From the bestselling author of The Tuscan Child comes a beautiful and heart-rending novel of a woman's love and sacrifice during the First World War. As the Great War continues to take its toll, headstrong twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce is determined to contribute to the war effort. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, and it is not long before she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage. When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a "land girl," tending to the neglected grounds of a large Devonshire estate. It's here that Emily discovers the long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman who devoted her life to her herbal garden. The journals inspire Emily, and in the wake of devastating news, they are her saving grace. Emily's lover has not only died a hero but has left her terrified--and with child. Since no one knows that Emily was never married, she adopts the charade of a war widow. As Emily learns more about the volatile power of healing with herbs, the found journals will bring her to the brink of disaster, but may open a path to her destiny.

In a tiny hamlet nestled in the Tuscan mountains, farmers gather after a hard day in the meadows, and children's laughter rings across the square: but one little boy does not join in their play. Behind his deep brown eyes, hides a heartbreaking secret... Ninety years later. When elderly Giselda Chiozzi discovers a lost little boy, curled up asleep in the beech forest outside her grand but empty home, she can't help but take pity on him. It's been a long time since she had a visitor. Waking up to her kind smile and the warming smell of Italian hot chocolate, Davide soon blurts out what drove him into the cold Tuscan night: he's different from everyone else, he's never belonged anywhere, and now his beloved mother is ill. With her heart full of sadness for this lost child, Giselda promises to help Davide trace his family history - she knows better than anyone that connecting with your roots can ground you in the present, and hopes it will make Davide realise that home is where he truly belongs. Together the unlikely pair discover the story of Davide's great-grandfather, Giuseppe Starnucci, a young boy who spent his days milking cows, helping with the harvest, and hammering horseshoes in the forge. But after a terrible incident that changed his life forever, Giuseppe also ran away. Forced to become a man before his time, Giuseppe joined the treacherous pilgrimage all Tuscan farmers must make from the mountains to the plains, sacrificing everything to ensure the survival of their families. Engrossed in the story, Davide is slowly starting to heal when he and Giselda discover a shocking secret which Giuseppe took to his grave - and which now threatens to tear apart Davide's family for good. Will Davide let the pain of the past determine his future, or can he find the courage, love and loyalty within him to return home... and even if Davide himself finds peace, will it be too late for Giselda? Inspired by true stories of rural Italian life, this absolutely stunning historical read is perfect for fans of Dinah Jeffries, Rhys Bowen, and anyone who's ever longed to stroll beneath the cypress trees and taste the fresh mountain air of Tuscany.

From Homer to Tim O’Brien, war literature remains largely the domain of male writers, and traditional narratives imply that the burdens of war are carried by men. But women and children disproportionately suffer the consequences of conflict: famine, disease, sexual abuse, and emotional trauma caused by loss of loved ones, property, and means of subsistence. Collateral Damage tells the stories of those who struggle on the margins of armed conflict or who attempt to rebuild their lives after a war. Bringing together the writings of female authors from across the world, this collection animates the wartime experiences of women as military mothers, combatants, supporters, war resisters, and victims. Their stories stretch from Rwanda to El Salvador, Romania to Sri Lanka, Chile to Iraq. Spanning fiction, poetry, drama, essay, memoir, and reportage, the selections are contextualized by brief author commentaries. The first collection to embrace so wide a range of contemporary authors from such diverse backgrounds, Collateral Damage seeks to validate and shine a light on the experiences of women by revealing the consequences of war endured by millions whose voices are rarely heard.

For centuries, social life in rural Tuscany has centered around the veglia, an evening gathering of family and friends at the hearth. Folklore by the Fireside is a thorough and insightful study of this custom—from the tales, riddles, lullabies, and folk prayers performed as the small children are put to bed to the courtship songs and dances later in the evening to the anti-veglia male gossip, card games, and protest songs originating in the tavern. Alessandro Falassi skillfully correlates the veglia to the rites of passage and family values of an agrarian society. Although the impact of mass media and other factors has tended to weaken the tradition, even today Tuscan children are taught to behave and adolescents are guided along the conventional path to adulthood, courtship, and marriage through veglia folklore. This is the first work to deal systematically with Tuscan folklore from a semiotic and structural viewpoint and to examine the veglia as a means of handing down traditional values. It is important not only for its careful, detailed description but also for its rigorous methodology and theoretical richness.

