Book Description: Based on the harrowing experiences of a real Australian family, The Wilted Rose tells the story of Sarah, an ambitious young woman battling against her family's strict religious beliefs to achieve her dreams. Balancing her passions with the traditional path of marriage and children pushes her to the brink of emotional chaos, and her husband faces the prospect of living an entire lifetime without the love of his wife. Their only daughter Grace grapples to cope with the toll her mother's emotional hardship takes on their family, and the normal mother-daughter relationship she longs for. Passion, religion, first love and heartbreak, depression and mental illness, family tragedy, and lifelong friendship intertwine to tell this truly captivating story of one woman's drive to overcome adversity, and the final straw that threatens to destroy her spirit and could tear her family's life apart. Kate-Lyn Therkelsen is based in Brisbane and has appeared in several publications, including the Fellowship of Australian Writers Queensland, an organisation for which she has served as Treasurer. She is a contributing writer for international online magazine Suite 101, and her profile appears on the Young People Creating Queensland website.

But there are bigger battles to fight, and Rayce—leader of the rebellion and the only man Rose has ever loved—believes their best chance at winning the war is to join forces with her sworn enemy.

Book Description: An emergency room is a revolving door of human tragedy. Each time the door opens the staff is introduced to situations that find people at the lowest points in their life - this is where triage begins. The drama is often exacerbated on the reservation as each event impacts large swaths of the tribe and the community. This is Hank's world - the emergency department of a small Indian Health Services Hospital in Crownpoint, New Mexico. It was a dry and frigid night on the Navajo Reservation when Lakala entered Hank's world. Bloody, bruised and disoriented she felt trapped by the attention she received. She didn't want anyone asking questions, especially why she ended up in the emergency room that night. But she didn't meet Hank that first night, she didn't meet anyone because she ran out. Chased by her past. Chased by whom they expected her to be. Lakala is caught between a modern world and a life deeply rooted in tradition and cultural mores, both good and bad. She struggles to belong, breaking free only when she finally can leave the reservation, but always yearns to return. In the end, Lakala must face Native Lore from a very personal but different direction. The book is fiction, but the stories are inspired by actual events and people. Hank would often tell his family that "no one would ever believe the things that we see in that small reservation hospital". The stories from his world are woven together in A Wilted Rose in a way that only can come from someone who lived it.
