Wild Goose is the story of Jemima, a young girl growing up at the home of her grandparents in rural East Anglia. Her widowed father is an Oxford don who reads literature and sees that as the natural career progression for his daughter. Jemima’s talents lie in a different direction and, despite her father’s clumsy attempts to gently but firmly guide her down the path he followed, she takes a strong interest in the natural world.

Underlying the seemingly tranquil world that she lives in, there is a dark and growing alienation between father and daughter. Jemima wants to please him but she can’t and this internal conflict erupts during her school exams which she flunks and then attempts suicide by drowning in her beloved sea.

Every crime has a victim!

This novel is set about the fictitious town of Stockton and involves the building of a new road – an event which brings out the worst in an array of differing characters with equally different agendas.

Corruption is as old as the hills but many people don’t or won’t see that even the smallest ‘bad cough’ or ‘patting of one’s back pocket’ can have far-reaching consequences. If you think we’ve got a democracy, this book will open your eyes to what really goes on. Yet, despite that, it is not political – it’s a very human tale of how the countryside is being exploited for everyone’s gain. Everyone, that is, except the public.

Henry, our main character, is a town planner. He has a miserable marriage, children who just see him as a no-limit credit card, and a toadying boss who is obsessed with pointless minutiae and the feathering of his own nest through social climbing. One day Henry spots an opportunity for escape and …

A modern family saga and romance

This story begins in an old cottage near the coast. With the death of her husband fresh behind her, Isabel McKay is a bit of a lost soul. Her children have grown up and moved on and her partner of many years has gone. She feels lonely and purposeless.

Isabel finds her purpose in a nearby convent, so much so that she eventually offers the family cottage to the Order. Her children and their own intended partners object vociferously to this decision but to no avail. Ironically, the nuns reject the cottage but not the proceeds from its sale.

Kate, one of Isabel’s daughters is pregnant and, at her wedding Derek, her new (and delightfully obnoxious) father-in-law winds Isabel up so much that she confesses the situation to her children.

This announcement brings about a logical but, nevertheless, surprising solution to the dilemma.
