This book has a timely message as the UK attempts to struggle out of the chaos of Brexit. It asks the question, should the majority carry the vote? If the answer to that question is yes then we have a lot to consider. Do our leaders always serve us well? Have they got our interests before their own? Should we just follow like sheep? The author asks some searching questions and finds some disturbing answers. This is a book that needs to be read – before it is too late.


“When I started to write this, the thought that was the uppermost in my mind is how our leaders are misleading us all. As I said right at the beginning, we have been guilty in the past of trusting blindly the leaders and those in authority over us, just because they are in the position they are in. Now when we see what is happening in the UK, in America and in many other places in the world, perhaps we realise that if we choose a blind man to lead us, then our world will turn into darkness. Do we really know what people are thinking? Do we really know that we’re not being fed poison drip by drip, so that our hearts and minds are changed?

This is not a time for leaders who have selfish ambitions. What we need in our lives are servant leaders, not those who place themselves in power over us as lords. There is only one Lord, and that is the Lord God, and with him caring for us, there is no need for us to follow blindly in ways that may not be good for us. God has a plan for you, and he will be the one who will guide your destiny if you trust in him. You can be very much less certain of what will happen to you if you put your trust in human beings.

Now it is time for us to take back the power to ourselves. I’m not suggesting that we use violence to take over the reins of power. With God as our Guide, we need to find a way to change the world in a peaceful and quiet way, and a way that is validated by goodness, fairness, and the desire to have all people treated equally. A movement has started in the area of climate change, where frequent demonstrations, many including children taking the day off school, to make a difference in the world that they will inherit. This is the kind of change that we need, and we also need to do what we know is good for us, and that is aligned with integrity on Christ-like grounds.”

Eric has a miserable childhood in a violent, drunken family in a tough London housing estate. He compensates by looking for perfection. For him, this means worldly success in a diplomatic career as far away from his childhood as possible. His single-minded ambition comes at a price. It makes him leave his childhood sweetheart Katie behind, since he knows that she can’t keep up with him. Their ways part. Eric marries an upper-class woman and becomes an Ambassador. However, Katie and he never quite lose touch. After his wife’s death Eric and Katie come together again. There is action and pace, fun and sadness, a huge variety of life experiences and a sense of providence and redemption.


“Katie cried herself to sleep. The next morning she woke up with a heavy head and a terrible anguish. The worst had happened to her. Eric did not want her. He was not going to marry her. She felt as if the floor had fallen from under her feet. She could not fathom it. He was not going to marry her because it would make her unhappy. That just wasn’t true. She might not have understood everything, but as she knew she made him happy, of course happiness would have followed in a marriage. She would not have demanded anything; she was content for him to rule the roost. He knew better anyhow.

There had to be some hidden reason for him not to want to marry her. She knew and felt that he loved her. Was it perhaps something connected to those deep, dark moods of which she had the odd glimpse on the occasions when he had got drunk in her company? The depth of those dark feelings had frightened her. She realised that she knew only patches of his character and what drove him on.

To the world he was jolly and superficial. What had he wanted? Now that she thought about it, Katie remembered how at the beginning he had tried to interest her in history, art and music, but seeing that she did not have the same enthusiasm, he had given up on that. He had tried to teach her card games, but she had no card sense, and it had had to be given up.”

A cultural book, which tells the story about the relationship between two best friends in a struggle for survival in the forest, written in both English and Portuguese



About the Book:

 The Hunger in the Forest series of books represents a culture and way of life that children may not be familiar with. This first story on the series, Fuuuurrrrr n’bum, teaches important life lessons to children whilst telling them that life is not all roses and a happy ending, but if you learn certain things like ‘listening & following instructions’, then you’ll do great in life.



About the Author:

Rosa Brandao is of African descent.  Being an African is one of the richest benefits as a black woman in society. This gave Rosa the best childhood she could ever imagine.  Her imagination as a child has empowered her to create this magical world that she is so eager to share with everyone and especially with her son; the inspiration that made it all possible.

