The enduring story, Betweenwhiles: A family between two wars – a true story of rebellion against Nazism, crosses many genres: romance, war-story, memoir, historical literature, and family saga.
Betweenwhiles is a riveting stand-alone story, and the poignant sequel to my first book, Mizpah Cousins: Life, love and perilous predicaments during the Great War era
A family, separated, devastated by the First World War, seek to reunite in the chaos of post-war Europe. The story begins in 1920. The euphoria of the peace has given way to the reality of a new, challenging normal. The joys, heartache, and tragedies shared in an extended family – lending support to each other during hard times.
During the 1930s as fascism reared its ugly head, Betweenwhiles reveals a brave story of rebellion against Nazism. And, how Londoners fought against Mosely’s Blackshirts. Betweenwhiles explores many issues; love between a mature widower, and a young woman; an altar boy abused by his priest. The memoir of a German anti-Nazi activist, tells of his imprisonment and torture by the Gestapo. This anthology of family stories weaves a fascinating insight into individual journeys through a dark epoch.
