The Cornish Bridesmaids
‘THE CORNISH BRIDESMAIDS’ tells the story of three girls from different generations, linked together by love.
Eloise, born in the 1930’s, was like thousands of other children, torn away from her family and evacuated from London at the start of World War II in 1939.
Along with a school friend and teacher she was billeted to a tiny coastal village in South West Cornwall. Slowly, with their support and that of her Cornish guardian, she settles into her new life. There is even an invitation to be a bridesmaid to cheer her up.
Then, disaster strikes and the story moves to the present day and another bridesmaid, Kristin, who introduces the story. These two characters have a strong connection and through this comes a third girl, Ruth, who had for many years been searching for the sister she only discovered in her teens.
Two separate photographs of the same girl, taken in different time zones, finally bring together these three people and the conclusion of this mystery.
Fat Guy Runs A Marathon
In 2012 Terry Lander applied for the London Marathon for the sixth year in a row which made it hard for him to remember why he’d entered in the first place. Despite having no previous running experience he finally decided to take up a charity bond place with St John Ambulance and started to train for the biggest challenge of his life.
This is his journey from couch to marathon in eleven short months with £100 trainers, killer hills, good and bad advice, unpredictable weather and the same man passing him twice. It is not a guide on how to run 26.2 miles, simply how he ran and, despite predictions to the contrary, survived.
Try The Shoebox On, Son, And We’ll See If It Matches Your Eyes
A group of students was put together with the sole purpose of reviewing this book. They used every device known to man in order for them to collate evidence, both scientific and spiritual, as to what kind of reader would enjoy the contents presented to them. With the relevant information, including pie charts, venn diagrams and zen manifestos, bound in a ring folder coloured with felt pens and covered with sparkly jewels from a clear bag, the group presented their findings to a team of entertainers from around the world. A four hour presentation unfolded before their eyes as the students covered each and every point in vivid detail, allowing nobody to leave the room having not absorbed the information thoroughly. With the students satisfied and the entertainers educated, a specific demographic was identified allowing the marketing managers and agents of the authors to sell directly to those who would benefit from the content of this production. Unfortunately one of the students had been in contact with an illegal substance, so the findings were deemed to be void and the process started again. The results of the next review will be presented in a luxury, leather bound, limited edition book approximately fifteen thousand years from now. Watch this space...
Panic And The Inner Monkey
The idea behind the Panic Monkey was first developed back in 1998. The subjects of anxiety and panic disorder are still relatively clouded in mystery, and are widely misunderstood. A great number of people have not found solace in the traditional self help market, and this is something that needs addressing.
The fusion of self help/fiction books is a new phenomena, but the notion that by reading a story based on fact, with characters that people are able to empathise with, could possibly help the reader is fast becoming more accepted.
The study of ridiculousness in the office chain of command, and the revelation at the end - are evocative of the best elements of 'Something Happened' by Joseph Heller. Initial reviews for the book have been glowing.
