Mission Impossible? Nurse Patsy Pritchard wears her hospital uniform like camouflage gear, hiding a lonely heart she's declared off-limits to the men who try to get close. Then her eccentric aunt concocts a campaign with a handsome sergeant in mind, and Patsy knows her conflicts will only get worse--un there's an unconditional surrender. Ray Darling has seen his share of hot spots and tough places, but getting through to the lovely blue-eyed blonde may be the hardest challenge yet. And just when his hopes appear to be more than dreams, he's sent overseas--and the gulf between him and Patsy is wider than ever.... When two people are caught up in their own private wars, they just might need unconventional tactics to conquer the obstacles ahead!
In this first book in the Step By Step trilogy, global catastrophe occurs as all plastic mysteriously liquefies. All the small components making many technologies possible―Navigation systems, communications, medical equipment―fail. In Sycamore River, citizens find their lives disrupted as everything they've depended on melts around them, with sometimes fatal results. All they can rely upon is themselves. And this is only the beginning . . .
Coarse Witchcraft is a squint-eyed look at what passes for Craft in many modern groups and just how much of the teaching has been dumbed down so that everyone can acquire rank and have a crack at the priesthood . This blind grope for titles, rank and public acclaim have replaced the enlightened quest for genuine wisdom and ability, while the old Witch-magic is practised by fewer and fewer of those who would call themselves Witches. There are also those who insist on being recognised as instant Adepts in a system that takes years of study and preparation but book-learning is not enough as many have found to their cost when confronted by real Old Crafters. Coarse Witchcraft is a no-holds-barred view of what is going on today in many Craft circles. Hopefully, those who read this book will laugh, and realise that it is possible to mix mirth and magic, while still retaining respect for oneself and the Old Ways."
