In 1842, Catriona, unwilling to be left behind by husband Dougal McDonnell, disguises herself as a boy to work for the Hudson's Bay Company. Within a few days of landing at York Factory on Hudson's Bay, Cat is assigned to work at the trading post, but Dougal is ordered west to Fort Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest - abandoning Cat. Rugged terrain and thousands of miles separate them. How will Cat survive alone? Will she and Dougal be reunited? In RIVERS OF STONE, Cat undertakes a formidable journey during the fur trade era across Canada and the Oregon territory in her quest to find Dougal. Along the way, she befriends voyageurs, Cree, and artist Paul Kane, who travels on behalf of the Hudson's Bay Company. Cat and Dougal were minor characters in STANDING STONES, Book 1, which introduced the McDonnell family as they struggled with the Clearances in Scotland. YEARS OF STONE, Book 2, tells the story of Mac McDonnell and his sweetheart, Deidre, after he was transported to prison in a land over the seas, Van Diemen's Land, Australia. While each book can be read alone, this compelling series about the McDonnell clan, immerses the reader into what life was like 150 years ago, when families, often split apart, struggled to shape new lives with few resources. Challenged by fearsome nature and nearly overwhelming obstacles, they held true to their vision of a new life in a new land.

River Stone genre is magic realism. His archetype is a reluctant hero. His main objective is to become immortalised by successfully creating a new genre of art. Impeding him is a supernatural gift he’s been given, which he defies; to take away lives by a force of arcane energy when he lays his hands on recipients. He doesn’t want to be known as the angel of death. When seeing the Eagle Man, River is given another spiritual gift; eternal life. It is about psychology verses the metaphysical world and fundamentalism verses atheism. He is an environmental activist with the L.L.E, an international, secret society foundation. This organisation assigns him to join the Army Services as a reprographic soldier, to be an undercover agent to gather secret satellite information for their cause. At first, he opposes the assignment, however, his love for the philosophy Hintism and its mentor Lord Va who fatalistically manipulates River’s existence until he owns nothing. This is a similar scenario to Dulouz (how River sees himself), testing the boundaries of nonconformity within society’s dictating constraints, and freedom from materialistic constructs. Through the mere exhaustion caused by his disconnection to the framework of social structure, and failing his desire to find the antidote for his inspirational death inflicted by drudgery, the eternal collective mundane conscious and subconscious of human existence. And, dealing with a curse, jinx, hex and damnation; suffering schizophrenia (un-institutionalised) when experiencing paranormal episodes and extreme poverty...He is finally coerced ethically, socially and financially in joining the Army. The Army doesn’t hinder his artistic drive, or, inspiration. The denouement is devastating in respect to his obsession with art, though his true destiny is revealed. The themes are ideological spiritual beliefs. Secret societies. vigilantism. Art, philosophies and the paranormal.

The River Trent swells from a mere trickle in North Staffordshire into a mighty tidal waterway. For many people it marks the point where the 'North', region of real ale, flat caps and even flatter vowels, begins. A natural communication route, the Trent Valley provided sites for early human settlement. Archaeologists have found primitive boats up to 3,500 years old. For the settlements that grew up along its banks the river was a vital resource. Medieval hedge weirs funnelled fish into nets and the power of the current was harnessed to drive mill wheels. Wool, coal, lead, corn, stone, beer, salt, cheese, earthenware and iron goods were shipped downriver, and boats returned laden with groceries, consumer goods, furs, timber and pig iron. Shipping declined in the 20th century, and neglect and industrial exploitation left much of the upper river polluted and sterile. In recent years, however, a more sensitive approach to river management has transformed the water quality, seeing otters and salmon returning. Carefully selected illustrations that celebrate the river's journey from moorland to the Humber Estuary, add to this beautifully written book's appeal.
