Broken Branches – M Jonathan Lee
Family curses exist. Sure, some families seem to suffer more pain than others, but a curse? I don’t think so.
A family tragedy was the catalyst for Ian Perkins to return to the isolated cottage with his wife and young son. But now they are back, it seems yet more grief might befall the family.
There is still time to act, but that means Ian must face the uncomfortable truth about his past. And in doing so, he must uncover the truth behind the supposed family curse.
M Jonathan Lee was born in Yorkshire, England where he still lives to this day.
When not writing, you’ll find him standing at the back door thinking.

A Tiny Feeling of Fear
Extract From Book
“On the morning that Ian finally escaped the cottage, the floor-to-ceiling bookcase at the end of his bed was packed full of his favourite books. Little bits of paper stuck at the top of them, highlighting sentences that he especially like or paragraphs that evoked powerful feelings within him.
It was nearly time to go and he eyed the clothes that were trying to escape from the open suitcase on his bed, wondering if he had forgotten anything. He heard a car horn, and glanced out of the window to see Dad beckoning him to the car. He was tapping his watch. Mum stood alongside him, here face obscured by a thick branch from the tree. Ian quickly retrieved two books filled with Roald Dahl short stories and three them on top of his clothes. He zipped the suitcase around three sides and lifted it to the floor.”
