Fields of Glory Cover Reveal

My latest book, Fields of Glory, went to press last week, so today I'm thrilled to be able to reveal the cover.


I love it. I think it conveys the era perfectly, and the colours are both bright and harmonious.

And here's the text from the back cover:

Thundersley, Suffolk, 1942: A young man named Jim Walker shows up at Westleigh Farm, home of the Field family, demanding to be taught how to be a farmer but reluctant to reveal anything about himself.

When Thundersley Hall is bombed by a German spy, and Violet Field is taken into custody by the Ministry of War, it is up to her daughters, Patricia and Eleanor, to work out the connection between their new farmhand and the spy.

But suspicions in wartime run deep. Everyone seems to have a secret, even the Hall’s owner, the aristocratic and handsome Alex Farrell. If his romantic intentions toward Patricia are sincere, why is he so unwilling to help her discover the truth? And can Eleanor trust her growing fondness for the taciturn Jim, or is her affection for him because he reminds her so much of the brother she has lost to the war?

She smiled at Jim. He was hiding something, but then most people were these days. The anguish of loss, or fear of the future, or suspicion of their friends and neighbours, or secrets that could cost lives if known. The war meant everyone painted on a stoically smiling face, just as the women painted on stockings with gravy browning.

It's available in shops and online from 19th April, and I'll be sure to post a link here.
