My Next Book - The Far River

I'm pleased to annouce that my next book, THE FAR RIVER is available for pre order.

For as long as anyone could remember, the Schallers and the Newmans had been enemies. When the skeletal remains of a victim of foul play are discovered at the Schaller estate, a decades-old feud between the rival winemaking families is reignited and dark secrets begin to see the light of day. Set against the lush backdrop of the rolling hills of California's Central Coast, The New York Times best-selling author Barbara Wood's thirtieth novel is a generation-spanning saga of love, treachery, and bitterly held grudges.

German Readers: I'm pleased to announce that my latest book is available at amazon.de

Kalifornische Palmen, bedrohte Natur und eine Frau, die um ihren Traum kämpft – Bestsellerautorin Barbara Wood erzählt unwiderstehlich gut.
Als die schöne New Yorker Erbin Elizabeth im Sommer 1920 bei der Schiffspassage in die Heimat auf Nigel, Baron Stullwood trifft, ist sie von ihm fasziniert: Man hat ihn zwar enterbt, aber er brennt vor Energie und Zuversicht, und er ist fest entschlossen, England mit all seinen beengenden Traditionen hinter sich zu lassen und aus eigener Kraft ein Imperium zu erschaffen. Elizabeth verliebt sich in ihn und seinen Traum von riesigen Palmenplantagen in der kalifornischen Wüste. Die wilde Landschaft begeistert und berührt sie zutiefst. Doch in Palm Springs, auf das gerade der Glanz von Hollywood und seinen Filmstars fällt, erlebt Elizabeth auch die dunkle Seite von Nigels Ehrgeiz und seiner Gier nach Geld und Einfluss. Kann sie wirklich ganz allein gegen die mögliche Zerstörung der fragilen Natur kämpfen – und sich gegen Nigel stellen? Wer wird ihr dabei helfen? Elizabeth muss entscheiden, ob sie ihrem eigenen Traum folgen darf.

Back In Print

by Barbara Wood — Published: Nov 23, 2016

      I can’t tell you how excited and deeply moved I am to have my first novel being re-issued in the English language after having been out of print for years. THE MAGDALENE SCROLLS was my very first novel. Forty years ago this month, I had just ended my work shift at Santa Monica Hospital and my husband came to pick me up. As we were driving down Wilshire Boulevard, he handed me the mail. He said, “You got a letter from that agent.” A few months earlier, I had timidly submitted a manuscript to an agent in New York and had been anxiously awaiting news. The novel was about some ancient scrolls being discovered in the ruins of Magdala on the Sea of Galilee and the astonishing message they deliver to the modern world.

Readers in Spain: The Spanish language version of my latest book, will be avaialble at bookstores November 17th and also at amazon.es

En 1920, durante el viaje en barco que la devuelve a casa, Elizabeth Van Linden, una rica heredera de la alta sociedad neoyorquina, conoce a Nigel Barnstable, un joven aristócrata inglés que ha heredado el título de barón Stullwood pero no el dinero ni las propiedades de la familia. Enamorada, se casa con él en cuanto llegan a Nueva York, y Nigel pasa a controlar la cuantiosa fortuna de su esposa.

La primera decisión del matrimonio es irse a vivir cerca del desierto de Mojave, al sur de California, donde Nigel compra una hermosa propiedad para crear un imperio agrícola junto a una reserva india. La población se llama Palm Springs y está empezando a atraer, como lugar de ocio, a los ricos y famosos de una incipiente industria: el mundo del cine.

Elizabeth trata de adaptarse a una vida nueva, ignorante de que su presencia perturba a Cody, el vaquero que han contratado como capataz. También empieza a conocer a los jefes de la tribu cahuilla, que tratan de vivir de acuerdo con sus costumbres ancestrales, preservando el amor y el respeto por la tierra.

 

Night Trains - Audio Book

by Barbara Wood — Published: Sep 06, 2016

Coming Soon: Cherryhill Publishing:  Night Trains, based on a true event, is an unforgettable account of how an entire town in Poland resists the devastating blow of the occupying Nazi forces, using wit, courage, and determination as its only weapons. Occupied by the Germans, the strategically located town of Sofia, Poland, stands on the brink of annihilation in 1941. As every arrest and execution brings total obliteration closer to reality, two medical doctors devise an ingenious plan — to stage a typhus epidemic that will force the Nazis to evacuate. Gripping and powerful, Night Trains brilliantly illuminates the classic conflict between active and passive resistance in one town's fight for survival.
