Maggie’s Child by Glynis Smy
When farmer’s wife Maggie Sawbury gives birth to her fifth child, the only one that has lived and the result of an extra-marital affair, she is heartbroken and desperate. Maggie knows her joyless life with a bully of a husband is not one a child should endure, and she leaves the baby at the roadside to be found by passers-by. Her money-driven husband announces he has found her another job in the village of Redgrave, aside from the many tasks she has on Windtop farm. He is totally unaware the position comes with a secret. One that frightens and yet brings joy to Maggie. She is to become wet-nurse to her abandoned child. Love, and the possibility of incest, threaten to open old wounds, and Maggie has several decisions to make. However, will they be the right ones? If she tells all she knows, it will bring about the destruction of three families. Equally, her silence could be just as destructive. She shares her secret with another, the result changes her life, and a death brings with it more secrets. Will Maggie stay or will she walk away and find the love she craves?

Monster Is in the Eye of the Beholder by Lorinda J. Taylor
In this dark and edgy first-contact story, a team of anthropologists discovers a species of truly bizarre intelligent lifeforms called the Kal. The team consists of the leader, an experienced, highly respected female Professor of Xenoanthropology and Linguistics; a young female biomedical specialist; and a still younger male, an expert in alien artifacts. As each team member reacts in a different way to the Kal, the story builds toward a disturbing climax and a conclusion with an unsettling twist of perspective. This novella consistently receives top reviews, mostly 5 star. One reviewer says, “I sat down on a Sunday afternoon thinking I would make a start reading the first few pages, but as it turned out I couldn’t put it down and read it in one sitting.”

African Me & Satellite TV by Jo Robinson
African Me & Satellite TV is about a woman finding her strength, the courage to say what she feels, and facing all that her life offers head-on. Suzette struggles with her deeply hidden anger and guilt at the wrongs she perceives done to Africa. She rages inwardly at the suffering all around her in the country of her birth. Zimbabwe. Small or large hurts inflicted by the casual racist remarks and actions of those around her, and the poverty, suffering, and even corruption, that she stubbornly insists is only the fault of colonisation. She feels that her family are some of the worst offenders. But Suzette is afraid of social embarrassment, so she holds her tongue, ignoring most of what happens around her, thereby avoiding any chance of shaming herself or her relatives. Until a tragedy so awful takes place that she can no longer hide her head in the sand. Suzette finds her voice and her world explodes. Events leading up to and following the death of a seemingly poor and simple man, Suzette’s gardener, changes her life and those of her friends forever. This story encompasses many of the darkest deeds committed in apartheid South Africa, as well as the way of life in current day Zimbabwe. It plumbs depths of despair and soars to heights of great joy and laughter, as Suzette claws her way out of her immobilising fear back to life, happiness, but mostly back to love.
