A great saga writer with a 1940â€™s romance, perfect for long nights in and real coal fires!
The author served in the WRNS during the Second World War and uses her experience to give the novel great authority – She is a very good writer.
Set in Portsmouth in 1941, this new saga brings back some well loved characters from Harry's April Grove series. She is a star regional saga writer
Liverpool, 1938 and on into the war with evacuated children, the devastation of the Blitz and lots of drama. Good, gritty stuff from this star author
A mid 19th century saga of Bristol and Barbados, slaves, sugar, murder and more.
The story, with magical elements, of seven sisters living in Coventry during the Second World War, when the son of one is passed among them.
A heartrending tale of two young lovers torn violently apart at the beginning of the twentieth century. Jam-packed with drama, tragedy and thwarted love, this is Josephine Cox at her inimitable best.
This is very good indeed. Itâ€™s the first in a new series and has the Welsh pits as its backdrop and is by the author who wrote the highly successful television series Hearts of Gold.
Family saga at its best from a household name. Fashion retailer Boots Adams is celebrating his sixtieth birthday with a good old-fashioned cockney knees-up. The new generation however is growing up and further changes are on the way. A big clothing firm wants to take over Adams Fashions, and Boots and Sammy have difficult decisions to make. An engrossing and hugely popular series.
I can highly recommend her as an author who writes absorbing, gritty, eventful sagas. Sheâ€™s good.
Sometimes when I read a really good novel I literally fall in love, I pant to return to it, I miss it when I’m away, I think about it all the time, I need it. This is such a book. An epic adventure of two boys through two world wars. A tale of rivalry, jealousy, treachery, misunderstanding and great sadness set against the background of the early days of the oil industry in America and the Middle East. It’s 656 pages of unput-downable stuff, suitable for both genders.
Right back to Thorn Birds territory: a big Australian Outback family drama full of tragedy, passion and loss. A certain winner
We all love a good saga. From Wuthering Heights and Jamaica Inn, to the modern works of authors like Katie Flynn, Katherine Webb and Nadine Dorries, there is something so captivating about the journey of a romantic heroine through an unfamiliar world, where the hearts and desires of all around her form the centre of everything. These stories can take place on grand settings: on the High Seas and foreign lands, or on a small cobbled street in a northern mining town. It doesn’t matter, as the journey of the heart is the most important of all. Get your tissues at the ready and find yourself happily shipwrecked on the ragged rocks of epic romance.
