Emma Field – Book One

Emma Field Book One by Carol Williams is  free in Kindle e-book format Feb 13-17. Visit Amazon.com to get your copy today. Book Two and Three will be available later this month.

Emma Field has dreams and desires that call her to go beyond her father’s struggle to survive as an immigrant in Canada West in the 1840s. With the love of a few peculiar people and her own courage, she takes her first tentative steps to understanding the world around her.

Emma Field, Book One, is a story of birth and death; and of the stirrings of body and soul, the desire for beauty, the ache of loneliness, the drive for independence and the pain of envy. It is a story of love and dignity, and of the power of taking risks.

In a Rosedale Garden – Kindle edition

In a Rosedale Garden is now out in e-book format on Kindle. Visit Amazon.com to purchase a copy. Print versions are also available on Amazon.com.

Six members of Brockville’s writers group Writers’ Ink accepted a challenge to write a book together. Writer’s Ink co-founder Anne “Bunty” Loucks wrote a novel titled In a Rosedale Garden over 20 years ago. Although it was released as a newspaper serial, it was never published as a book. The challenge accepted by the authors was to use In a Rosedale Garden as the plot, and each author would re-write their own chapter in their own style. The result is a novel titled Through a Glass, Darkly. Both novels have been combined together and published in one book. The book is titled In a Rosedale Garden but it also contains the author collaborative titled Through a Glass, Darkly.

In a Rosedale Garden

Six local authors join the original writer to re-tell a story written more than twenty years ago. Read In a Rosedale Garden and experience a mystery that transports you to the post-war era of the 40’s and 50’s when a family tragedy buries secrets for future generations to find. Then read Through a Glass, Darkly, where the same story takes on twists and turns from the six authors. This collaboration illustrates the difference between material written in a gentler time and that of the 21st century.
