About the Book

In “Tempting the Stars”, the exciting and poignant sequel to The Invisible Piper, we meet young Rob Adams again; now disfigured by fire after baling out of his Spitfire. But Rob is lucky; he is sent to one of the best hospitals in war-torn Britain – the Queen Victoria in East Grinstead. Here he meets the famous ‘Guinea Pigs’; a group of men who were patients of the famous surgeon Archie McIndoe.

Rob is also lucky because he has many people who love him: his devoted parents, his beautiful girlfriend Kate, his school-friend Colin and the lion-hearted 11 year-old Charlie Slater who has to overcome many problems of his own.

At first Rob can’t see any future, but as Aldous Huxley once said ‘it is not how we cope with success that makes us strong, but how we cope with failure’

"TEMPTING THE STARS An imaginative extremely engaging novel which I could not put down. The characterisations and story line are well crafted, and eloquently grafted into a clearly detailed researched era with charm, humour, and panache. Ms. James has spent decades refining her art and it shows. A thoroughly good read!"
