- A World War One story
- An Australian heroine
- A wonded hero
- A dual time line
- A murder mystery
- And GHOSTS... a whole quiver of ghosts...
The gamble paid off and over the years since it was first published GATHER THE BONES remains one of my most popular stories.
BUT... when it was first published, my then editor persuaded me to leave out the Epilogue (I know the debate about Prologues and Epilogues rages on... and the story already had a Prologue!). However I felt the ending never quite closed the loop on Helen and Paul's relationship and this was confirmed by several reader reviews.
Yes, dear readers, we writers do read your reviews (even the 1 star reviews that make us want to jump off the nearest bridge). In this case I agreed with the sentiments and it is my huge pleasure to introduce a new, revised edition of GATHER THE BONES, complete with omitted Epilogue.
Best of all, GATHER THE BONES has a wonderful new cover from FIONA JAYDE MEDIA which really captures not only the dual time lines but also the historical and mystery elements in the book.
If you already know and love GATHER THE BONES, I don't expect you to repurchase the entire book but if you do want to read the Epilogue, I am making it available to my Readers' List.
