Book is a historical novel set in the first month of the Great War which tries to outline the effect of the events of those first few weeks on a small community in a Kent village. It is called: A Pattern of Shadows. It took 6 years to write, mainly due to the amount of research I had to carry out. There are many more details in the web site.
It was superficial, I know, but at first I liked your smile. You seemed rather content with your place in the world, and I thought to myself, I'd like to have a friend like that. Thanks for accepting me and good luck with your work.
Hi Ralph! I was pleased to see both of us use history to tell the story. The Great War is always an interesting subject, at the moment I'm reading "Silent Night" which covers the truce on Christmas Eve.
