It’s not very often that I feature a “promotion only” post here on Being Anne, but when I saw The Orphan Thief by Glynis Peters, I really wanted to help bring it to people’s attention. Published by One More Chapter, it’s already available for kindle (and at just 99p when I last checked): the paperback will be available on 23rd January. My thanks to Anne at Random Things Tours for inviting me to spread the word, and for the supporting material.
From the international bestselling author of The Secret Orphan
When all seems lost…
As Hitler’s bombs rain down on a battered and beleaguered Britain, Ruby Shadwell is dealt the most devastating blow – her entire family lost during the Coventry Blitz.
Hope still survives…
Alone and with the city in chaos, Ruby is determined to survive this war and rebuild her life. And a chance encounter with street urchin Tommy gives Ruby just the chance she needs…
And love will overcome.
Because Tommy brings with him Canadian Sergeant Jean-Paul Clayton. Jean-Paul is drawn to Ruby and wants to help her, but Ruby cannot bear another loss. Can love bloom amidst the ruins? Or will the war take Ruby’s last chance at happiness too?
Now that really looks like one to add to the reading list, doesn’t it?
