Author shortlisted for the Romantic Novelist Association’s ‘The Romantic Saga Award 2023’ for A Mother’s War

North Yorkshire, September 1940.

It’s a year since war was first announced and the dangers are becoming all too real for Rosina Calvert-Lazenby and her courageous daughters. When Raven Hall is requisitioned by the army, Rosina must do all she can to protect her family home from the rowdy troops. After Rosina’s burgeoning relationship with young sergeant Harry is interrupted as he’s posted abroad, the arrival of an older officer who takes a keen interest in her could also spell trouble…

Meanwhile, Rosina’s fearless second daughter, twenty-year-old Evelyn Calvert-Lazenby, decides to join the Auxiliary Fire Service. Determined to help with the Blitz effort in London, she faces extreme danger. Two kind professional firemen, the Bailey brothers, take her under their wing to help protect and guide her. But with the bombings getting worse, there can be no guarantees…

Who will be safe? How can Rosina protect all those she loves? And is love still possible with such high stakes?