Cassandra spent a passionate night in Rome with Marco, but the next morning she was left with only the cold sheets for company. And a check for a large sum of money—she was his gardener and he’d treated her like a prostitute. The famous Italian billionaire had contracted her to work at his country house. When he’d asked her to be his last-minute date for a party he was hosting, she’d agreed to help, but she’d also fully realized how different their social circles were. Now, after being treated so appallingly by him, Cassandra has gone home to England without accepting his check. She’s decided to forget about Marco. But that will be easier said than done when she discovers she’s pregnant with his child…

"Elegant prose at the hand of an experienced story-teller." -Rhys Bowen, New York Times best-selling author of the Royal Spyness and Molly Murphy Mysteries as well as the #1 Kindle bestsellers "In Farleigh Field" and "The Tuscan Child." THE RUSSIAN GIRL is based on the true story of a woman who escapes from a high security nursing home during the hottest day of the year. The thermometer reads 115 degrees and she is dehydrated, lost, slogging through the burning sands of a New Mexico desert, constantly craving an ice cold Coke. Her delirium reveals a harrowing story of a young immigrant Russian girl forced to come to America in the early 1900s. Her turbulent life is filled with upheaval, lost love, and activism in a crushing, brutal 20th century journey. Minna Goldmich's mind wanders, remembering her childhood as a peasant girl in Russia-the youngest in a line of Jewish healers. Her family only survived being butchered by marauding Cossacks because of her and her mother's unique ability to heal cows. The twelve-year-old Russian girl's life is forever changed when she is almost raped. While defending herself, she accidentally kills her Jew-hating attacker and is forced to flee from the only life she's ever known. Alone and traumatized, her mother sends her to America to live. There, she not only joins the great melting pot of people from all over the world, she meets the love of her life and becomes a visiting nurse on the streets of Harlem. But her chaotic life is always overtaken by violent historical events that continue to reshape not only her life, but the world around her. REVIEWS "Intense, harrowing and oh so real, Bette Lamb's family history is brought vividly to life in elegant prose at the hand of an experienced story-teller." -Rhys Bowen, New York Times best-selling author of the Royal Spyness and Molly Murphy Mysteries as well as the #1 Kindle bestsellers "In Farleigh Field" and "The Tuscan Child." "A sweeping, soaring saga of history, family, the magic of healing, and the mysteries of love, all wrapped up in a page-turning thriller ranging from the Russian Revolution to the 1980s. Fair warning: you won't be able to stop reading 'The Russian Girl' " -Kelli Stanley, author of "City Of Sharks" "The history of a turbulent century across two continents is set inside an exquisite depiction of the end of one small life. And the brutal, sometimes harrowing, realities of that life are touched by magic in a way that feels utterly believable and satisfying. The Russian Girl combines a sharp eye, a big heart, and an irresistible page-turner of a story. Thoroughly recommended." -Catriona McPherson, bestselling and multi-award-winning author of the Dandy Gilver series and "Go To My Grave" "A beautiful, very thoughtful piece of writing, from the heart." -Rita Lakin, author of "The Only Woman In The Room" FROM THE AUTHOR: I am an RN, and yes, an ex-Bronxite. So listening to me talk (hands flying) can be a funny experience. I love to write crime novels and multi-task because I'm also an artist that plays with clay in my studio in my little home in the West (Marin County, CA.). My sculptures and other artistic creations appear in many juried national and local exhibitions, and I sell my work through galleries, associations, and retail stores. Being an RN is a huge clue as to why I like to write gritty medical thrillers with my husband J. J. Lamb.
