My editor challenged me to write a story in time for Valentine’s Day, so I did! And what better story than how Thomas Blake & Martha Ryan met in 1966. Such a romantic tale.
‘…a quick and beautiful read, with lots of emotions’
Only time itself will erase our love…
On the edge of the Great Southern Ocean, an old jetty offers a haven for those seeking solace. A place by the sea to think. Plan. And dream.
As the daughter of the region’s wealthiest family, Martha Ryan has everything a girl could ask for. Money means nothing because her soul longs for adventure, love and a family of her own.
Thomas Blake is an artist weighed down by duty. Expected to follow his father into employment by the Ryan family as stationmaster, he yearns for the freedom to paint.
A chance meeting at the jetty one dawn changes both their lives. But will the expectations and prejudices of their families destroy their future?
Fall in love with Thomas and Martha in Taming the Wind, prequel of The Stationmaster’s Cottage. Perfect as a standalone with its own happy ever after, or follow the lives and loves of the residents in River’s End across all six books.
