Helen Edwards grew up in a pit village in Tyneside in the post-war years, with her gran, aunties and uncles living nearby. She felt safe with them, but they could not protect her from her neglectful mother and violent father. Behind closed doors, she suffered years of abuse. Sometimes she talked to an imaginary sister, the only one who understood her pain. Jenny was adopted at six weeks and grew up in Newcastle. An only child, she knew she was loved, and with the support of her parents she went on to become a golfing champion, but still she felt that something was missing. . . Neither woman knew of the other's existence until, in her fifties, Jenny went looking for her birth family and found her sister Helen. Together they searched for the truth about Jenny's birth - and uncovered a legacy of secrets that overturned everything Helen thought she knew about her family. Happily, they also discovered that they were not just sisters, they were twins. Inspirational and moving, My Secret Sister by Helen Edwards and Jenny Lee Smith, is the story of two women brave enough to confront their past, and strong enough to let love not bitterness define them.

Roberta Robinson is on her death bed, with many secrets that can change a lot, once they have been released to the public. Her secrets are not only seismic to who she is, but to who she was, and to those who are related to her. Money, wealth, power and fame are what people know her for in the twilight of her days, but there is so much more to her story, that no one knows...Not only details, but people as well. My Secret Sister is a socially aware account of not only the life and ascent of Roberta Robinson, but also an inventory of a past that made who she became, extremely unlikely, and an inventory of everyone that played a role in her incredible story of survival, love, loss, and chasing a dream. At 80 years old, and not far from death, Roberta begins a reflection process, which takes her mind back to being a 5-year-old black girl, growing up in the 1960's. As her reflections progress, the puzzle pieces are put in place to form the picture of why she is so secretive, and how she accomplished all that she had in her life, by the time she was advanced in age. Along the way, there comes a choice that she has to make to either suffer a broken heart, or reach a dead end on her path forward to achieve her dreams. Driven by a pure heart, her love of country, family, and having a hero like Barbara Jordan to be inspired from, Roberta never gives up...Even if the cost is painful.

The secret double-life of Ruth Ellis and the Establishment cover-up that led to her unjust hanging Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, was convicted fifty years ago for shooting her lover David Blakely. The case became a notorious part of British criminal history and was turned into the film, Dance with a Stranger. The story that has been perpetuated ever since is that of a peroxide tart who killed in a fit of passion. Yet, crucial questions were left unasked in the original trial. Ruth Ellis's sister, Muriel Jakubait, knew her longest of all. She has never given up her search for justice. Now after fifty years she has decided to reveal the hard facts about their shared upbringing, and seek to piece together the full true story of her sister. As she is at pains to point out, the jealous killer tag has never been substantiated. This is a story of power, espionage, lies, loyalty, poverty, sex and betrayal. It suggests a third man may have pulled the trigger for the fatal shots. And that he belonged to a web of espionage into which Ruth Ellis fell long before the shooting. Above all, it indicates that Ruth was being run by Stephen Ward, at least a decade before his name became public in the Profumo Scandal. Muriel's motive is about more than proving her sister Ruth's innocence. It's about reclaiming the right to tell the story of her own family, stripped bare of the many tabloid myths that have accrued over the decades. She shows that Ruth was somebody damaged at a very early age - who strove to make something of herself, only to be caught up in something much bigger and end up paying with her life.
