The fourth instalment of The Marsden Family saga brings the story up to 1939.
Intertwined with real historical events, we experience the social climate in the country as it moves closer to war through the eyes of the various members of the family. Using extensive research, award-winning author, Alan Reynolds, brings the past to life at a pivotal time in English history in a compelling novel. We experience the increasing threat from Hitler, and the British Government’s attempt at appeasement; the IRA bombing campaign, and the efforts of the British Secret Service to thwart their aims, among other key events which shaped the world at that time.
But not everyone will see the outbreak of hostilities.
‘A strongly written, historical drama offering readers an insight into English life in the run up to the Second World War.’ The Wishing Shelf
