Sunset on Golden Wings

Sequel to The Year the Swans Came

by

Sunset on Golden Wings continues the story of Maidy and Ruth, although three years have passed since the tragic events of the summer swans first visited the city.

Having swapped her dreams of escaping to sea in a tall-masted ship for an ocean-going liner, Maidy is on the way to New York, where Ruth, now a famous film star, is to be married. Promising Pappy to toss her sad memories overboard, this proves impossible, when a chance encounter with a passenger revives thoughts of Zande.

On her return, a job offer from Hans, to work in his art shop in Flambeau in France, brings Justine, a ballerina, and both his mistress and his patron, into Maidy’s life. But all too soon Ruth and Zande step out from the wings and reassume their dominance of events. Ruth re-awakens Hans’ boyhood passion for her, placing his relationship with Justine in jeopardy, and Zande?

'Sunset on Golden Wings' which will be published at the end of April, although it can be read as a stand alone, is actually the sequel to 'The Year the Swans Came' and also brings the five book sereies to a close.

The idea for the series happened in 2010 when I was visiting Holland to celebrate the publication of Running but it was three years before I completed the first draft of 'The Year the Swans Came'. Based on the legend, Leda and the Swan, following a suggestion made by the agent, Felicity Bryan, I also began writing The Click of a Pebble, Book 1 of the trilogy, Children of Zeus, which is about many of the same characters but at a differerent point in their lives. And whereas 'The Year the Swans Came' and 'Sunset on Golden Wings' are narrated by Maidy Bader, the trilogy is written in the 3rd person and details the lives of Yost, Zande and Tatania as they struggle to survive in a world that wants them dead.

Barbara Spencer

In 1967, considering herself to be destined for a life of mediocrity, Barbara Spencer hi-tailed it to the West Indies to watch cricket, the precursor to a highly colourful career spanning three continents in which she was caught up in riots, wars, and choosing Miss World. An award-winning children's author, over the past decade Barbara has been lucky enough to be invited to Booksignings at Waterstones throughout the Midlands and the south and west, and has visited dozens of primary and secondary schools. In 2017 Barbara decided to change horses in mid-stream and is now writing magical realism for adults and top teens.
