Quote From The Book:

“Walking over to her bedside cabinet she pulled open the drawer and slid the frames in. They were dusty but soon she would pick them up again, clean them and have another look. Maybe she would shed a tear, maybe she would show a smile, but she would acknowledge him, and the times they shared. Soon.”

“Now she felt so different, a reminder of days so long ago when she had looked forward to each morning, seeking something new to do with each day, enjoying the liveliness and vibrancy of the fruit that life had to offer.”

Missing: The Disappearance of Sally-Anne


Have you ever been left behind?

How do you pick up the pieces of your life when you’re left alone? Who do you turn to when others are looking to you for help?

Liz Cornwell has been left, like so many, but with the inner determination and strength, she gained from a loving mother she does what she has to for her children. The toughest lesson she has learned is that she is as good as anyone, and deserves as much respect as anybody.

Coming to terms with starting again in life is the toughest road ahead, but one she refuses to give up on. The impossibility of remaining positive and showing belief in the face of loss and poverty, but no matter what she will not give up.

With each day that passes Liz looks out for her children and rebuilds their lives, all the while creating a new home for them. Along the way, she will meet Bill, the council worker with a glint in his eye, and Simon the kindly shopkeeper who reminds her of the best of us.

All the while, coping with life and simply managing to put food on the table, Liz still finds it in her heart to care for others and meets Mavis, the unusual woman who walks alone on the streets of Chester. Through this chance meeting, she will learn of Sally-Anne, a young child missing for so long, and the questions that remain about just what happened to her.

Missing: The Disappearance of Sally-Anne is a powerful story of one woman’s ongoing struggle to live a life with courage and decency while coming to terms with another woman’s loss. She will find out truths that should remain hidden, and through it discover things about herself she never believed possible.

Missing: the Disappearance of Sally-Anne is the follow up to the emotional roller-coaster of Liz Cornwell and her family as they struggle to overcome every obstacle and remain together.


Quotes from the book:

“As melancholy as she felt over such things she could never escape from the belief that she was an individual, someone entitled to her hopes and dreams, and that life would never truly end until it actually did. It was a hope she was born and raised with, but at the moment it felt just slightly hollow, as she closed the door to an empty home and silence which resonated with her thoughts.”

*

“As she stepped into the house it felt like stepping into the past, as if the house held all it memories in its walls. The carpets were thick and plush but old, bland colors washed away by time. The hallway was small, square in shape with white walls and a small brown table in one corner that held nothing. The air was a sweet mixture of flowers and mustiness, as if Mavis had tried to hide either its age or the fact that time had stood still inside with a wall of hidden flowers.”

Quote From The Book:

“Ethel was looking closely at him, feeling a delicate mixture of uncertainty and affection. She felt in a way that she hadn’t for so long, a kind of tingling warmth inside that made her want to laugh and cry at the same time.”

“He was holding onto a thin cane, one which until moments ago had been propping up his garden peas, but was now his ringmaster’s whip to ward off the ferocious lion. The lion in question was Champion, who had hold of some green netting and had been busy dragging it around.”

A sweet little dog went from being pampered and loved until something changed in his life, and out he went onto the streets. Arthur learned how to be wily and cunning, and survived, but couldn’t find anyone to love him, until he found his way under a little boy’s bed.

Then, the inevitable happened, discovered, shocked, surprised, amazed. A family finds a dog hidden under the bed, but what do they do? What would you do, if you found this loving, sweet little pooch hiding under your bed, shivering, tired, scared, and only wanting someone to love?

Would you give a dog a home? Would you open your arms, your heart and your home to them?

The Dog Under The Bed: What Happened Next, tells us just what did happen, when Stan, Nancy, Abigail and Billy find Arthur, hiding, looking out at them, his small eyes staring, watching to see their reaction.

Read on to see how they all adapt to each other, as Arthur has his first proper bath with his new family, kindly sharing it with them! Check out his antics as he runs amok in the house, always finding his way back to where he knows he belongs.

From Chaotic walks in the park, to snowball fights in the garden, from family teddy fights to madcap attempts to climb kitchen counters for food, Arthur lives it all as he finds out just what it is to be loved again.

Life for a new dog in a family is often difficult, and for this family it is no less, but through their love for one another they determine to overcome, and come together for the sake of a wonderful dog.

The Dog Under The Bed 3 is the loving conclusion to the series, as Arthur not only comes to terms with his new family, but finally confronts the past, ready for a loving future.

Filled with laughter, tears and joy, What Happened Next show us just why we love dogs so much.

Welcome Home Arthur, forever.

“Arthur leaped at the sausages, trying to grab one to gobble it up, as Billy did the same. It was a battle, where only the strongest would survive, and get a sausage. Billy grabbed at them quickly, giggling so much his sides hurt. Each time he tried to get another Arthur naturally grabbed at the same one, as if it were a pop up game where they needed a mallet to hit the mole before it disappeared”

“Arthur was a sensible dog, well trained, not inclined to do the wrong thing. Or so he thought, until he ran and jumped like a gazelle onto the large armchair in the corner. As he landed on it he bounced, like a child on a bouncy castle. He looked one way, then the other, as if he were a lion surveying his kingdom”

“Freedom clearly had a price, one that involved shivering and being lonely. As joyful as it might well be being able to run anywhere and do as he pleased, it was difficult to make a sensible case for anything other than warmth, a fully belly and being loved”

Often those left behind have no clue what happened, to their lives or the people they thought they would spend the rest of their lives with

This is a tale of how one woman faces up to the realities of her life, where control was something she had long forgotten. Liz learns to cope and changes with events, even as they threaten to overwhelm her and her children

Anybody can change, for good or bad, but how we deal with this change, and how we transform, compromise and adapt determines how we succeed in our lives ahead

One woman steps up to the challenge, facing a never ending barrage of debt, loss and heartache. She will not give in, will not stop fighting for what she believes in, no matter what it might cost her

An Emotional roller-coaster ride as a family find their lives falling apart. From loss to debt, to homelessness, and one woman’s struggle to hold it all together.


