Preventing Childhood Obesity





TheSign of the Rose by John Morey

Book 1 of the 4-Book series - a romantic adventure saga spanning nearly a century from the late 1800's.

Beginning in Ireland just after the Great Famine, we trace the journey of a young Romani couple fleeing the tyranny by the English to - of all places - the Westcountry, in search of lost family. Surviving a perilous crossing, a highwayman and, after picking up a charmed Hanoverian stallion on the way - their lost family - they find their way from Tavistock to the Midlands where they are swept along by the energy and opportunity of the vibrant new industrial age - itself not without risks.

The ending mixes tragedy with mysticism and a feel-good resolution, leaving you with a natural curiosity for events to follow in Books 2-4.

Book 1 is free for subscribers of Kindle Unlimited but, for the next few days, FREE TO ALL in eBook format.
