Doreen’s Dream by Jennie Phillips – $3.62

Doreen's Dream by Jennie PhillipsBy the author of top-selling ‘Skeoch – Our new life on a Scottish hill farm’ and ‘A bolt for freedom’. Jennie Phillips’ first full-length romance novel is a life lesson without being preachy; heart-warming without being corny.

Overweight, constantly sick and stuck in a dead-end job, Doreen feels like a better life is passing her by. Vodka, her pet hamster and her infatuation with her boss, Christopher, are the only fragments of joy in her dreary life. But after making a few shocking discoveries, she decides things have to change; starting with one hell of a makeover.

When Christopher Fullerton receives a letter informing him of his eccentric uncle’s death and his inheritance of a boat out in the tiny Greek island of Pserimos , he flies out there to claim it. But he has only three weeks, which prove to be too little time to fulfil his new-found adoration for the place. With all his responsibilities at home, can he possibly settle there forever?

Back in Portsmouth, Doreen waits for a postcard from Christopher every day, dreaming of his return. With her new image, re-decorated house and growing confidence, she’s convinced he’ll finally notice her; but those around her say otherwise…

With characters like the timid Trevor, the callous Steve and the unscrupulous Charlie Tag, the troubled lives in Doreen’s Dream interweave and inspire. This is a rare gem of a book which reminds us that nothing is ever certain in this life and that we should never be afraid to follow our true callings.

Queen Anne’s Lace by Damaris West – $1.61

Queen Anne's LaceMaternal love, filial love, romantic love but is that enough love to conquer adversity?

The cottage, just near enough to the sea to give a ‘sea feeling’, was more than a holiday home to the McKay family; it was somewhere they all found peace and happiness in their differing ways.

Just widowed and seeking relief from loneliness in the religious life of a convent, Isabel McKay offers the cottage to the nuns in a rush of sentimentality. Her three children, Kate, Angus and Violet, are variously furious, shocked, and intrigued by their mother’s choices. Plots to dissuade her come to nothing,

The children have their own interweaving lives and relationships to pursue. Everything comes to a head at the wedding reception of the pregnant Kate when her father-in-law, an ill-meaning meddler, goads Isabel into announcing, prematurely, that she means to sell the cottage because the nuns have rejected it.

The announcement, although apparently divisive, sows the seeds of an unexpected solution to the family’s dilemma, but it is a solution which will require sacrifice and some drastic changes of allegiance.
