For nearly six years, everyone around them, including the couple's own sons, were duped into thinking John had died in a canoeing accident at sea, leaving Anne a grieving widow, when in fact he was hiding out in the house next door.

What kind of parents watch their sons weep, knowing they can end their grief with just a word?

Deadly Divorces

Deadly Divorces

Author: Tammy Cohen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/07/2007

You fall in love, you get married, and you build a lifetime's worth of dreams around each other. Then suddenly, it's gone - the past tainted, the present a living nightmare, the future wiped out. Divorce is the blade that cuts the still-beating heart out of a marriage. What's left is a gaping wound that festers and can all too quickly become infected. Where once was love, now comes hate, where once was purity, now comes corruption. Dreams of happy ever after are replaced by visions of revenge. The collapse of a marriage creates a monster that feeds on the basest of our emotions - greed, jealousy, hatred, bitterness. The people in this book weren't born evil, but in the heat of a relationship break-up, all restrain melted and violent passions spiralled out of control. What makes a model father murder his estranged wife, then go on TV pleading for her to come home? How does a devoted wife and mum walk into a beauty salon and shoot her ex-husband's pregnant lover in cold blood? No one ever knows what really goes on behind the closed doors of a marriage in freefall. But, as these shocking, real life tragedies reveal, there are some people who take the words 'til death us do part' all too literally - with devastating results.

Amazing Gap Year Adventures

Amazing Gap Year Adventures

Author: Tammy Cohen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/02/2007

This year approximately 200,000 people between 18 and 25 will head off for what they hope will be the adventure of a lifetime. For anxious parents, left at home nursing an empty nest (and even emptier wallet), a gap year can appear more like a nightmare than a dream. No wonder some enroll their sons and daughters on safety courses run by the likes of the SAS! But for every horror story of illness, theft or assault, there are hundreds more tales of enriching experiences, breathtaking adventure, character-forming challenges, exotic encounters and, for some, even romance. This informative and inspirational guide charts the highs and lows of independent travel and will help everyone make the most of a year out - parents and gappers alike. Besides stories of bungee-jumping and swimming with sharks, teaching children English in Africa, tending baby jaguars in Bolivia and studying film in New York, author and journalist Tammy Cohen has selected some remarkable accounts of gappers who've helped save communities, single-handedly rebuilt the hospital which cured their malaria and transformed the lives of their own parents by introducing them to the third-world village which has more or less adopted them. Then there are the travellers who've survived kidnapping, pirate attacks and acts of God to return with a fresh outlook on life. With incredible stories of love, marriage and incredible friendships formed under the most challenging of circumstances, Gap Year Adventures is the gripping, no-holds-barred book that tells it like it is - don't leave home without it!

The Day I Died Ten Remarkable True Stories of Near-death Experience

The Day I Died Ten Remarkable True Stories of Near-death Experience

Author: Tammy Cohen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/05/2006

What happens to us when we die? Where do people go? What do they see? What messages do they receive? Why are they allowed to come back? The Day I Died brings together ten profoundly moving testimonies from people who have passed through the limits of human endurance and beyond. Around the world, ordinary people go about their daily lives convinced they've had a glimpse into the afterlife. Their eye-witness accounts often share uncanny similarities, and this book does justice to this beguiling subject by analysing dramatic narratives and shedding light on a phenomenon at the crossroads of the medical and the mystical. Tammy Cohen presents ten intriguing real-life accounts, including a man who 'died' on the operating table and awoke with increased psychic abilities, a victim of domestic abuse who had a life-changing unusual out-of-body experience, plus stories from people who had 'drowned' and 'died' of heart attacks. Powerful, challenging and endlessly fascinating, The Day I Died celebrates both pleasurable and distressing near-death experiences - when death came calling, but left empty-handed.
