WALKING WITH ANGELS SERIES
BY MARY D. BROOKS
Coming Soon – 2016
Walking With Angels – a journey of loss, discovery of hope, love and finding angels where you least expect them.
Walking With Angels is a series based on the characters of Dr Stella Nikas-Lambros and Theresa “Tessa” Mitsos. It’s a historical lesbian romance set during the early 20th Century (1917+) with supernatural/paranormal elements.
The characters first appeared in the Intertwined Souls Series third novel Hidden Truths.
Dr Stella Nikas-Lambros has spent the last two years mourning the death of her beloved husband Timothy on the battlefields of France. The war is still raging and Stella wants to continue the work her husband started with shell shocked soldiers and the mentally ill. She begins her internship at the Saint Gregori’s Insane 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 Nikas-Lambros– outrageous in dress and demeanor. She’s a shock to both doctors and patients alike. She’s a breath of fresh air in the wards filled with despair.
Theresa “Tessa” Mitsos is a young woman who is confined to the insane asylum, at her own request. She’s not insane and she’s not demon possessed as many believe. Tessa can see visions of the future; visions that haunt the young woman of things yet to come. Wanting to find a cure for her mental illness, Tessa is prepared to do everything she can to achieve that goal. She doesn’t want to see the future, she doesn’t want to move objects with her mind. She wants to be a normal girl; fall in love, have children and lead an ordinary life. We don’t always get what we want and for Tessa Mitsos, there is nothing ordinary about her.
Against policy of not befriending the patients, Stella reaches out to Tessa and a friendship is born. A friendship that leads to more than they imagined. Together they work towards finding the reason for Tessa’s extraordinary paranormal powers.
It’s a journey of loss, discovery, love and finding angels where you least expect them.
