My novel about Siamese twins titled ‘Riven is now on Kindle. It can be read with a free downloaded Kindle app for an iPad, smartphone, tablet, or computer. The book is available from Amazon. What’s it about? Brief blurb below:
It is the story of the Victorian painter Thomas Tait Genoa and his desperate flight through the West Country to save his conjoined twin daughters from the surgeon’s knife.
It is 1849 and a summer of foul weather. Recovering from a breakdown, Genoa is certain of only one thing—that his pursuers will stop at nothing to recapture the two babies in the back of his cart.
He trusts no one. Friends turn out to be enemies. Racked with grief and guilt, he yearns for his dead wife. His fears for the well-being of the children grow as epidemics of scarlet fever and cholera close in. And as the health of one deteriorates he is cast into an impossible dilemma: if he returns them it will be to certain death. But where can he hide them that will guarantee their safety?
Could the eccentric photographer James Jacks who dabbles in pornography turn out to be the ally he needs? Will his attraction to the governess Harriet Julien help or hinder him?
Genoa’s frantic flight draws him relentlessly to the remote north Devon coast and to a shock conclusion that changes everything – for him and for the two children he loves and has fought so hard to protect.
