An isolated stone cottage with no mains water, invaded by mice, rats and swarms of insects, a place where giant snowdrifts sever the electricity supply and all connections with the outside world... This is what Lawrence and Christine Dyer face when they start a new life up in the bleak, rocky hills of the English Peak District. Wild creatures, eccentric hill folk, uncooperative farm animals and foaling Shetland ponies all have a part to play in this relating of triumphs and disasters -- all set against the incredibly beautiful backdrop of the hills and moors with their bold crags of dark millstone grit, their secret valleys of moss-carpeted forests and clear brooks sheltering shoals of trout.
Jeremy's Cottage is a collection of short stories, all fictional, in which ordinary people become ensnared in dilemmas, sometimes not of their own making. Each person asks for help and receives a message through a chance meeting, a dream, a fleeting thought, or even what at first appears to be a tragedy. A beloved pet might hold the solution at times. Each answer sets that person on a path out of the dilemma.
New York Times bestselling author JoAnn Ross returns to Shelter Bay's sister city, Castlelough, Ireland, home to her beloved, award-winning Irish trilogy-A Woman's Heart, Fair Haven, and Legends Lake-with a story about a woman overcoming tragedy and a man whose heart she once broke. When burned-out war journalist Duncan McCaragh is assigned to cover a "sighting" of the Lady, Ireland's sea beastie version of Scotland's Nessie, he decides to use his forced time in Castlelough to come up with a plan to win back his estranged wife. Failure is not an option... What he has no way of knowing is that photojournalist Cassandra Carpenter is also on her way to Castlelough with the divorce papers Duncan's been refusing to sign. Can the magic of the Emerald Isle and the Lady reunite these two wounded hearts?
