About the Book

During part I of 'Ordinary People', we have been introduced to the leading players who reside in the village of Middlewapping, and whom we meet again here, to see how their lives, loves and relationships are developing. During much of part II, however, centre stage is taken up by another young lady, who's name is Victoria Tillington, only daughter to the Lord and Lady of Middlewapping Manor. One morning she takes it upon herself to walk the family dogs into the village; the morning itself is of little significance, but her action eventually sets off a chain of events which nobody in this apparently sleepy backwater of England would have imagined. Victoria's life is about to crash; to be broken on the rocks of her loneliness, and she comes to see the village as perhaps her last hope of redemption; a way back to a happier life. And waiting in the wings is another person; somebody whom she has not seen or heard from for over ten years, and the only person that she has ever really loved. In the end it takes the death of two people to set in motion something which could be her only salvation, and dark forces are brought into play in order for this to become possible. For in part II of our tale we are introduced to another character whom we have yet to encounter; we are about to meet Rebecca.

About the Author

Phil Boast was born and lived his formative and early middle years in the south of England, before moving to Sulawesi, Indonesia, a little over ten years ago. Here he built and now runs a tourist lodge, mostly for SCUBA divers. His entry into the literary world was via an autobiographical work written with his partner, Paula, entitled 'Bahowo Lodge, an Indonesian Affair', which gives an account of their first years in Indonesia, after which Phil got the 'writing bug', sat down one day and wrote the first words of 'Ordinary People'. Living away from ones' native country can give a different perspective, and whilst all of the characters encountered in the books are fictional, he has drawn inspiration from the people and the way of life which he had known or observed in his early life. Having completed parts one and two of 'Ordinary People', in which the reader is introduced to the main characters in the saga, and whilst each of the books is self contained, he found that the people still had more to do and say, and at the time of writing there are four published books in the series, and part five is work in progress. After all, when is a story really finished?
