Date Published: May 5, 2015
London on 3 September 1939 is in upheaval. War is inevitable. Into this turmoil steps Kate Sheridan, newly arrived from Ireland to live with her aunt and uncle, and look for work. When she meets Flight Lieutenant Charlie Butler sparks fly, but he is a notorious womaniser. Should she ignore all the warnings and get involved with a ladies man whose life will be in daily danger?
Charlie Butler has no intention of getting involved with a woman. But when he meets Kate his resolve is shattered. Should he allow his heart to rule his head and fall for a nineteen-year-old Irish girl while there is a war to fight?
Private conflicts and personal doubts are soon overshadowed. Will the horrors of war bring Kate and Charlie together or tear them apart?
The key to a Historical Novel is being able to submerge the reader in the time you are writing about and I think that Lorna Peel really manages to do that. Everything about the setting and characters seemed authentic.
The romance unfolded quite sweetly. There were bumps and each of the characters had things to overcome about what they thought they needed.
Lorna Peel is an author of contemporary and historical romantic fiction.
Her first novel, Only You, a contemporary romance, was published in 2014. Into The Unknown, an historical romance set during WWII, was published on 5 May 2015.
Lorna was born in England and lived in North Wales until her family moved to Ireland to become farmers, which is a book in itself! She lives in rural Ireland, where she write, researches her family history, and grows fruit and vegetables. She also keeps chickens (and a Guinea Hen who now thinks she’s a chicken!).
