WHEN ANGELS LIE now available as an E-book
Mythica Publishing has made my When Angels Lie available to a very wide audience. The E-book can be bought at Mobipocket and most major outlets.
Love, hate, lust and betrayal. When Angels Lie is a dramatic and romantic story involving taboo love within the Anglican Church. The Reverend Paul Stringer intends keeping his love affair with his rural dean secret, but did not bargain for his ‘angel’ secretary, Angela, falling in love with him. Nor did he expect his charismatic lady organist to play such a powerful role in his life. The story is set within country parishes coping with the tensions of challenging situations and controversial changes. Dedicated and sensitive leadership is called for. But dramatic events, involving powerful and memorable characters, threaten both the relationship with his partner, and all that has been achieved during his ministry.
The book - When Angels Lie - is cleverly constructed and moves at a very good pace. There was urgency, on my part, to read on and on.

Hobson is a writer of the first class, able to build a story quickly and maintain excitement throughout the book. Her characters are full and multidimensional—at times, the reader is torn by compassion and empathy for one and then the other. Such is the making of a fine novel and a book well worth reading. It is unfortunate that books such as these, so worthy of recognition, go unheralded by the literary establishment. I, for one, give it “tens” across the board.

“…moves along at a good pace, while keeps the interest moving along nicely, and I found that I really did want to know what happened in the end.
Certainly the book could provoke a storm in the Church and make the general public look at the Anglican Church, its clergy, and its adherents with new eyes.”… Churchwarden
