Elizabeth Elgin Book and Novel

Elizabeth Elgin - Author


In 1991 an unknown writer published her first ever full length saga. Her name was Elizabeth Elgin, the book was ‘ALL THE SWEET PROMISES’ and the result was a publishing sensation!

Overnight this Yorkshire born-and-bred grandmother found herself being acclaimed as one of the most exciting discoveries of the new decade. According to ‘The Mail on Sunday’, ‘ALL THE SWEET PROMISES’ numbered among the UK’s top ten romantic best-sellers and within days it had swept onto other best-seller lists the length and breadth of the country.

‘ALL THE SWEET PROMISES’ was a book written from the heart. Like her three heroines, Elizabeth Elgin was a Wren during the Second World War and saw active service throughout the United Kingdom. The story she told captured the unrepeatable spirit of Britain during those dark years and captured the hearts and minds of myriad readers – both young and old alike.

If you like Elizabeth Elgin you might also like to read books by Margaret Mayhew, Charlotte Bingham and Margaret Pemberton.
