by Diane Eklund-Āboliņš.

Any life is made up of innumerable patterns that are constantly intertwining and changing, and because of this no one can know anyone's story completely. Kaleidoscope collects together some of these patterns in the life of Bridget O'Connor, who is grappling with the moral implications of war and her family's Irish past. She is also intent on finding her own female identity in a male–dominated society, but when a terrible situation makes her question whether killing may sometimes be ethical, her world threatens to disintegrate.

The Waiting Room

by Diane Eklund-Āboliņš.

What is beyond the waiting room? Some people believe that they know, but are they right?
Is there one answer, or are there many answers? In a society where the individual is no longer of any importance, what is beyond the waiting room may be completely benign, or it may be something else altogether.

An Ambiguous Tragedy

by Diane Eklund-Āboliņš.

What we perceive around us as being real, is, on the one hand, essentially real for us in that moment of perception, and yet, at the same time, it can be completely unreal...
Reality, as it is and as we believe it to be, is the red thread running through An Ambiguous Tragedy. People disappear without trace, leaving behind them friends and relatives desperate for answers. Is there a connection between the disappearances, or are they all unrelated? Is there a line between what is real and what we imagine to be real?

We are constantly being bombarded with messages via our senses and yet many of these messages lodge in our intellect without inciting any kind of emotional response.

Reader comments

In The Waiting Room I could see parallels to some of the dystopian novels I have read, and I hope that it is not in such a world we are going to end up. But, when I look around me, I wonder if we are not almost there, and hopefully this novel will make us wake up before it is too late.

I'd like to thank you for writing the book (45 Days: Walking the Bibbulmun Track) - it is the perfect preparation for me to "be with someone" on the track and I enjoyed the reading very much. I found a lot of helpful information in your book and it felt sometimes like I'd know you a little bit, while I was reading, because I'm a vegetarian, too, and I'm also afraid of heights.

I loved Nina's journey. Congratulations. I could not put it down for 3 days.

I have just finished reading your excellent book, you have done an outstanding job. Once I started I could not put it down. I now know the real story about Nikolina's life which goes beyond belief – well done.
