Choices and Consequences Book 4
When the fate of the world rests on your shoulders, how do you choose between what you ought to do and the only thing you really want?
Leonie finally knows who she is. But now she needs to decide who she is going to be. Her choice will affect not just her family, not just those she knows, but tens, hundreds of thousands, millions of people that she doesn’t. And every path that’s open to her will put Perry under the pressures that caused his breakdown before. How can she do what she must and still protect Perry?
Perry desperately wants to make things easier for Leonie. Somehow he has to find the strength to face the things that all but destroyed him in the past. But every way he turns, some aspect of his past lies waiting to pounce – even during his happiest moments. And he can never forget that Leonie’s life is in danger from someone, somewhere.
Gabriel has managed to negotiate peace, at least in theory. Now he must put that into practice and reunite Leonie with the family she never knew she had. Then disaster strikes right in the middle of his own sanctuary. Can he still protect those he loves, or has he been harbouring a villain the whole time?

Weave of Love
Choices and Consequences Book 3
What if the choice you have to make has devastating consequences for others?
How can anyone know the right thing to do?
Leonie chose to sacrifice everything to save other people. Now those around her have to face the consequences – and those consequences are not what they expected.
Prospero must deal with his own guilt. He was the one who gave Leonie the tools she needed – her life was in his hands. To make the most of what she did, he will have to face up to all the family issues he has avoided for so long. Whatever he chooses to do, someone he loves will be hurt. For Leonie’s sake, is he now strong enough to make the choice he couldn’t make before?
The crisis predicted by Lord Gabriel has come and gone. But his task isn’t over. Leonie’s very existence may be out in the open but Gabriel discovers that the past is never what it seems – and nor is the present. How can he use what he now knows to bring together those who have been enemies for as long as anyone can remember? If he fails in this, everything he’s had to do so far will be in vain.

Thread of Hope
Choices and Consequences Book 2
What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?
Is honesty always the best policy?
Leonie may have run away but Prospero will find her. He loves her and he wants a future with her by his side whatever the consequences. Only when he does find her, he ought to tell her who he really is, outside the monastery. That’ll make her run again. Dare he risk it? But if he doesn’t tell her, someone else may…
Marriage to Prospero is what Leonie wants most and the one thing she knows she can’t have. If he found out what she was really like, what she’d been, what she’d done, he’d despise her and she couldn’t bear that. Better to leave now than live a lie – but it’s harder than she expected. If only…
Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie, secrets that not even she knows, secrets that will tear the world apart. And the secrets he is keeping are tearing him apart. How can sacrificing those he loves possibly achieve peace when everything he discovers risks the death of millions?

Strand of Faith
Choices and Consequences Book 1
A girl. A monk. An unthinkable sacrifice.
When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?
In a post-apocalyptic future, a girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.
After the troubles of his youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. Then he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. How can it possibly be right to leave a life of worship and service for human desire? And if he does leave, will the pressures from his past destroy him?
Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the Abbey. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything spirals out of her control. Everyone she’s ever loved has died. She can’t do that to him. But how can she walk away from the first place she’s truly belonged?
Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. Is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?

- Which character would you like to be in this book?
I’d want to be Leonie. All the characters have a bit of me in them but Leonie has the most, and her POV is written in first person so I’m closest to her. She has some pretty tough decisions to make but she’s still who I’d like to be. My second choice would be Lilyrose. She’s a fairly minor character but she bounces around full of confidence, enthusiasm and happiness.
- Do you always take a book/ereader wherever you go?
I always have my phone on me (although it’s usually on silent) so I’ve always got an ereader app with me at least. If I go away I’ll probably stuff my Kindle and throw in a couple of paperbacks too.
- Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
Tricky question! They say the bad ones have more fun – but I think I’d still rather be the good one.
- Do you prefer to read/write standalones or series?
I don’t have a preference either reading or writing. With writing for me it’s a matter of how long the story needs, whether that’s a short story, novella, standalone novel or series.
When I’m reading, I do enjoy series – as long as the wait for the next book isn’t too long. But I enjoy standalones just as much. And I like series where each novel is a standalone, but you might meet characters from the previous book again.
- Where can I find you when you are reading?
Pretty much anywhere! Mostly likely either in bed, or curled up in a corner of the sofa. Or at the gym where I prop my ereader on the control panel of the treadmill.
- Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?
Probably with my husband. We’ve been married more than thirty years but we still enjoy spending time together and he’s my best friend. We enjoy walking – there’s very beautiful countryside around where we live – eating out, going to the cinema or theatre, and just staying in together.
- Can you walk past a bookstore without going inside?
I can. Honest, I can. But why would I want to?
- What are you most proud of?
Easy. My children. Cloth of Grace is dedicated to my eldest son, Adam.
- What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?
Wow! Just wow. This is the fourth book and unboxing it is just the same as when I unboxed the first one. That feeling doesn’t get old.
- What piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Finish it. That’s always my first piece of advice. So many people start writing and never finish the story so that puts you ahead of the game already. And once it’s all written down you can edit it. You can’t edit a blank page.

About the author
Rachel J Bonner is the author of the compelling and enthralling four book Choices and Consequences series. The first book in the series, Strand of Faith, was published in November 2018. Book 2, Thread of Hope, released on 2nd May 2019, followed by Weave of Love on 24th October. The story concludes with Cloth of Grace, released on 29th February 2020.
Rachel has a degree in engineering, which she followed with a career in accountancy which is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in fantasy or romance. Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun. When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club. Shooting targets only, honest. Nothing to worry about. (Okay, sometimes we shoot Polo mints. Or cabbages. Still nothing to worry about.)
She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary. It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.
