he met along the way.

It turns out the recently departed billionaire isn’t done changing Matt’s life. This time with an inheritance that will allow Matt to go home to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for rodeo horses at the end of their lives.

Zoe Parisi hasn’t forgotten Matt Halderman or the night he walked out on her. Couldn’t even be called a one-night stand, since the man hadn’t stuck around for the whole night. She lost her head that night, but it’s been squarely back on her shoulders ever since. She’s a doctor now and is on track to take over an established practice in Knighton, Wyoming, the much-loved hometown of her grandparents.

She’d been sure when she decided to settle in Knighton that Matt would never return to the ranch where he grew up. But now, here he comes, waltzing back into town … looking just as good as ever and with a bunch of money.

Zoe wants nothing to do with Matt or his good looks … but his money’s a whole different matter. What does he need with this inheritance when he already has so much? She, on the other hand, knows exactly how to use those funds to make desperately needed improvements to medical care for all the people around Knighton.

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women..

View full details

Synopsis

Felix receives from his late father an unusual inheritance - a laboratory of forensic analysis and preparation of the dead, and he is going to become a professional thanatoscopyst to take the business over. But at the height of his teenage years, he discovers that his inheritance is more than a mere undertaking - and includes his own extrasensory abilities, which begin to surface amidst the universe of working with the corpses. Soon he realizes that each job will be an unexpected and unusual challenge - and that breaking the rules left by his father can bring dangerous and completely unforeseen consequences...

In this first tale, Felix will come across the first really challenging work in the laboratory, the result of a brutal car accident; it is during this work that he crosses the path of beautiful and mysterious Evelyne, for whom Felix suddenly falls in love and who will bring up his hitherto unknown skills.

"The Thanatoscopyst" is a set of three short stories, which make up a prelude to the author’s next two novels: "Phaenomena" and "Felix Nähener, Thanatoscopyst".

The three stories make a brief introduction to characters from "Phaenomena", whose protagonist will be another mysterious being. "Felix Nähener, Tanatoscopista", as the title indicates, will portray the subsequent events in the life of the protagonist himself.
