Every novel in the “Boxed In” series is an independent story in its own right and the series can be read in any order. Each novel is told from the viewpoint of the main character who is, in some way, “Boxed In”. Some characters also appear in other novels – which allows the reader to see them in a different light. Across the “Boxed In” novels, interconnecting lives build into a fascinating interplay of human choices and intersecting circumstances.
Each book is available as a paperback or an eBook.