Excellent children’s story from African cultural written in both English and Portuguese

31 May 2019 – Published on

“I read this children’s book to my two children, and they loved it! There is a hunger in the forest, and the wolf, rabbit and others need to be creative and crafty in order to fill their bellies.

This story reminded me of the Grimm Brothers’ tales which are more realistic than Disney’s fairy tales in teaching important life lessons to children, painting a picture of the real world that can often be difficult and challenging, but if you listen properly, pay attention to detail, focus on what you want to achieve and reach for it, and so on, you’re likely to be more successful in navigating your way through life.

I also like the fact that this story clearly draws from Portuguese culture, as the author (Rosa) says that she was told this story when she was a child, and she wants to share it more widely as the book is cleverly written both in English and in Portuguese, and beautifully illustrated with rich, vibrant colours, reflecting the African cultural values and experiences which imbue this story.”

About the Book:

Designed to help everyone, from complete beginners to those who want to take their next steps in the world of investing and trading, this book can help you learn and more importantly understand how to create wealth using stable financial assets like shares.



Excerpt from the book:

 “Somewhere in the middle of 2016, my son Michael, having just finished his zoology degree, said to me ‘so what’s all this share trading about then?’

Well, Michael, this is our answer!

In order to find out and answer that basic question, Michael and I have been on a year-long journey to discover what we can learn about share investing and trading and this is the result – a strategy and guidebook for anyone to follow in order to achieve a steady 10% return on small amounts of money which, if properly invested, will create financial freedom for most people and most families over time.

Our learning journey has been taken together as a mum and son – we’ve attended all courses together for instance and throughout the writings we have used I/we interchangeably.  Sometimes the I is Michael and sometimes it’s me.

We’ve also used £ and $ fairly indiscriminately.  These strategies work wherever you are and whatever your local currency might be and we invest in both the USA and UK for instance – but we could invest anywhere in the world from our desk at home.  We’ve identified a couple of share brokers who between them cover more or less the entire globe – so again, it doesn’t matter where you live or what currency you start with – these strategies are entirely possible for you!”

An eclectic and skilfully-written series of absorbing tales


About the Book:

Life thwarts Floyd’s goals sooner or later. A rival challenges his new invention. His buried gold is confiscated by HM Treasury. He is wrongly charged with arson. He is unfairly dismissed. He campaigns to change part of English punctuation, yet inadvertently continues to use it afterwards. Helping a friend lands him in hospital. What has he done to deserve all this?

Yet he is resourceful in dealing with his adverse situations, whether personal or confronting the might of the state. Other characters must eat humble pie to stay afloat. College lecturer Ed Beck forsakes his principles. And Matt abandons his business dreams to preserve an old friendship.


Excerpt from the book:

“He was in town about to make arrangements to obtain a basket of European currencies: German marks, Swiss francs, Italian lire, French francs and Dutch guilders.

‘Excuse me sir,’ said a man in a raincoat, ‘police.’ He and his colleague produced a badge.

‘What’s this about?’

‘Where were you last Thursday night, around 11.00 p.m.?’

‘I don’t have to answer this!’

‘We can do this down at the station if you like.’


The detective offered Floyd a cigarette, which he refused.

‘So,’ asked the detective. ‘Where were you last Thursday night, around 11.00 p.m.?’

‘At the Cloak and Dagger, having a drink.’

‘On your own?’

‘No, with a work colleague.’

‘Where do you work?’

‘Not working at the moment. I’m due to go on an Inter-rail trip around Europe quite soon.’

‘Where did you last work?’

‘Frixton library.’

The detective and his colleague exchanged glances.

‘Who was the work colleague you were with at the Cloak and Dagger?’

‘Jack Mills,’ said Floyd automatically. It was not until a few minutes later that he remembered what Jack had told him about grassing. But what had Jack done, if anything?”
