I’m happy to announce the publication of the latest book in the Paradise Landing series. ‘Loss of Innocence’ centres on two well-known islanders, Effie Pappas and Ada Stewart.
Effie is now sixteen and ready to win a university scholarship but she finds the strange behaviour of her tutor unnerving. His daughter Claire is desperately unhappy and Effie begins to wonder what goes on behind closed doors.
On the other side of the island, long-time resident Ada Stewart has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. With Effie’s help, she unravels a secret from her past but fears she has left it too late to solve the mystery.
In the summer of her sixteenth year, Effie discovers the depth of her own strength and character, whilst Ada, in the final weeks of her life, learns it is never too late to find love.
