A woman's outspoken views and unconventional lifestyle leads to a crisis, and she discovers there is a price to be paid for speaking your mind ...

In the heightened atmosphere of a busy maternity unit there are inevitable tensions between modern technology and the demands by some mothers for a 'natural childbirth'.

Sister Pierce's defiant attitude towards a hospital manager and her refusal to heed the warnings of her friends lead to her involvement in a horrific tragedy, and she soon discovers that there is a heavy price to be paid for resisting authority...

Nights On, Nights Off is a gripping story about midwives, on duty and off, a body of professional women whose emotions and reactions are ultimately no different from those of the women they serve.

Digging deeper, Sully finds that the real story stretches far beyond Billy and into D.C.’s most prominent social circles.

An alcoholic still haunted from his years as a war correspondent in Bosnia, Sully now must strike a dangerous balance between D.C.’s two extremes—the city’s violent, desperate back streets and its highest corridors of power—while threatened by those who will stop at nothing to keep him from discovering the shocking truth.
