Broken Cups

    Broken Cups is the beginning of a new adventure, although discerning readers will find the odd reference to characters they have come to know and love from the 'Voice from the Past' trilogy.

    It centres on the lives and loves of two friends who share a flat in Belfast and on a mysterious entry that one of them discovers in an old diary, something that threatens to destroy a very promising relationship.

    Pacy and character-driven, it will keep you guessing to the end.

    Broken Cups is again published by Matador . It is available for download as an ebook and also as a paperback from Amazon.

    Imogen Tomlinson has always been proud of her stable upbringing and longs for a family of her own. But just as she finds herself falling in love and begins to revel in the happiness she has craved for so long, her hopes are shattered by something she reads in a diary written by her mother, Joanna, over twenty years ago, something that shocks her to the core.

    Jillian Taylor-Scott has been Imogen's best friend since school. Now, sharing a flat, they both forge new relationships, whilst remaining close to each other and to their respective families. But what is Imogen hiding from Jillian? Why do the two families appear to shun each other? Some secrets are just too awful to reveal, even to a best friend.

    Maggie Redpath has never known family harmony. The product of a failed marriage, she is afraid to commit to her own boyfriend, worried that history might just repeat itself. When she and Jillian meet through a work project, they become good friends, unaware at first of a tenuous link to Imogen's past love life.

    Gertrude Cartwright is the colourful mainstay of her family. Grandmother to Grant, Rebecca, Robyn and Alastair as well as surrogate grandmother to Bradley Harrington, she has kept everyone happy through thick and thin. She welcomes both Jillian and Imogen with open arms. But what will happen when Joanna's secret is finally revealed?

    "Heather's particular skill is in showing us that many of the problems in present day families can be solved by love and understanding. She is able to make connections between a network of people, allowing us to know the characters in a variety of circumstances and to feel their pain and happiness."

    "The plot reaches a very satisfactory and pleasing denouement, but there is a cliff-hanger, promising another novel to follow."

    "I hope there's going to be a sequel!! I want to read more about Imogen and Grant and I loved Gertrude's character. I want to know what was in that letter!"

    "I didn't see that coming! I thought I had it worked out half-way through but ..."

    "A Brilliant book! I loved it."
