The New Book - Francesca Pascal

The third novel in the trilogy is 'Francesca Pascal. It's written from a woman's perspective. I found that pretty hard as I've lived with women all my life but still don't understand them. Writing from a perspective where one has to put oneself into a female role betrays all one's weaknesses. The storyline is loosely built upon what happened to Lise Lesevre, a resistance worker who was captured by Klaus Barbie towards the end of the war. Yes, it is a harrowing account. Yes it is interspersed with action which is the part of my writing I like best (see Galdir I and II).

Missing child.

Another missing child. Kidnapped, stolen away. Like you, I feel deeply for the parents and family.
What kind of people would do such a thing? It is incumbent upon society to be vigilant. We live in a world where evil seems to be rife, yet simple measures to keep children safe seem elusive.
I realise now how lucky I've been to have had four living, healthy children but I have a feeling it is because of a degree of healthy paranoeia.
Small children trust adults. If they have happy lives where they trust the adults around them, they are doubly trusting.
