Outlined a new novel last night. Based on the characters of Dr Stella Lambros and Tessa Lambros (they first appeared in the book Hidden Truths). This is the start of their life together and their journey that leads them to the events in Hidden Truths.
Dr Stella Lambros has spent the last two years mourning the death of her beloved husband who died on the Skra battlefield. The Great War claimed the love of her life. It’s time for her to reach out and help the people her Timothy was helping before the war.
Stella begins her internship at the Saint Gregori Mental Asylum in Athens where being a woman has it’s own challenges in a male dominated world. Conservative is not how you would describe Stella Lambros – outrageous in dress and demeanor. She’s a breath of fresh air in the wards filled with despair.
Against policy of not befriending the patients, Stella reaches out to a young woman, Tessa Mitsos, who is confined to the asylum, at her own request. Together they work towards finding the reason for Tessa’s extraordinary mental powers.
