The Linden Walk by Elizabeth Elgin

The war is over, but the battle for happiness has just begun …

After six long years the Second World War is finally finished. Rationing may remain, but hopes and dreams are in good supply.

At Rowangarth, deep in the Yorkshire countryside, there is more good news for the Sutton family and wedding preparations are underway. Lyndis Carmichael has finally won the heart of Drew Sutton, the man she has secretly cherished for years. Still, Lyndis has doubts. Haunted by the memory of Drew's fiancée Kitty – killed during the Blitz – she wonders if she can ever take her place in Drew's heart, and if she truly belongs in the close-knit Sutton clan.

And other ghosts still linger. Keth Purvis, back from France after a high-risk mission, is compelled to return overseas to search for the young girl who saved his life, Drew's mother has yet to reveal the shocking truth of his father's identity, and Tatiana wonders if she will ever meet her long-lost half-sister.

With the country struggling to get back on its feet, can the Sutton family make peace with its past?


'A story of passion, faith and class in Yorkshire. Unforgettable characters.'

'A poignant, powerful saga that will stay in your memory long after you've read it.'

About the Author

Elizabeth Elgin

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.
