The Salvaging of Sonny Chapman is the first of three novellas telling the story of a young mother from Derbyshire, England. Sonny works as a portrait artist, commissioned by the bereaved relatives of those whose loved ones have died.
As Sonny sketches the eyes of the portraits she works on, she starts to hear their voices, just as if she is having a conversation with them. She hears secrets, military corruptions, family trysts and many confessions from beyond the grave.
She keeps a journal of much of the information she has been given over the decade that she has been doing the portrait work. Unbeknown to her, she is being watched by some very bad people who not only want to get their hands on the journal but want to see her buried in a grave of her own, never to be found.

About the Author
Sue J. Daniels was born in 1964 in North West London. When she was five years old, her English teacher stated in her school report that she had a good knowledge of English grammar, that her stories were readable, interesting and imaginative, with excellent vocabulary. Sue puts this down totally to her father, who taught her to read from the racing pages of his evening newspaper before she even started school.
