Inhaltsangabe: A fast-paced, action-packed historical romance set during the last days of the Old South
When unimaginable calamities strike, Mercy Carver, a poor London woman, wonders what she has done to deserve such immeasurable suffering. It is only when she faces imminent death in the snow and ice-encrusted Virginia wilderness that she finally understands the power of destiny.
Mercy is passionate. She loves and hates in equal measure. Can love and hatred give her the strength she needs now to reach a Northern state, and free a runaway slave wanted for murders, she committed?
America and her people are strangled in an uncompromising political stalemate. Southern states have seceded from the Union, and a civil war is imminent.
Mercy Carver: her journey is just beginning.

Review
"A fast-paced, action-packed historical romance set during the last days of the Old South." Kirkus Review

"A female Dickens." Amazon Reviewer)

Über den Autor: I lived out my childhood days in, Dénia, on the beautiful eastern coast of Spain and have after a long adventure returned there to live on a permanent basis. My family settled in Spain but I took a different path. I am a born traveller. I very rarely went to school, but travelling gave me the best education I could ever have hoped for. I joined the (British) Royal Navy at the age of seventeen. I was a leading Naval Policewoman, equivalent to a sergeant in the military police. I would like to think that the Navy taught me discipline and Respect for others. After the Navy, I went to work for a travel company as an overseas representative. Seasons in the Balearic Islands, followed by the Canary Islands and North Africa awakened my interest in "people studying." During the first Gulf War I was a security guard at the BBC World Service radio station. I worked twelve-hour nightshifts guarding an Iraqi Journalist, famous (or rather infamous) in his own country. I was head-hunted by a man who worked for, the now, Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. I left the BBC and then spent twelve years as a bodyguard for a Saudi Princess. I travelled extensively, dined with kings and royalty, and spent a lot of time waiting for my Princess to get out of bed before long days of clothes shopping. My marriage lasted twelve years but my divorce ended my career as a bodyguard (divorcing my husband was unforgivable as far as the Saudi's were concerned). I found a new career as a cabin-crew member for British Airways, which allowed me to travel extensively to every corner of the world, at least two or three times. I have never been to New Zealand - a pity, or to Iran, which would have been an eye opener. Unfortunately, I had an accident on board a flight. The aircraft, a Boeing 747, was flying at 39,000 feet above Africa when it was caught in clear-air turbulence. As the plane dropped my body flew upward causing my head to hit the cabin's ceiling. As a result of this accident, I have had three major operations on my spinal cord and am now retired. I missed the busy and interesting experiences that my job had brought me, thus turning my attention to writing. The Guardian of Secrets is my first major work of, historical fiction. My new book, Mercy Carver, Dark Shadows, is the first book in the Mercy Carver series and will be followed by, Mercy Carver Blood Moon, end of 2014.