Quotes from the book:

“Everything seemed to pass in a blur, as she dropped change everywhere for the bus, then struggled to find enough to pay her way, then struggled again to find a suitable empty seat even though the bus was empty. The roads and fields outside were like her mind, leaving no impression, as if they were unreal. The journey into town felt like a dream, that she was drifting along, no longer in her own body, totally out of control.”

*

“The skies were ever white, signifying the bitter cold outside, and the onset of winter. Leaves had long fallen to the ground, as plants and trees had withered away and flowers died back to black. It was as if her life had diminished subtly, and everything around her reflected that, decaying and turning to ash, becoming nothing more than dusty memories of a better time. She wondered of those times, trying to imagine a happier moment, but for all she did, they were always tainted by something bad happening, however minor.”

Quotes From The Novel:

“Wild seeds and flower elements pervaded the air, like frosty particles that never melted. White speckles floated around, sitting in the backdrop of an increasingly hazy day. It looked as if nature was exploding, all awash with colour and movement, a truly spectacular and memorable day. One that they would both look back on with fondness.”

“The skies were grey, and where before the wind had been warm and so full of light, everything around now seemed dark, as if he had entered a new place where such things no longer existed. He looked around as the rain fell ever harder, soaking his fur, dripping into his eyes. If he had tears to cry, they would have been washed away by the rain.”

“The field seemed to be a source of life, as butterflies flittered around and insects filled the skies darting all over. Dying wild flowers let loose embers of petals and seeds, their last natural attempt to spread and pollinate. The place was like a quilt of life, where one could jump straight into it and wrap oneself in all the beauty of creation.”

Two Dogs In Africa

A lighthearted revisiting of my time there, and most importantly how I came to love these two amazing dogs. A loving exploration of two funny and wonderful dogs, Sammy and Shrink.

From spider bites to snake attacks, from cheeky dogs arguing over whose bed it was, to unwanted baths and days in the never ending sun. This tells the story of how I first came to love dogs so much, and how together we shared some amazing experiences, whether good or bad, they were always by my side.

Two Dogs In Africa is a story of adventure, understanding, discovery and love. Share our experience of life in Africa, and all the fun that we enjoyed – together.

Quotes From The Book:

“As my eyes became accustomed to it all, I could see so many flickers of light, so many fires and flame lights, that it seemed an ocean of stuttering luminescence, with people blurring the reality of it. I wondered if what I saw wasn’t real, that I was sick again, and in the blink of an eye I would wake up to find myself in my bed. That never happened. I could feel the soft air against my bare arms and face, but most of all there were a myriad of smells, all kinds of food cooking, sweetcorn, potatoes, some kind of meats, everything. I knew these people had next to nothing, but through their own hard work and ingenuity they had found a way to live, and survive even in these harsh conditions. A part of me wanted to feel awful for them, but they didn’t deserve my pity, they got my respect, for what they achieved every day in life.”

“It felt as if I had wandered into someone’s private place, somewhere they had hidden and only they could go, that I had wandered down the rabbit hole and I was stealing a look at things no mere human should ever see. I felt privileged to even be in the place, and wanted more of it.”

“I could see an endless blanket of stars. If only I could just lift up and float into it, I could leave behind all of my problems, become the dream that I so wanted, the freedom to live without fear, not of what there was around me, but of the future itself.”

“Day to light felt like two different lives, that I were different people, and no experience was shared. When I laid down to sleep at night I would feel such a range of negative emotions, but in the morning I would come alive, like a newborn bird wanting to sing. My skin tingled, my eyes felt so wide awake that I could see colours and light in such a way I never had before. I wondered if my soul wandered in places in my dreams that reinvigorated my essence, that strengthened me in unseen ways for the day ahead, that I might have purpose, for myself and others.”

Unknown to Stan, Nancy, Abigail and Billy, this little doggy has hidden himself well, and so begins his adventure to stay hidden, for once warm and safe, snug under the bed.

“Carefully he went, not wishing to be discovered, but also because he didn’t want to spoil the little boy’s dreams, envious of being so happy, able to sit and allow his mind to wander off to something amazing, without a care in the world of it ending. Such was the life of a child.”

“The air blowing up was cool and fresh, a constant reminder of the life he had lived, offering a kind of freedom to do as he pleased, but still it came at a cost. Unable to ignore the call any more he crept down the stairs, constantly on the lookout for trouble. Light filtered through from the lounge door and the kitchen, but everywhere else helpfully was dark. Feeling even bolder he continued, down again, until he stood on the last step, just able to peer out. He could hear Billy running and playing, enjoying himself so much. It was quite dark out, but the snow brought a vibrance to everything, offering an illumination combined with the grace of winter which no other season could quite provide.”
