I hope you will have many happy hours of reading A Twist of Fate - the first book of a trilogy. The saga takes us through three generations of the Grayson and the Fitzwilliam families.

The second part, Destiny’s Path, and the third part, A Free Spirit, will be available soon.

It has been such a thrill to put my thoughts and imagination into words, and hope that you will enjoy reading the stories as much as I have writing them.

I hope I will meet some of you soon at a book signing event. More information will be given on Facebook as soon as it becomes available.

Best wishes, Shirley Dawson,
