The Brittle Sea Synopsis

The Titanic disaster is the catalyst that sparks a bloody feud between two families in early 20th century America.
Magda Asparov is travelling from her home in the Ukraine to be the chosen bride of Matthew Turner III. With passage booked on the Titanic, Magda’s ill-fated voyage on the unsinkable ship has far reaching consequences for her and her saviour. Magda survives the sinking of the Titanic, but loses her memory.
As a new chapter in American history unfolds, Magda is given a new identity by the crew of her rescue ship, The Lady Jane. The Captain of her rescue ship, Richard Blackmore falls in love with Maggie.

In New York, Maggie moves in with Blackmore and unknown to them both, Maggie falls pregnant. When the time comes for his final voyage as a ship’s captain, Matthew Turner arranges for Maggie to be kidnapped.

Mental illness, betrayal, murder, and corruption all contrive to destroy Blackmore’s life on his return to America and he is accused of murder, found guilty and sentenced to death. With Maggie missing and his life destroyed, all that remains for Blackmore is to prove his innocence and to seek revenge.

Pricing

The list price is set at $4.99, but as an introduction I’m setting it at $1.99 for a couple of weeks. So don’t miss out and make a note of the publication date. I will be posting plenty of updates on my website, this blog, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram prior to publication.

I should also point out that each book is part of the whole and these are not standalone books. Cliffhangers, deception and complicated plots are a mark of these books. Don’t expect resolutions to happen in each book, one storyline will carry over to the next.

Here’s a timeline for trying to understand where each book sits with the other. These storylines are interspersed with the truth behind Magda’s pregnancy, her struggle to suppress her alter-ego Maggie, Blackmore’s revenge and warring families who will stop at nothing to each destroy other.

The Brittle Sea – 1911 to 1914

Storyline. Titanic disaster, government corruption, schizophrenia, family rivalry and outbreak of WW1.

One last thing, if you’ve been following The Brittle Sea story I’ve posted on my blog, bear in mind it was a first draft and things will have changed over time, including locations, storyline and character names.
