FORGET-ME-NOT-BRIDE

At the height of the Alaskan gold-rush women were thin on the ground and the Peabody Marriage Bureau did a smart trade despatching mail-order brides to women-starved men. When Lilli Stullen sailed on the S.S.Senator as a Peabody bride she did so to remove her orphaned younger brother and sister from the clutches of their hated uncle. To Lilli, the sacrifice of marrying a man she had never met was small in comparison to ensuring Leo and Lottie’s happiness – or was until she met Lucky Jack Coolidge, a gambler with devilry in his eyes. Lilli was certain that when they arrived in the Klondike, Jack would pay off her husband-to-be and marry her himself, but she had reckoned without Ringan Cameron, the red-haired Scot awaiting her arrival.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_single_image image=”59″ img_size=”249 × 57″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.amazon.co.uk/Forget-Me-Not-Bride-Margaret-Pemberton-2012-10-04/dp/B01K90C9DG/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

MOONFLOWER MADNESS

Beneath the light of the moon the Chinese moonflower blooms only one night a year. No European has seen it blossom and Zachary Cartwright, Victorian rebel and plant-hunter, is determined to do so. He stays overnight at the British Residency in Chung King before setting off into China’s unexplored vastness in search of it. Gianetta Hollis, niece of the British Envoy, has never been allowed to leave the safety of Chung King and explore the wild and beautiful countryside beyond it. Now she sees her opportunity. She will become an uninvited member of Zachary Cartwright’s expedition and travel to the remotest corner of China in search of blue moonflowers. Her decision brings adventure and love beyond her wildest imaginings. It is, however, a love ravaged by heartbreak; heartbreak only the legendary moonflower can heal.

PARTY IN PEKING

Olivia Harland is with her aunt and uncle in the hills north of Peking. It is 1900 and the air is heavy with the talk of Boxers, the Chinese rebels who are obsessed with driving Europeans from China. She rides a little way off to contemplate a proposal of marriage from a young diplomat, Philippe Casanaeve, and it is then that the Boxers attack. Adam Ross is a doctor in the remote Northern Provinces. His Chinese wife has been murdered by the Boxers and he is returning home after depositing his baby son in Peking for safety. It is Adam who saves Olivia’s life, escorting her and her fellow survivors back through Boxer-infested country to Peking. It is Adam she falls in love with, but she believes his wife is still alive, and in Peking Phillipe is waiting for her.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_single_image image=”59″ img_size=” 249 × 57″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.amazon.co.uk/Party-Peking-Margaret-Pemberton/dp/1447244796/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1488188304&sr=1-1&keywords=PARTY+IN+PEKING+by+margaret”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

How was she to know that forever meant beyond the grave?[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_single_image image=”59″ img_size=” 249 × 57″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.amazon.co.uk/Forever-Nightshades-S-Margaret-Pemberton/dp/0006162177/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

THE LONDONERS

It is 1939 and Kate Voigt and her father Carl have always been at the heart of Magnolia Square. Then war breaks out and suddenly it feels as though the Voigts – with their German blood – are outcasts in their own community. When Carl is interned, Kate’s only support comes from her best friend Carrie, and her sweetheart Toby, who is a pilot in the RAF. But when Toby is killed, and Carrie suddenly turns against her, Kate finds herself pregnant and very much alone. Late one Christmas Eve she is approached by a wounded sailor looking for lodgings. Like Kate, Leon Emmerson is a lonely misfit and they strike up a rapport. But as their friendship and the war develop, and Kate experiences one traumatic event after another, she wonders if she will ever be a part of Magnolia Square again.

CORONATION SUMMER

It is summer 1953 and the friends and neighbours of Magnolia Square are looking forward to celebrating the Coronation. The war is a distant memory and the future seems rosy. Kate Emmerson is proud of her growing family, which includes Matthew, whose father was killed in the war. Matthew’s wealthy relations have never forgiven Kate for marrying Leon, a West Indian Thames lighterman, and when Matthew runs away from his smart boarding school, tensions between the two families come to a head. Meanwhile Zac, the handsome new signing at the local boxing club, is being eyed hopefully by the young women of the square, but has eyes only for Carrie Collins, whose husband, Danny, is more interested in the boxing club and his market stall than in her. In the weeks leading up to the Coronation, Magnolia Square is once again the centre of conflict and drama.

YORKSHIRE ROSE

In pre-First World War Bradford Rose Sugden’s maternal grandfather, Caleb Rimmington, is a wealthy mill owner. Rose, however, has no contact with him, for Caleb, disappointed by his daughter’s marriage to a tapestry designer, has disowned contact with her, and with her three children. To Rose, and her brother Noel and sister Nina, their grandfather is a myth they long to meet; even more so they long to meet their Rimmington cousins, cousins they can only read about in the gossip columns of their local paper. When Caleb dies this dream becomes reality and intense, passionate relationships follow. There are broken marriages and broken lives and throughout it all Rose is the warp and weft that keeps the family intact.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_single_image image=”59″ img_size=”249 × 57″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yorkshire-Rose-Bello-Margaret-Pemberton-ebook/dp/B00992B0XG/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

THE FOUR OF US

In September 1962 four girls meet on their first day at school. Artemis is the daughter of a self-made man. Geraldine is from an upper-class family. Kiki’s father is a doctor and Primmie is a scholarship girl. For seven years they are inseparable, and when they leave school and move into a flat in London it seems that life can only get better. It doesn’t take long, though, for their illusions about each other to be shattered. And – amid secrets and heartbreak – their relationship begins to disintegrate, and they go their separate ways. Three of the four women have very good reasons for not wishing to rekindle their friendship, so years later, when Primmie inherits a Cornish smallholding and posts a message on Friends Reunited in the hope they can all make contact again, the results are not at all what she expects.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_column_text]
