A Flight of Golden Wings
It is September 1939. Britain is at war.

In America, Jack and Lucy Nelson, both experienced pilots themselves, are keen to join too. After a perilous journey by sea, Jack soon has his first experience of the London Blitz before being posted to White Waltham, where he quite literally bumps into Ruth. Despite a few false starts, Ruth soon realizes she has fallen in love with Jack. But with death and heartbreak all around them, the cautious Jack can’t put his heart on the line when it could all end in tragedy and loss. But by 1944, the tide of war is changing. Jack is sent to France to deliver a Spitfire, but his plane never arrives. Heartbroken, Ruth must accept that the love of her life may never return…
The Lost Girl
Orphaned as a baby and taken in by an American family, Charity Walker knows this only too well. The mounting tensions between the new Chinese immigrants and the locals in the mining town of Carter see her shunned by both communities.
When Charity’s one friend, Joe, leaves town, she finds herself isolated. However, in his absence, a new friendship with the only other Chinese girl in Carter makes her feel like she finally belongs somewhere.
But, for a lost girl like Charity, finding a place to call home was never going to be that easy…
A Stranger in Honeyfield
Bella’s fiancé is killed during the First World War. Rather than receiving sympathy in her grief, Bella is scorned at Philip’s funeral by the family she had hoped to join. Even her own mother says no good ever came of a woman trying to marry someone so different.
With no one to turn to, Bella throws herself into war work and moves away from home. But a lawyer tracks her down as she’s been left something in Phillip’s will. The inheritance brings new problems and even dangers. Can she find her way through it and make a new life?
Love – is it worth its weight in gold?
It’s 1866 and the gold rush is on. Left to fend for herself in the wilds of New Zealand’s west coast, Lady Guinevere Stanhope is determined to do whatever it takes to rescue her ancestral home and restore her father’s good name.
Forced out of his native Ireland, Quinn O’Donnell dreams of striking gold. His fiercely held prejudices make him loath to help any English person, let alone a lady as haughty and obstinate as Guinevere. But when a flash flood hits, Quinn is compelled to rescue her, and their paths become entwined in this uncharted new world.
Though a most inconvenient attraction forms between them, both remain determined to pursue their dreams. Will they realize in time that all that glitters in not gold?
