In 1945 Molly Hazleton is heart broken when her fiancé doesn’t return from the war after being reported “missing in action.” So when Aunt Daphne comes to visit with news of having bought a 17th century manor house at auction in Scotland, Molly welcomes the opportunity to start afresh and help her aunt turn Aberdoch Manor into a hotel.
With a strange sense of déjà vu, Molly struggles to understand her connection with the property having never stepped foot inside of it or even Scotland for that matter. Ross McDaniel, the newly appointed gardener, knows more than he is letting on. And when he shows Molly an ancient yew tree named by the locals as the Ghost Tree, after touching it, Molly discovers a remarkable ability to vividly see and experience her own past life - a life of extreme danger and hardship on the road with the Jacobite in 1745, hunted by the Red Coats for crimes she hasn’t committed. She is also in love with a brave, Scot warrior, leader of the McDaniel clan who soon
becomes her husband.
Stirring up forgotten memories and an uncontrollable yearning to be back with those she once loved, Molly is hopelessly torn between very different worlds, two hundred years apart!
THE GHOST OF BLUEBELL COTTAGE
An eerie mist surrounds the castle. Its icy fingers are curling and lingering between each stone wall. In the village, the locals are restless as they toss and turn in their sleep. The clip clop of horse’s hooves can be heard on cobblestones and shouts of angry drunken men in the far distance. The mystery man with his dog is back again, but who is he? The village of Corfe Castle is harbouring a dark secret stemming back to the 17th Century when Lady Bankes fought to protect the Castle and when Anthony Dickinson, a witch finder, tortured scores of unsuspecting women throughout Dorset. Drawn to a photo of Bluebell Cottage in a real estate window, Greg has an unusual, yearning to give up his life in London, after his recent marriage break-up, and live in the cottage. It seems that Greg is not the only newcomer to the village, as Helen, who has recently left Bournemouth after breaking up with her fiancé, moves into Lilly’s, an old 17th century cottage not far from Bluebell Cottage. She too is drawn into the past with strange dreams and paranormal experiences. It becomes clear that three hundred and sixty seven years on, a story of love and treachery becomes hopelessly entwined with the past and present.
THE OTHER DADDY
Two teenage girls have mysteriously disappeared from the small Scottish Orkney island of Eday. The island is in turmoil. It is as if they have vanished from the face of the earth without trace.
Eight years later in Cambridgeshire, seven year old Callum Thompson is trying to cope with his parents’ recent separation. He is acting strangely, constantly talking about his other daddy and his new friend Jeremy, believed by others to be fictional characters in Callum’s mind. Is this a case of a little boy with emotional problems or is this something more sinister? Jack wonders if his son is having some kind of encounter with the spirit world, but Louise, Callum’s mother is sceptical.
After a successful trip to an old stately home in Hampshire, where paranormal activity is caught on camera, Dr Andrew McGregor returns to his parapsychology unit in Cambridge to find himself faced with a new challenge. It doesn't take him long to realise that Callum Thompson's situation is far more than a paranormal investigation. What is the link between Callum and Eday?
Coincidences, strange happenings, twists and turns leads Andrew McGregor to the answers everyone has been desperately searching for, including what happened to the two missing girls from Eday.
