Country Scribbler Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Tea Cups &
Tiger Claws by Timothy Patrick. In his debut novel, Timothy introduces
forbidden mountaintop palaces and the desperate characters who try to sneak
into them. It's a wild ride that spans fifty years, three generations, and two
families that live on opposite sides of the railroad tracks. Available in paperback
and ebook formats.
First comes the miracle and then comes the
madness. The miracle is the birth of identical
triplets, and the madness is all about money, of
course. The year is 1916 and the rare occurrence of
identical triplets turns the newborn baby girls into
pint-size celebrities. Unfortunately, this small
portion of fame soon leads to a much larger portion
of greed, and the triplets are split up--parceled out to
the highest bidders. Two of the girls go to live in a
hilltop mansion. The third girl isn't so lucky. She
ends up with a shady family that lives in an
abandoned work camp. That's how their lives begin:
two on top, one on the bottom, and all three in the
same small town.
Identical in appearance and with the same blood in
their veins, the sisters should have also shared
united destinies. Instead, those destinies are thrown
to the wind, and the consequences will be extreme.
"Tea Cups & Tiger Claws" explores wealth and
poverty, jealousy and conceit, and is ultimately a
story about deadly ambition and how it once again
will throw the sisters together. It's a journey that
spans fifty years, three generations, and the perilous
gulf between the rich and the poor. Along the way,
you'll marvel at the opulence of a mansion where
presidents are entertained, and you'll walk
cautiously through a shanty town that harbors the
forgotten. So get ready for the unexpected, and let
"Tea Cups & Tiger Claws" take you down the crooked
byways of this captivating family saga.
