‘I never shoot a man unless there is no other choice.’
The motto of Thelonia Jones, deputy Marshall, makes perfect sense in the silver-mining mountains of Colorado. But back in Victorian England, hoping to settle the debts of her half-brother Cadell, Thelonia finds much that bewilders her. Why has her wealthy stepfather abandoned his mansion to die alone in a rundown cottage by the sea? Who is the strange little girl who brings seagulls and sick people back to life? And why has the owner of the Greatest Freakshow on Earth followed her halfway around the world? For all her ease around matters of life and death, even Thelonia will be surprised by just how high the stakes are about to get. They say the past always catches up with you. For Thelonia Jones, that means literally.
Epiphany and Martha are sisters with a stage mediumship act in Edwardian London. When they are asked to give a private reading at the home of Lady Adelia Lyward to find out the truth about her brother’s death, Martha must face up to her past. For two years ago, her affair with Lord Rafe Lyward ended in pregnant disgrace, and her attempted suicide in the River Thames. But there is more at stake than Martha’s anonymous return, for Epiphany – using her contact with the spirit world – must bear the burden of restoring the equilibrium, not just to the Lywards but to her sister and ultimately to herself.

One 5* review of Equilibrium on Amazon.com says, “a simple story…made rich by its psychological depth, evocative writing and the calm, apparently all-seeing, presence of the aptly-named Epiphany. Highly recommended for readers of literature, historical fiction and metaphysical fiction.” Another 5* review on Amazon.co.uk describes the writing as “original, poignant, illuminating”. Lector’s Books recently described it on Amazon.com as ‘capitaviting’.
