    Summary

    "The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war."

    In Soviet Russia, the year 1980, renowned opera singer Christine Daae learns just how painfully, horribly true those words could be when her husband Erik, a discharged KGB spy returns from his commission to Afghanistan shattered beyond repair. In their world of tragic love and dauntless devotion, where nothing is as it seems and all is so easily torn apart, these fragile and lost souls must learn each other once more, to mend what has been broken before everything is lost forever.

    —A tale of love, loss and healing. Set in late 1970s to early 1980s, centring around the Soviet Union's war with Afghanistan.

    Summary

    John Watson, WWII army doctor, is injured in the line of duty and can no longer wield a scalpel. Sherlock Holmes, Britain's best code-breaker, is side-lined by his own devastating injury. In a work inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden," the two men must find meaning and purpose in a world which seems to have taken away all they hold most dear.

    But of course, it really hasn't.

    Summary

    [CONTAINS MAJOR ENDGAME SPOILERS]

    Everything was orange. A soft, deep orange that glowed from an unseen source and filled him up with warmth. His fears, anxieties, pain—all of it was gone. There was nothing but the warmth, the orange, the shallow water beneath his feet, and the figure walking slowly toward him.

    Summary

    There are people who believe that romantic connections are the province of fate and destiny, the result of an alignment of constellations and conditions that bring two people together. Others tend to discuss falling in love as the product of rational decisions that acknowledge attraction and compatibility. Some people, however, seem to think these two seemingly-opposite perspectives are really just two sides of the same coin. Sometimes, after all, destiny just requires that two people make a single choice.

    Summary

    A well-designed house is a living thing. It is skin of glass and bones of wood. It stands to shelter and protect. It takes the wash of rain, endures every whip and ruffle of wind. The bright of the sun bleaches its bones slowly but does not weaken them.

    The inhabitants of this house have numbered:

    one, lonely;

    then two, loving;

    and now—presently—one again, alone and fearful.

    His name is George.
