The community of authors and friends is a wonderful thing. A book blurb is one of the most difficult things to write and as I am told, I am lousy at selling myself and my work. Too British, too refined. I need to learn to be brasher. So I have listened and learnt and taken onboard suggestions and the result of my third attempt is below.
Jump on this unforgettable rollercoaster of love, loss and heartache.
Sadie is brought up in luxury as her work-obsessed father, with the touch of Midas, reaps riches from the boom years before the Great War in Australia.
Post-war, as depression looms, Sadie’s only option is to flee from her disastrous marriage, seeking refuge in a small seaside town in northern England.
Years later with her sons in RAF Bomber Command, she receives a letter from her long-lost brother which forces her to confront the past and her part in her family’s downfall.
Can old wounds be healed?
Will she find new love?
Will this second war destroy everyone she saved?
An astonishing tale, spanning continents, where truth is stranger than fiction. The saga of this extraordinary family of Australian pioneers continues.
This is still a work in progress but there’s some great advice here Writing Blurbs
