The Commander (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 1 week.


Book Two of The Lyons Saga continues in San Diego where The Captain's Wife left off, with the reunion of Trevor and his mother after a three year separation. His father arrives days later and soon his entire family is reunited. Over the next two months Genevieve and Trevor, accompanied by their friends and families, live a life filled with lavish parties at the Yacht and Beach Club and celebrations of weddings. Then early one morning the family secret is out. After the dramatic events that follow things return to normal until their world crumbles at their feet and they are left standing in the rubble. The United States declares war on Japan.

The entire West Coast goes under a mandatory blackout to protect it from a Japanese invasion targeting bases for all the branches of our military, manufacturing facilities and other strategic locations. Even though it is the holiday season the base in San Diego is filling beyond capacity with men who left their homes to enlist in the Navy.

The New Year is bittersweet as well, because with it comes the day Genevieve has dreaded since she met Trevor, the day of his deployment along with William and Mitch, two men she adores who are married to her nearest and dearest friends. But now it has taken a terrible turn.

Leslie Peppers is known for being an artist, photographer and graphic designer, but when she was a little girl she started writing short stories, then in her teens she started writing poetry all for her eyes only. This changed in May of 2015 when she went public with Coincidence or Fate?, a very short story the author made into a video that is an automated book available at no cost online at vimeo. It is the true story about her involvement with the SARS epidemic of 2003. Apparently writing was still in the back of her mind as she created artworks, because a few months later Ms. Peppers had an idea for a novel. Being an artist she did not want to commit to a project that would occupy the majority of her time. Then one day the desire to tell the story overtook her. After beginning to write the outline she realized it was going to take more than one book to tell. And without hesitating she dived into The Lyons Saga and found the water was warm.
