en Limba Engleză Paperback – 4 iul 2014
It is the summer of 1944. The Second World War is in full swing and George's workload is larger than ever. He tries to ignore the warning signs but one day he is suddenly taken seriously ill. Although sixty-eight years old, George is not prepared for this and it's a shock to him that he must stop working. Left most days with only his thoughts for company, he takes pleasure in looking back over all the things he's done in his life. From a childhood growing up in Cheltenham, where he discovered the truth about his father's tragic death, George went on to join the army and play a role during the Boer War. Decades later he reminisces about his army canteen career, his time in the military police and how fate brought him to Farnham, where he married and raised a large family. His only desire now is to get back to his job of NAAFI inspector, which he has enjoyed for the past thirty years. But will he ever be well again? And will he get to see the end of this war? Or will time simply run out for George?

Notă biografică

Sarah Lysaght is married with three grown up children. After leaving school she worked in Education for more than 10 years before being successful in starting her own business from home. She then halted everything to concentrate on bringing up her children. Job done, she tried her hand at writing and was surprised to discover how much she enjoyed this, considering she had rarely picked up a book as a child, unless made to do so.Sarah lives in Cheshire where she is able to enjoy long solitary walks and plan the characters she includes in her novels. She has always been positive and creative and now in her 50's enjoys gardening, drawing, cooking and reading, when she's not writing or researching.The most important thing in Sarah's life is her family. They are at the core of everything she does, so it would follow that family life should be the main focus of all of her novels. She discovered an obsession with family history more than 15 years ago when she learned her great aunt had suffered with post-natal depression and committed suicide, which was the inspiration for her first novel, 37 Downing Street. She is drawn to the more unusual characters from the past; those with an intriguing story to tell, investigating them thoroughly before adapting them for her stories.Sarah thrives when able to soak up new and fascinating historical information about subjects which have otherwise been forgotten by time and topics she knew little about. Each time she writes she attempts to challenge herself, both through her characters and narrative, in an attempt to keep some of the past alive. She is never happier than when she is buried in historical newspapers, census records, land and probate records, directories and electoral rolls.
