Outskirts Press Announces the Release of New Historical Fiction: Wheel of Fate, Book I by Yvonne Pastolove

December 8, 2017 – Denver, CO and NYC, NY – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of Wheel of Fate by Yvonne Pastolove. This historical novel is the first of two books set in the nineteenth century.

Wheel of Fate follows twins Nicolas and Madeleine, who are born in 1836. Their ill mother, a widow, leaves her two-day-old daughter in a Paris hospital’s “wheel of fate,” to be cared for by the Sisters. The mother’s “friend” convinces her that her son did not survive.

Madeleine is adopted by a loving upper-class family in Rennes, but never told she is adopted. Her brother Nicolas is left with a poor Breton wet nurse who happens to be a remarkable woman. Every now and then both twins dream of “my other myself.”

When the Crimean War begins in 1853/54, Nicolas goes after his friend Alain, who has taken off without telling anybody. On the ship he is befriended by a British officer, Thomas Fellowes, and while they go their separate ways and live through the hell of war, fate brings them together at the siege of Sebastopol, where Nicolas saves his friend’s life.

It is through the Crimean War that the connection between Nicolas and Madeleine comes to light. The story continues in Book 2, where the twins decide whether they want to try to find out who their parents were. All they know—from a note their mother pinned to Madeleine’s shirt—is that their mother was educated and their father died in an accident. Book 2 is currently in progress.
