Is it a blessing from God, or playing God? Joey Todaro was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome at nine months old. When he had risky open heart surgery at 10 months old, his father, Joseph, slept under his crib the night before the procedure. He made a deal with God to allow his baby son to survive. Well, God answered Joseph's prayer. 13 years later, "Joey T" is a happy and energetic little boy who's enjoying family life with his dad, mom (Jill) and three sisters (Grace, Sophia, and Mia). He has the common characteristics and features of a child with Williams Syndrome including some learning challenges, the appearance and height of a much younger boy, and of course the distinctive starburst pattern in his eyes. When an experimental drug is proposed by a doctor who claims he can cure Joey of his symptoms and change his appearance, his father wonders if this could be God answering another prayer. Differing opinions on the safety and morality of the experimental treatment cause a divide between Joey's parents as well as the other families of Williams Syndrome children in their circle. Is this proposed treatment really a once-in-a-lifetime blessing sent from heaven for these families, or is the doctor trying to play God by seeking to change their children?

In the interest of Earth's mankind, our progress over thousands of years, has been monitored, believe or not, on a regular basis by these ancient ancestors, but while consistently being horrified by the advent of our countless wars, our advancing technologies, in the alien's minds, have now deemed us to now be approaching the point of starting wars which could result in our total annihilation! Each child, Charles, Chein, and Zuda, has been born with highly advanced alien genes which are programmed to advance in stages towards their maturation whereby they finally will be able to report collectively & accurately at any point whereby mankind's manifest destiny could be ultimately affected!

“You must learn to look beyond the evidence. It shows only what you wish to believe is real, not what you really wish to believe.” Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar, But never doubt I love… (Hamlet, Shakespeare) The Circle is in flux. It’s been a hectic six months, and as the friends head into the heat of summer, more trials await that will truly test the bonds of friendship. For whilst a circle may contract and may even at times constrict, it can also expand, accommodate, embrace. And it is always whole. Eternal. Set over a period of six months (July–December), In The Stars Part II continues to explore the day-to-day lives of The Circle—nine friends from high school, now in their late thirties—following them through a year of celebration, loss, illness and life-changing decisions. In The Stars Part II is Season Five in the Hiding Behind The Couch Series. This book is also available as six separate episodes. The story follows chronologically from In The Stars Part I (Season Four) and Breaking Waves (Novella). It continues in A Midnight Clear (Novella), Red Hot Christmas (Novella) and Two By Two (Season Six). For those readers unfamiliar with the series, In The Stars Part I re-introduces the main characters, so you could pick it up from there and perhaps catch up with the previous books later. * * * * * WARNING: this story contains intimate (moderately explicit) scenes between consenting opposite sex (F/M) adults. * * * * * What readers say about the Hiding Behind The Couch Series: “The remarkable characterisation in these novels is what makes them for me.” “This story reminds me of my favorite movies about friendship and relationships.” “Few authors have explored the depths of longtime friends within a group, or ‘circle’ the way Debbie McGowan has!” “The way the author deals with the complexities and issues in these books is delicate and compassionate, but with a matter-of fact-grit that smacks of reality.”
