The Staircase Girls
The Secret Lives, Heartaches And Joy Of The Cambridge ’Bedders’
Dear Fang, With Love
Vera is seventeen – the same age her parents were when, blindingly in love, they decided to have a baby. Now in their thirties and long since separated, “seventeen” is already a lifetime ago. So when Vera suffers a terrifying psychotic break, they scramble to try and comprehend what has happened to their wild-hearted, inimitable daughter. Vera’s father Lucas takes her to Lithuania, his grandmother’s homeland, for the summer. Here, in the city of Vilnius, Lucas hopes to save Vera from the sorrow of her diagnosis. Meanwhile, Vera pours her heart out in letters to her boyfriend, Fang. She is searching for answers of her own. Why did Lucas abandon her as a baby? What really happened the night of her breakdown? And who can she trust with the truth?
All Through The Night
For sixteen-year-old Joyce, who lived in one of the poorest streets in Cambridge, the college building represented privilege, wealth, a life she’d never live. As a “bedder”, Joyce would be making the beds of the male students, sweeping floors and dusting desks. Bedders like Nance, Maud, Rose, and Audrey endured the Second World War. Their friendships gave them strength, and their work gave them happiness – and a lasting connection with their charges, some of whom would go on to run the country.
The JT Ellington Series
“It’s quite simple, Mr Ellington. When you find Fowler, just ask where we can find the truth.” With these words, private detective JT Ellington embarks on a seemingly simple case of tracking down a local GP with a dubious reputation and retrieving a set of stolen documents from him. For Ellington, however, things are rarely straightforward. Dr Fowler is hiding a terrible secret – and when he is gunned down outside a Bristol pub, his dying words send JT in pursuit of a truth more disturbing and deadly than he could possibly have imagined.
