Dead to Me

Spring 1935.

On London's Hampstead Heath, two girls meet by chance: well-mannered and smartly dressed Verity and dishevelled and grubby Ruby. Somehow, the mismatched pair form an instant friendship strong enough to survive their parent's disapproval.

When war engulfs the country - sending Ruby to Devon while Verity struggles to find a new beginning under a shadow from her past - the girls are convinced they will always be there for each other. Until the day one breaks the other's heart . . .

Can Verity and Ruby find a way back to each other before it's too late?

Gypsy

Tragedy sent her on a journey far from home . . .

Fifteen-year-old Beth's life is shattered when she and her brother Sam are orphaned. Believing that only in America can they make a fresh start, brother and sister leave Liverpool and embark on the greatest adventure of their lives.

In New York, Beth's talent with the fiddle earns her the friendship of gamblers, chancers and other rogues. Dodging trouble across America, Beth and her friends head for the Klondike river in search of gold. But how far must Beth go to find happiness?

And will her travels lead this gypsy to a place she can ever call home?

Stolen

A woman washes up on a Sussex beach, barely alive.

She's wearing an old-fashioned dress and her hair has been hacked off. There are signs she has been bound by her wrists and ankles. She doesn't know how she ended up there, or even her own name.

The police are baffled and when the doctors examine her, they make a shocking discovery: She has recently given birth.

Who is she? And where is her baby?

A Lesser Evil

She defied her parents and married for love . . .

Following her heart, Fifi moves with Dan to London where they rent a seedy flat in Dale Street, Kennington. Though Fifi must now become acquainted with squalor, she is soon drawn into the goings on behind the shabby front doors of her new neighbours. But it is the Muckles, at number 11, who are the street's focus.

Rumours of criminal depravity and shocking behaviour are rife. So when Fifi steps in to help their youngest child, she risks the wrath of this frightening family.

Suddenly, not only her marriage and her family, but the lives of all the inhabitants of Dale Street are at the mercy of the immoral Muckles . . .

Forgive Me

Eva's life was secure, until the death of her mother changed everything. When Eva Patterson makes the devastating discovery of her mother, Flora, dead in the bath, she finds a note:

'Forgive Me'.

And then everything changes. For when Flora leaves Eva a London artist's studio in her will, she finds her mother had a secret past. In the studio's attic are Flora's paintings and diaries, and Eva learns her mother was a popular artist in the swinging sixties. Eva's hunt for answers uncovers clues to a shocking crime which led Flora to hide her past.

But will discovering the truth destroy Eva's belief in everything she holds dear?

And will this journey lead her and those she loves into danger?

The Promise

War threatens to take all she has loved and lived for . . .

On the outbreak of war, Belle Reilly's husband Jimmy enlists and heads for the deadly trenches of northern France. But Belle knows she cannot stand idly by when so many are sacrificing their lives. Volunteering to help battlefield wounded, Belle is posted to France as a Red Cross ambulance driver. There, a tragic accident brings her face to face with Etienne - a man from her past she's never quite forgotten. Torn between forbidden passion, loyalty and love, Belle is caught in an impossible situation.

Will she succumb to the dark forces of this most brutal of wars?

Or will fate intervene and finally lead her to lasting happiness?

Till We Meet Again

She killed two people in cold blood. But why?

Susan walks into a busy doctor's surgery and guns down two members of staff. Then she calmly waits for the police. Beth is the lawyer assigned to defend Susan. But her client is uncooperative until both women realise that twenty-nine years earlier, they were childhood friends.

As the evidence against Susan mounts up, both she and Beth begin to talk about the secrets and the traumas that sent them down such different paths in life.

Their friendship grows stronger.

But for one of them, there can be no happy ending . . .

Without a Trace

Coronation Day, 1953.

Molly Heywood slips away from the celebrations and makes a shocking discovery: her friend Cassie is dead and her six-year-old daughter Petal has vanished without a trace. The only clue is a letter from London, where Cassie once lived.

Now it is up to Molly to head there and uncover the past that her friend kept so well hidden. The closer Molly gets to the truth, the more perilous her journey becomes.

She has given up everything - her home, happiness and a chance at love - all to find Petal . . .

But is she also risking her life?

Remember Me

She made one mistake, and now she'll never see home again . . .

Mary, a Cornish mariner's daughter, makes the biggest mistake of her short life when she steals a silk hat. Convicted and sentenced to be transported to Australia, she endures horrific conditions aboard ship before landing in a brutal and barbaric country.

It will take all her courage just to survive. But Mary is also determined to make something of herself in this rugged man's world.

And she dreams that one day she will find a way of crossing the cruel seas that lie between her and home . . .

Belle

She witnessed a murder - and now her life is in danger . . .

Fifteen year-old Belle, though raised in a London brothel, is an innocent young girl. But when she witnesses one of the girls brutally strangled by a client, she is cast into a cruel, heartless world.

Snatched from the streets and sold into prostitution, she is made a courtesan in New Orleans. At the mercy of desperate men who crave her beauty and will do anything to keep her, Belle's dreams of home, family and freedom appear futile.

Are Belle's courage and spirit strong enough to help her escape?

And what will await her at the end of the long, dangerous journey home?

Father Unknown

Losing her adopted mother threatens all she's ever had . . .

Daisy was adopted. But when her mother dies, she finds her secure existence thrown into turmoil by the discovery of a scrapbook. Inside it is information about her real mother.

However, when Daisy drops everything to go in search of her roots, she uncovers a harrowing story of greed, misery and corruption. She also risks hurting her adored Dad, the only true family she has left.

Can she cope with the truth about her real parents?

And more importantly, who is the real Daisy?
