Whisked off to Farthinggale Manor by the possessive Tony Tatterton, Annie pines for her lost family, but especially for Luke, her half- brother – friend of her childhood, her fantasy prince, her loving confidante. Without the warm glow of his love, Annie is lost in the shadows of despair. And when she discovers Troy's cottage hidden in Farthinggale's woods, the mystery of her past deepens. But even as she yearns to see Luke again, her hopes and dreams are darkened by the sinister Casteel spell... treacherous, powerful and evil!

Fifteen years ago, Bettina May's life veered off course in one disastrous night. Still reeling from the shock of losing everything she thought was hers, Bettina opens a bakery in a village and throws herself into the comfort of breadmaking.

If I Fall, If I Die
Will has never been to the outside,
at least not since he can remember.
And he has certainly never got
to know anyone other than his
mother, a fiercely loving yet wildly
eccentric agoraphobe who drowns
in panic at the thought of opening
the front door. Soon the confines of
Will's world close in on him. Despite
his mother's protests, he ventures
outside, clad in a protective helmet,
and braces himself for danger. He
eventually meets and befriends
Jonah, a quiet boy who introduces
him to skateboarding, and finds
his fears fading and his body
hardening with each new bump,
scrape and fall. But life quickly gets
complicated when a local boy goes missing, and Will and Jonah embark upon an extraordinary adventure...
“...powerful and page-turning...” SUNDAY BUSINESS POST “An astonishing piece of work.” PHILIPP MEYER
