Title Collection

I guess it's an OCD attack, but it occured to me that daughters have been in the spotlight of books, lately. Apart from the fact that they add a nice touch of drama to book names, they really do seem to invoke good story lines lately:



The Bishop's Daughter, by Tiffany L. Warren

The Heretic's Daughter, by Kathleen Kent

The BoneMan's Daughters, by Ted Dekker

The Imposter's Daughter, by Laurie Sandell

The Gifted Gabaldon Sisters, by Lorraine Lopez (okay, so maybe… Continue

Hating Today's Weather

I can stand rain. I can stand the cold. But rain and cold together is just the most annoying, uncomfortable thing.

Kismet, Fate, Call It What You Like

By Sara Solomon

Darius, the resident Persian cat, narrates the lives of five households in this exclusive, private close somewhere in the English countryside. You will meet folk from all different walks of life, from American, Turkish, Jewish, Muslim, rich to poor, the lucky, the unlucky. 

The stories, some funny, some sad, will unveil people from all over the world with the same fears and aspirations. Doesn’t matter what language you speak, how big your stamp collection, people are people. Wherever in the world you live, a tear is a tear, a headache is a headache and a smile is a smile. Life is the same all over. So every person holding this book is already in it.

Can none of us escape what’s meant to be? As Darius might say, “Take me for instance. My life could have been very different. I could have ended up being owned by a raving alcoholic, eating smelly scraps out of a plastic bowl. Only I didn’t. I am fed on the best tuna money can buy, served in a silver bowl engraved with my name. So what’s all that about then? As my mother says, ‘Kismet, fate, call it what you like’.”

 

Paperback ISBN: 9781780352282

Coming to Amazon and Waterstones soon....
