Authors:

The real motive wasn't love and it wasn't greed . . . It rose to the surface out of a grey pit of boredom. When Charlie Pritchard is shown a way to escape his mundane and monotonous life as a small-town bank clerk in a tiny Welsh resort in the 1920s, and live instead in wealth with beautiful Delphine, he knows that this is his only chance. And he has to take it - even if the plan is to rob his own bank. However, as zero hour approaches he realises that there is far more at stake than he had ever imagined, and that there will be no escape, no escape at all.

1912-1940 A generation fallen. A country that will never be the same again. Nowhere in England avoids the searing loss of young men¬?during the First World War and the remote Devon village of Shallowford is no exception. Many never return and the lives of those who do come back are changed forever. Paul Craddock must try to rebuild the estate and, with more difficulty, the bonds broken between the people who belong there. It is a time of huge social change and there are challenges in peace as hard to surmount as those of war. And before they are met, Germany once again threatens the stability of Europe and a way of life so hard won.
