1935. Hitler’s Nazi’s are firmly in control in Germany and the persecution of the Jews has begun in earnest. In this desperate time of uncertainty an unmarried Jewish woman gives birth to a daughter, whom she names Ruth.
But as the clouds of war gather, and it seems that Europe will once more be engulfed in conflict, Ruth’s mother makes the heart-wrenching decision to send her to safety on one of the ‘Kindertransport’ trains.
Arriving in England, Ruth is housed with a priest who raises her in the Christian faith, but also recognises her Jewish ancestry and so employs help to also raise her according to Jewish traditions.
It soon becomes apparent that Ruth is a very special child and has the ability to build bridges between people of different backgrounds, even at an early age.
From Nazi Germany to England and then to Australia, Ruth overcomes religious and ethnic intolerance and becomes an engineer on the Snowy Mountain Hydroelectric Project, defying all the odds.
It is a story of overcoming the brutality of life, of chasing your dreams and of bringing people together. But above all it is a story of hope.

Shortly after meeting and marrying her new husband, Ruth is catapulted into the upper management of the multinational company where she introduces major reforms.

The company she becomes president of actually belongs to Ruths Family and the profits are all used to run a charitable trust.

Prior to the Second World War, Japan and Australia had been successful trading partners, but after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbour, Australia was soon at war with Japan. Various attacks by Japan soon followed and the citizens of Australia became afraid and were ready to bolt inland from the coastal regions. In 1942, General McArthur set up his headquarters for the Pacific in Brisbane and, as a result, the city needed a civilian population to ensure the smooth operation of its essential services. Due to its proximity to the Pacific battlefronts, it was a crucial geographic point for resupplying troops in battle – from both sides of the war. A plan was soon hatched to make newsreel films and articles that would not only reassure Australia’s civilians that they would be safe from Japanese threat, but, at the same time, they would also be leaked to the Japanese in an effort to convince them that Brisbane was too difficult a city to invade. The Ministry Communications Unit chronicles the creation and development of the special public relations unit that created those movies and articles.

It is also about adventure, romance, glory and also personal sacrifice. The Ministry Communications unit, tells the tale of how the unit developed along with the interactions of people causing interest and romances to begin. But nothing in the path of love can run smoothly and as the young men and women become romantically involved they then become shocked by the horrific hospital boat sinking.



A Word from the Author

author Gordon smith pictureThe Ministry Communications Unit was a fictional unit of the Australian defence force during World War 2. Although it may have been fictional, it could possibly be real.

The story is one about the men and women who were in this unit and the work they undertook. They were to make newsreel shorts to be shown to the population to give confidence that an invasion by the Japanese would be too difficult and therefore no invasion would take place.

Romanced developed between some of the unit’s members and you will be taken into their intimate thoughts.

When a Japanese submarine sinks the hospital ship Centaur, just off the Caloundra Coast everyone in unit realises that war is very close.

The husband of a team member goes missing when the flight from England crashes in the Indian Ocean. She then throws herself into new tasks and gains many accolades both as an interviewer as well as a person.
After the war is over the unit disbands, but are employed by a major Hollywood studio to make movies in Australia.

This story has it all! Adventure, Romance, Weddings, and intrigue. There is even an unexpected battle scene.

Although a work of historical fiction, The Ministry Communications Unit is a very successful story. The plot is well conceived, the characters’ actions seem fitting for the time, and the background of the war provides an easily reachable and acceptable scenario for this story.

Dan Tollinger is having a bad Christmas. His wife lost her battle with cancer and he’s finding it hard to manage his two sons. Busy with his shop he has little time left for them, so having a woman around to keep an eye on them seems like an ideal solution.

Tonya needs premises to run her business after her bakery got damaged in a fire. With a son to bring up on her own, the sensible option is to accept Dan’s job offer to housekeep while putting her business back on the track.

Neither counted on the unexpected warmth and awareness that sprang up between them. Would it be wise to let it kindle to desire and then something more?

Especially when his sons are not ready to accept her in his life.

Book 2 in Christmas romance series, His Christmas Surprise is the story of Jay’s brother Dan. It’s not in continuity with Book 1 and is a standalone romance.
For you if you like to read family oriented romances with a bit of sensuality on the side.




A Word from the Author

Author Summerita Rhayne avatarWith His Christmas Surprise, I have turned ten books old romance author. The Christmas romance series started as a short story meant for anthology, so it was really a ‘germ’ of an idea that multiplied rapidly. In the first book, His Christmas Delight, the hero, Jay suffers from PTSD and doesn’t consider himself Mr. Right for the heroine. Myra has loved and lost, but never thought it could happen again.

His Christmas Surprise is about Jay’s brother. Having lost his wife to cancer and managing his business and kids, Dan has a lot on his plate. Tonya, sunny and joyful, can turn his house into a home. His kids, however, are not ready to accept her.

Besides writing contemporary romances like this series, I also write historical romance set in India. I have published traditionally and won contests with Harlequin and Harper Collins India. I publish independently with Amazon these days.
