Publication date: - 29/10/2020 (To be confirmed)
PAM FISH really knows how to keep a story moving, and in Eight point Eight she presents a panaronic background and lots of emotional punch. Jude Morgan, author of Passion and the Taste of sorrow.
Eight point Eight is an exhilarating story based in Harrow, UK and Uttarkashi, India and tells the tale of four parts of the same family over a period of nineteen days, starting twenty days before Christmas. A grand family reunion is planned for the festivities.
Quite suddenly, an unprecedented incident takes Tina Rhodes, mum of four grown up children, to India unprepared for what devastation she might find. The journey was like none she could have imagined, nor was ever likely to experience again. She had no idea what to expect when she eventually reached the devastation, but she felt compelled to go there, to find her missing son Matt who was in India experiencing the terrors of being trapped in a disaster of catastrophic magnitude. His days buried in the rubble are woven into the story.
With another family tragedy to contend with Tina’s younger son Andy, travels to Athens to find his sister Sam, who yet again seems to have found herself in a dire situation that she had not thought through properly.
Meanwhile, Penny, the eldest daughter, stays at home to hold the fort with her gran, Tina’s mum, Mary. But is soon dealing with an ex-husband returning from prison. If this is not enough, Gran becomes seriously ill and is rushed to hospital.
As close as the family are, situations have led to them being separated unexpectedly, each encased in life changing situations. Will they all be able to free themselves of their restrictions and make the Christmas party that Tina had planned for so long?
Eight point Eight to be published at the end of October.

The Last Resort
A Saga spanning thirty years, with a generous helping of suspense and drama.
"Diane? Get back in the house, you'll drown out here." The familiar voice echoed from her past.
Trembling, both from the intensity of the storm and Peter’s sudden appearance, she turned and ran towards the house ahead of him, her emotions now revolving through happiness to anger – and back again. Typical, she thought crossly as he politely stood on the threshold. But, his intense blue eyes found hers.
As always, Peter was reading into her very soul, recognising her years of sorrow and despair. . . .
. . . their stories begin. Diane’s early years and later when Peter’s life tangled with hers. More than thirty years, are about to unfold and be laid bare.
Broken marriages; kidnap; abuse; attempted rape; a fight out of the black abyss of alcoholism and Peter’s staunch support from Linda, the child who entered his life like a guardian angel. Diane’s stories are woven through a bold tapestry of babies growing up, marriages, and the births of a second generation, whilst Peter’s are told against the spectacular backdrop of the Dolomites.
With Diane’s steadfast commitment to family life in England, always at odds with Peter’s passion for the freedom of a less conventional life in Italy, it appears they are destined to remain apart . .
'The Last Resort' has its share of thoughtful and dramatic scenes,
in which Pam's forte is her visual, descriptive writing. Jean Saunders, aka Rachel Moore.
Or by order from any branch of Waterstone's in the UK.
