Meryn Allingham Book and Novel

Meryn Allingham - Author


Merryn Allingham was born into an army family and spent her childhood moving around the UK and abroad. Unsurprisingly it gave her itchy feet and in her twenties she escaped from an unloved secretarial career to work as cabin crew and see the world. Merryn loves history and in 2014 published her first historical suspense trilogy, Daisy's War, set in India and wartime England in the 1930s/1940s. All three novels are now available - The Girl from Cobb Street, The Nurse's War and Daisy's Long Road Home.
