Product Description

First comes the miracle and then comes the madness. The miracle is the birth of identical triplets, and the madness is all about money, of course. The year is 1916 and the newborn baby girls have become pint-size celebrities. Unfortunately, this small portion of fame soon leads to a much larger portion of greed, and the triplets are split up -- parceled out to the highest bidders. Two of the girls go to live in a hilltop mansion. The third girl isn't so lucky. She ends up with a shady family that lives in an abandoned work camp. That's how their lives begin: two on top, one on the bottom, and all three in the same small town. And when their worlds collide, as they must, the consequences are extreme.


"Tea Cups & Tiger Claws" spans fifty years and takes the reader from a shantytown to a gilded mansion, from dark desires to sacrificial love.

Every now and then I wonder whether I should unsubscribe from Google Alerts. It kinda feels presumptuous to be alerted to anything that contains your own name. Well, maybe not to some people, but it does to me.

But then, this morning, it brought me this link of a completely unsolicited review: http://justaddstory.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/review-shifting-reality-by-patty-jansen/

It's always cool to read a positive review, especially from someone who 'gets' your book - 'grats! :)

Good for you!  And it isn't presumptuous, it's business.   :D

Hey - great!  I find Google Alerts to be bit slow and unreliable though...so once in a while I do a Google Search with my name, web-address url etc. and discover amazing things that Google never alerted me to!
