Jeremy's Cottage is a collection of short stories, all fictional, in which ordinary people become ensnared in dilemmas, sometimes not of their own making. Each person asks for help and receives a message through a chance meeting, a dream, a fleeting thought, or even what at first appears to be a tragedy. A beloved pet might hold the solution at times. Each answer sets that person on a path out of the dilemma.

Can the magic of the Emerald Isle and the Lady reunite these two wounded hearts?
