8 Paranormal Mysteries!
I’m excited to announce I was invited to be in an anthology with seven other great authors. I’ve included Dog Days of Voodoo. If you’ve read it already, I hope you pick up the set to check out the rest of the authors. Eight full-length paranormal books are up for grabs. Happy reading.
A Full Five Stars for this Impressive Book.
Broken Branches is a book by M Jonathan Lee published by Hideaway Fall Publishing.
I don’t often hand out a full five stars unless I find the story gripping, the dialogue honest, and the plot involved enough to keep me interested. In Broken Branches by M Jonathan Lee I I found all three.
The story opens up with the atmospheric description of a cursed tree. The cloying branches reaching towards a storybook type cottage but inside it is far from the happy family set up. There is something remaining unspoken between the main characters, we’re confronted by Rachel’s distance from Ian. He believes that if he solves the mystery of his family’s curse then he can reach her.
Whilst we don’t see much from Rachel’s point of view during the story it is in a way mirroring Ian’s own separation from his wife. If this was intentional on the part of the author then it certainly was a masterstroke. There were moments in the story that left you gasping and holding your breath as you read on. The suspense and moments of dread increased as Ian moved closer to the answers he needed.
If you want a story that will keep you guessing until the last pages, a creepy read filled with ethereal touches then let Broken Branches reach out for you…
Charlie Gard is an 11-month-old baby suffering from a rare genetic condition currently on life support at Great Ormand Street Hospital (GOSH) in London. Doctors have gone o court to appeal for the child’s life support to be removed and allowing him to die peacefully. His parents fought and appealed the decision, even taking the case to the European Courts. Currently, it is going through another appeals procedure, as an American doctor has offered an experimental treatment. People from all over the globe have become involved from President Trump to the Pope.
Today the news was full of how the staff working at GOSH are receiving death threats over the Charlie Gard case, I’ve been reading up on it. The poor child in question is going to die and it is now a case of when. GOSH have been to court several times to say that now is enough and it’s time to let the baby die in peace.
There isn’t a parent on the planet that wouldn’t fight for their child and credit to the parents of Charlie Gard for their fight but now is their time to look at the whole picture.
An infamous doctor in America wants to try an EXPERIMENTAL nucleoside therapy that he cannot guarantee would even work, let alone if it did would only offer a 10% chance of improvement in Charlie Gard’s health.
Ten percent. Let that sink in. Even if it works it won’t prevent the eventual death of Charlie Gard, who present medical condition include: MDDS starving Charlie Gard’s muscles, kidneys, and brain of the energy needed to function. Because of his epileptic encephalopathy, Charlie also suffers from frequent seizures and has extensive, irreversible brain damage at both the structural and cellular level. Does this sound like a life you want to prolong?
There are only two reasons why this American doctor has become involved, notoriety and money – Charlie Gard’s parents have raised £1.5 million to pay for the treatment.
People can sit on either side of the argument and throw stones at the other but here’s what I think you should do, just stop and think about Charlie. Not the parents, not the American doctor, not even GOSH. Just think about Charlie because if he were your son would you want him to keep suffering?
