Today I am handing over my blog to the wonderful author of family sagas, Judith Barrow, so she can celebrate the launch of her new novel, The Heart Stone.
I am halfway through this fabulous book which is uplifting and packed full of emotion.
If you fancy a really good read – check this out.
Here’s the blurb:
When war takes Jessie’s love away, she must fight for her own survival
1914 – and everything changes for Jessie on a day trip to Blackpool. She realises her true feelings for her childhood friend, Arthur, then just as they are travelling home from this rare treat, war is declared.
Arthur lies about his age to join his Pals’ Regiment. Jessie’s widowed mother is so frightened of the future, she agrees to marry the vicious Amos Morgan, making Jessie’s home an unsafe place for her. Before he leaves, Arthur and Jessie admit their feelings and promise to wait for each other. Arthur gives Jessie a heart-shaped stone to remember him. But with Arthur far away, their love leaves Jessie with a secret that will see her thrown from her home and terribly abused when she can hide the truth no longer.
Faced with a desperate choice between love and safety, Jessie must fight for survival, whatever the cost.
