No matter how good a doctor you are, it is so hard to look after someone you are emotionally attached to. For a start, you don’t want them to be seriously ill and common sense flies out of the window.

Ellie is back in her home town, finishing her training to become a GP and delighted to be nearer to her parents. She has a new home, she’s reunited with an old friend from medical school days and there is the excitement of a passionate and illicit affair.

Life is good.

But both her parents are trying to protect her from an awful secret.  When Ellie finds out and the situation turns out to be far worse than anyone expected, she has to face the realisation that things are going to change forever.

This is the third of five books in the popular Teviotdale medical centre series. The first two, Out of Practice and Faith Hope and Clarity are available now.

Few people realise that Faith Faber, seemingly an accomplished doctor is really a shy and insecure person. Her lack of confidence is not helped by the fact that she lives with her critical and overbearing mother, who has never come to terms with her own divorce and who does not approve of Faith’s engagement to the gregarious Jonty.

Faith is delighted to be offered a post at Teviotdale medical centre, one of the partners is on sick leave and soon she meets Pollyanna Smith, a hugely overweight young woman who yearns to be slim, something Faith can sympathise with as she herself has had a constant battle with food for most of her life. But nothing they try seems to help…. well, not Pollyanna anyway.

Will the course of love run smoothly? Will Faith accept who she really is? While her relationship explodes and she is faced with one of the biggest and most difficult diagnoses of her life, Faith discovers who her real friends are makes a huge decision of her own.

Teresa’s War, by Margaret J Carr

ISBN : 978-1-77076-443-9
Format : 188 pages, 5.5 x 8.5 inches
Interior Ink : Black & white
Binding : Perfect-bound Paperback

The story is based on a scrap of information the author was recent told. The extraordinary story is a previous unrecorded, and unconfirmed, story of  bravery during WW2.

It’s 1942. A small peasant farm, in the mountainous region of Nazi occupied Austria. On it lived a man, his wife and two daughters seven and five years old. Their life was relatively unaffected by the war, even if a Nazi garrison was close to the tiny village in the Tyrol. That was until the night a terrified family of Hungarian Jews, desperate to escape across the border, hid in a barn on the property and suddenly the family was in great danger. It was Teresa, their seven year old, who led the refugees to safety under the very noses of the Germans.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

I wrote my first book, an adventure story, at 12 when recovering from a childhood illness. After leaving school I trained in cosmetics and skin care until becoming the chief perfumery and cosmetic buyer for a department store. As a wife and mother I wrote the odd article or short story for magazines but it wasn’t until the 1980’s I returned to writing fulltime and have now completed over twenty fiction novels, ranging from murder mystery series to a teen fantasy trilogy and historical family saga. One of my titles has been on Waterstones best seller list and another was translated for the Indian market.

Ten years ago I was writing scripts for TV soaps and radio, including storylines for the popular soap operas Eastenders and Coronation Street. I have one son and two grandsons and live a quiet, but busy, life in the north west of England.
