It is 1936 and Spain is on the brink of civil war. Across Europe, young men are enlisting in the International Brigade to free their Spanish brethren from the grip of Fascism, leaving sisters and lovers at home. But not all women are content to be left behind. Three brave women, inspired by patriotism, idealism, love and even revenge, dare to go into battle against tradition and oppression.

Five decades later the discovery of a long-lost letter begins a voyage of discovery across three generations.

Deceit, heartbreak, and a longstanding fear of reprisals must all be overcome if the deeds of the forgotten women are to be properly honoured.

Welcome to my website and thank you for calling in. I hope you’ll find something of interest about my books, and a little about me.

I write gritty historical sagas set in the Lake District, Manchester, Cornwall and other places around the world. Wherever I’ve lived or visit for a holiday.

I also write historical romance and biographical historicals under the name of Marion Carr.

As you can see, history is a passion of mine. If you have any comments or questions, or simply wish to chat, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I love talking to readers on Facebook and Twitter.  

If you’d like to be kept up to date on new titles, contests and events, please sign up for my newsletter. I only send it out 4 or 5 times a year so your inbox won’t be flooded.
