Here is a Press Release which gives the background to the book:
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.
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. The letters are 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?
‘Beautifully written and a true piece of history, Simon has pieced together a story that has just been waiting to be told for over seventy years. HQ are immensely proud to be publishing The Very White of Love.’
The Very White of Love will be published in hardback, eBook and audio book on the 14th June 2018.
