Today’s guest is Jan Selbourne

Thank you, Cathy for having me today.

After months of drought and devastating bush fires in Australia, Mother Nature turned on her taps and the rain fell – and fell. We were so glad to say goodbye to summer and welcome autumn with cooler nights and pleasant days. However, this relief has been overshadowed by the Corona virus affecting the whole world.  I’m sure this Easter will be very quiet for everyone, no matter where we live. All I can say is please at home as much as you can, and if you are working, stay safe. Call family and friends, email and Skype so we don’t feel so isolated and we will get through this together.  Of course, as an author, I’ll recommend escaping reality with a book, and I’d like to introduce my latest – The Woman Behind the Mirror

Selbourne tells of determination to live in The Woman Behind the Mirror.

Jan Selbourne’s The Woman Behind the Mirror tells of a woman alone and desperate to survive however she must, at the start of the American Revolution.


 Betrothed by her father to a man twice her age, Sarah Forsythe does the unthinkable—she escapes her arranged marriage and runs away with the son of a Methodist minister. Not to Gretna Green, to colonial America—the New World. For Sarah, a “new world” of broken promises, abandonment, poverty and shame. Around her, the American Revolution is simmering, and the siege of Boston worsens by the day. As British soldiers seek out traitors and treason, a desperate Sarah breaks open a safe looking for cash. Instead, she finds a box holding Bank of England documents. Through willpower, bitter determination, and lying through her teeth, Sarah manages to make her way home to England. What she doesn’t know is that two men follow, and they will do anything to claim those documents.

Bank investigator Neil McAlister faces an almost impossible task—to determine the true owner of the documents by deciding who is lying. Most of all, as danger creeps ever closer, he needs to know who wants the secretive, beautiful Sarah dead.
