BBC Midlands Today Broadcast

IMG_2307 BBC I am delighted to share this interview from yesterday’s BBC Midlands Today cultural correspondent, Satnam Rana. She and a cameraman came to my house in Herefordshire to film. Luckily, after a misty start, the weather was good enough to sit in the garden. I think you will agree they did a beautiful job. Unfortunately, the file is too big to upload but hopefully I can sort it out anon.

Some Background

HQ, an imprint of HarperCollins, is to publish a powerful love story set during the Second World War, The Very White of Love, by acclaimed journalist S. C. Worrall. Editor Charlotte Mursell acquired UK and Commonwealth rights from Caspian Denis at Abner Stein.

A Chocolate Box Full Of Letters

The Very White of Love is based on a true story, inspired by the author’s discovery of a chocolate box full of love letters between his mother, Nancy, and her fiancé, Martin Preston, the nephew of the poet Robert Graves. Simon Worrall has pieced together the fictional narrative using these genuine letters to write a heartbreaking and timeless love story. After a whirlwind romance, Martin is sent to the battlefields of France in 1939, telling Nancy their love will keep them safe. Then one day, his letters stop. Nancy will do anything to find him, but will she unravel the mystery of his disappearance in time?
