Trials, Tears and Tribulations

If you pick Tribute, bring out your pillows and comforter; if you pick Mummy's Witness, grab a box of tissues; if you pick Runaway, bring out your sports shoes ;) Whichever one you pick as your next read, you know you'll be in for an unforgettable journey... :)

* Tribute by Nora Roberts
Janet Hardy is a Hollywood legend who's glamorous, brilliant, deeply troubled and died mysteriously at her home. When her granddaughter Cilla moves in, and is determined to restore the home to its former glory, she finds herself dreaming of the grandmother she never really knew and wonders of her past. As she settles in, she begins to unravel her family's secrets. But someone wants her to leave the past alone, and she becomes the target of increasingly brutal acts. Together with her neighbour, Ford Sawyer, she must find out who is is threatening her and why.

* Mummy's Witness by Gayle Sanders
To the outside world, the Sanders family was a respectable one - the father a teacher, the mom a housewife and mother of three. Nobody would have known or believed that what lies behind those doors was a vicious dad who abuses his wife. Gayle herself endured physical and sexual abuse. Desperate not to be noticed, she retreated to herself. She was disconnected from the world. Everything came to a brutal end when, at 12 years old, she witnessed her dad kill her mom. Dad pleaded manslaughter, years later was released and became a vicar. Gayle's tormented life didn't end here. When she passed from foster family to psychiatric hospital, she narrowly survived a suicide attempt and now she is undergoing the further shocking trauma of rape. Find out how Gayle survives and triumphs over her past.

* Runaway by Skye Sinclair
Skye spent her childhood in and out of care homes, often feeling unloved and alone. The only thing she ever learned was how to fend for herself, and how to run. When she was 12, she suffered a brutal attack that left her feeling betrayed. So Skye ran away and lived with the gypsies of the New Forest. Her fighting spirit and sense of adventure took her from the abattoirs of France to the film studios of Hollywood, and it wasn't until years later that she found a reason to stop running. She found a 'place' she could call home...
