For the Love of Rosie By Peter Rogerson
eBook (PDF): $1.97
This is a strange love story because it deals with puppy love and its possible rebirth in old age. It’s like this. Walter fell in love with Rosie when he was a teenager, but the second world... More > war came along and they drifted apart. Things happened and their lives, once set on a course that was almost likely to lead to them spending their lives together, went along different routes. It is a simple story and I’ve called it a romance but it isn’t a traditional romance. It deals with love, a deep and abiding love that is stronger than any other, but not in the man-meets-woman-marries-woman way. There is a wedding, but not the kind recognised by Authority, but it is acknowledged by time, which is far more satisfying. There is friendship, blood-brother friendship, and half-remembered playing times in the old copse. And there are tragedies, the war, loss, and death. There’s a lot that can happen in a lifetime, and Walter Flint decides when he is in his eighties to remember all of it.< Less

HER BODICE RIPPED FROM SIDE TO SIDE By Peter Rogerson
Paperback: $12.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Set in no particular niche in history but occupying a unique and unreal place of its own, this story was written for the fun of writing and for no other reason. The cover photograph, to make the... More > point, was taken by me during a trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius and pre-dates everything in the story by what can only be called centuries. When Charles Dickens wrote his vastly superior novels they were published in periodicals, with queues awaiting the publication of each chapter and the magazines selling in huge quantities. This book was written in much the same way, but published on a website, and the queues were very much less in evidence.< Less

The conclusions, though, are the essentially the same.< Less
