Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Fighting With Shadows by Beryl Matthews

Angie Westwood is horrified when her cousin, Jane, dies of heart failure at the tender age of 20, leaving a 3 year old son and an unresolved mystery over the identity of his father.

Angie adopts Danny straight away, but is torn between a desire to trace his father for the boy's sake, and a fear of losing him and complicating matters unnecessarily. She takes Danny down to the farm in Somerset she and Jane were evacuated to during the war, and they both heal more quickly with the love and support of the Sawyer family, who treat them as their own. However the moment they lay eyes on Danny, it is immediately apparent to the Sawyers who Danny's father was, and they enlist the help of Major Bob Strachan, currently closing down the last of the prisoner of war camps in the area, to travel to Germany and track Dieter down . . .

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Linda Hill

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
