Voices by Janice Law( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are persistent whispers from the past, growing increasingly stronger. Ever since Leslie suffered a miscarriage several months ago, she’s felt as though there’s more to her childhood than she understands—or can remember. Why are there no photographs of her as a child? Why can’t she remember anything before the age of five? On the job at a local paper, Leslie finds a small human-interest story on the wire service: Ruth Eden, three years old, kidnapped from her Connecticut home twenty-five years ago. It resonates with her in a way that can’t be just coincidence. Memories of a meadow, a car, a sense of trouble brewing and a summer-long ride. They haunt Leslie until she decides she must seek out the Edens and find out the truth. But when Leslie finally locates the man who may or may not be her father, she finds that there is no such thing as an easy answer. Janice Law’s poignant novel asks the reader to consider some fascinating questions. Which is more important—who you are now or who you were then? Can we ever forgive the people who’ve lied to us—especially when it changed the course of your entire life? And what is a family—a biological connection or a group of people that loves you despite the costs?
The prisoner of the Riviera by Janice Law( )

"Peace has come to England and the blackout is over, but the gloom has yet to lift from London. One night, leaving a gambling club where he has run up a considerable tab, the young painter Francis Bacon, accompanied by his lover, sees a man gunned down in the street. They do what they can to stanch the flow of blood, but the Frenchman dies in the hospital. Soon afterward, Bacon receives a strange offer from the club owner: He will erase Bacon's debts if the painter delivers a package to the dead man's widow, Madame Renard, on the Riviera. What gambler could resist a trip to Monte Carlo? After handing over the parcel, Bacon learns that Madame Renard is dead -- and the striking young woman who accepted the delivery is an imposter. The Riviera may be lovely, but in 1945, its sun-drenched beaches can be just as dark as the back alleys of London"--Page 4 of cover

Francis Bacon, a young, gay Irishman, finds love and danger in the shadows of Weimar Berlin.

Francis Bacon was having a ball in Berlin--until his uncle Lastings disappeared, leaving Francis alone, broke, and wanted by the German police as well as the burgeoning Nazi party for a political murder he didn't commit. Luckily, for a young painter still learning his craft, there's no better place to find refuge than the cafés of Paris. In the City of Lights, Francis can perfect his French, complete his education, and--if he's lucky--escape with his life
Mornings in London by Janice Law( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Bacon awakes in a four-poster bed with a punishing hangover and a naked footman beside him. The setting and company mean he's in the country, and that spells disaster for an up-and-coming artist whose natural habitat is the nightclubs and back alleys of swinging Soho. But he's put aside his distaste for the pastoral life for the sake of his favorite cousin, Poppy, a spirited young debutante who's committed the biggest blunder a deb can make: She's fallen in love with Freddie Bosworth -- and must be rescued at all costs. Bosworth is a cad, an accused blackmailer with a love for Mussolini and dark secrets too terrible to tell. Fortunately, Poppy comes to her senses, breaking the engagement, and Francis thinks their troubles are over. But when the cousins take a walk through the manor grounds the next day, they find a handsome young man in a pin-striped suit lying dead in the grass. Freddie's throat has been cut, and Francis's life is on the line." -- From back cover
