Denis Leeman's story of sex and violence, love and hate, comedy

in all sorts of ways, eventually, er, climaxes.

by Ross Buckner
Angel is a story about two people and the script that changed
their lives. Steve is a widower trying to rebuild his life with his
young daughter and his music. Solace comes slowly and when the painful
loneliness is too great, he succumbs to his attraction for a newcomer
to Whaler's Cove. Rose Marie, burdened with her own tragedy, instead
has found the only companionship she needs in her heartache. Terrified
to love again, she flees Steve's small-town overtures for the lucre
of corporate fast-track promises, where her anguish is diminished
by the promising halcyon days of her boundless career. Having served
the corporate cause with valor, greater power and glory will be hers
if she continues to go along. It's an easy choice. Yet, a distant
voice sings from the recesses of her soul - "What will you pay?" Whispered
Angel stokes the heart and intellect in a tale of tenderness and wickedness
that tests the strength of family, friendship and love in a crucible
of executive immorality, domestic violence and cruel circumstance
until redemption and justice come calling.

A BOOK YOU JUST CANNOT PUT DOWN!
Cruel Legacy by Sarah Turner; (The Publishing
review by Natalie Cox
SARAH TURNER'S book spans two generations as it focuses on the
life of Ben Johnson. Born in the North, the author spent part of her
life in London and France, before moving to Warwickshire where she
now works with her husband. "Cruel Legacy" is her first novel, but
has already been enjoyed by a number of Clitheronians, due to the
author's son, David, living and working in the town. The prologue
starts in 1918, setting the scene and introducing readers to Ben,
the book's central character. After a sad start, Ben is determined
not to return to a life of poverty, but his ambition is stopped in
its tracks by a moment of indiscretion. The central character later
seizes a chance to escape the constraints of his life by assuming
a new identity, leaving his family and forgetting his past. He later
finds himself caught in a web of lies and facing a decision that could
see him lose the love of another woman. Ultimately, it becomes clear
that there is a price to pay. The book, which is split into four parts
that span the different decades, is available from Amazon.co.uk.
It is well-written and one of those that, once you've started, you
won't want to put down.
The Creative Age
This fascinating and illuminating book suggests
that every job needs three creative elements: knowledge of the sources
of ideas and how to stimulate them; understanding how free will
works in people and companies; and an awareness of the changing
conditions and world events.
Tim Lewis is presently working as a freelance
Interim Manager, having had twenty years of wide-ranging commercial

The Left-hander's Handbook
by Diane G Paul: The guide for parents and teachers to help left-handed
children succeed in a right-handed world.
Most left-handers perform most activities with little difficulty
most of the time. But left-handers are sometimes at a real disadvantage,
for example, handwriting problems can have a serious effect on career
opportunities. So left-handed children do need some assistance - and
parents and teachers need guidance on how to provide help.
The Left-hander's Handbook defines and explores reasons for different
types of left-handedness, and responds to many 'frequently-asked questions'
received by the author. It has a major section on handwriting, with
contributions from Dr Jean Alston, Audrey McAllen, Dr Rosemary Sassoon
and Prue Wallis Myers. It also identifies useful sources for specialist
equipment and provides some suggestions for school projects and some
interesting instructions for crafts and music.
Diane G Paul is a well-known writer, lecturer and frequent broadcaster.
Her research into left-handedness, funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian
Foundation, gave rise to this Handbook which has become an essential
resource for anyone responsible for left-handed children. The advisory
Guidelines have been adopted as an educational resource for teachers
by the National Foundation for Education Research and The Left-hander's
Handbook was selected as a Highly Commended runner-up in the British
Medical Association Book Competition, Popular Medicine Category, in
