An Army nurse’s experiences on the island of Corregidor during WWII are shared through a series of letters that she writes to and receives from her mother, her best friend and her former high school teacher. Because of the war, friendships change, courtships go amiss and family bonds stress and strengthen. A spiritually uplifting, emotionally touching war story, all the more intense because it is told by women. Funny, moving and poetic.

This comedy parodies every English mystery play ever written but with a decidedly American flair. Miss Maple, a dowager with a reputation for “clever” weekend parties, invites a group of detective writers to Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island, where they are to impersonate their fictional characters. She has arranged several amusing incidents which are all fun and games until there is a real murder. She then offers a reward to the “detective” who can bring the killer to justice. This zany assortment of would-be sleuths trip over clues and each other on the way to unmasking the killer.
