In the Greater Scheme of Things


In the Greater Scheme of Things is the page-turning sequel which reintroduces us to some of the characters we first encountered in A Voice From the Past. When Francine Martin applies for the position of nanny with the popular Leclerc family, she is looking for much more than a new job. She wants a whole new life. But what is she running from? Why is she so determined to cut all ties with the people she once loved so dearly? Is Francine even her real name? Caught off guard one day, not realising that she is in the company of her employers’ family and friends, she reveals that she is actually called Frankie. Evie O’Sullivan is trying to rebuild her life following the breakdown of her ten-year marriage to Liam. Desperately lonely, she too finds solace in the workplace and tries to remain positive for the sake of her young daughter. In the Greater Scheme of Things introduces new characters, new situations and new locations but ultimately brings us back to some unresolved issues from Heather’s debut novel, A Voice from the Past. This family drama will be enjoyed by readers of contemporary romance fiction and those interested in the psychology of relationships. Maggie O’ Farrell, Lisa Jewell, Jill Mansell, Emily Barr and Carole Matthews have all influenced Heather’s writing style and creativity.

'Broken Cups' is Heather's fourth novel and hopefully the beginning of a new series. Her previous three books make up a trilogy of romance and mystery.'A Voice from the Past' in 2013 was followed by 'In the Greater Scheme of Things' in 2014 and 'Blood is Thicker' completed this family saga in 2015.
