Stella and Rose PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Stella and Rose free pdf From the shattered streets of postwar London to the crumbling grandeur of a decaying mansion overlooking a West Country town- from a remote village with a quirky inhabitant to a fetid wintry dock where a broken man contemplates suicide, 'Stella and Rose' is a collection of short stories with no central theme, except, perhaps, one of hope. The title story, 'Stella and Rose', tells the story of two sisters struggling to survive in postwar London, and the unusual approach that one of them takes to achieve it. 'The Painted Door' is a tongue-in-cheek tale of two handymen - father and son - and the opportunity of a lifetime. The third story, 'Why Me?', on the face of it, is about a man taking a stroll with his dogs on the common one night - but there is much more to it than that. 'Out of the Ashes' begins with a man who has lost everything standing in despair on a wintry dock, contemplating a cold, watery end. The final tale, 'Rutter's Reject' is a Rutter story. There have already been three novels about Detective Chief Inspector Julie Rutter. This is an addition to that canon.

About David Waine

David Waine was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, in 1949. He is the youngest of three brothers, all of whom went on to become teachers like their father. It was during his teaching career that he developed an interest in writing, initially plays, and his adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' was performed at the Cockpit Theatre in London (the forerunner of Shakespeare's Globe) as part of the Globe Theatre restoration in 1991. He took up novel writing after leaving the profession, and his first published work, 'The Planning Officers' appeared in 2011. His major works include the two epic fantasy trilogies, 'A King's Head' and 'A Queen's Heart' as well as his series of crime thrillers, the 'Rutter Books': 'Chained in Time', Rutter's Reunion' and 'Relapse'. He is also the author of a guide for new writers, 'The Author's Manual' and several short stories. Website: www.davidwaine.net
