From the author of Torn and Inviolate comes Stormbird, the story of an unexpected relationship between a British war widow and a German fighter pilot, despite their countries’ bitter differences.

For Karen, creating war-time Britain meant reliving some of the tales told to her by her mother and grandmother.

Karen’s mother was born in Yorkshire in 1941, and many of the anecdotal imagery and descriptions of Leeds and the villages, what was happening at the time and what life was like, was exactly as her mum had described. Where growing up in the wartime rubble was normal.

It was a time when everyone pitched in and Karen’s grandmother even drove an ambulance around Leeds during the bombing raids.

Karen has captured this ‘can do’ attitude in Stormbird and transports the reader back to wartime Britain, as depicted in many of Karen’s childhood memories.
