#Spotlight: Sisters at War by Clare Flynn

A dramatic and emotional wartime novel
1940 Liverpool. The pressures of war threaten to tear apart two sisters traumatised by their mother's murder by their father.

With her new husband Will, a merchant seaman, deployed on dangerous Atlantic convoy missions, Hannah needs her younger sister Judith more than ever. But when Mussolini declares war on Britain, Judith's Italian sweetheart, Paolo is imprisoned as an enemy alien, and Judith's loyalties are divided.

Each sister wants only to be with the man she loves but, as the war progresses, tensions between them boil over, and they face an impossible decision.

A heart-wrenching page-turner about the everyday bravery of ordinary people during wartime. From heavily blitzed Liverpool to the terrors of the North Atlantic and the scorched plains of Australia, Sisters at War will bring tears to your eyes and joy to your heart.
A former global marketing director, Clare lives in Eastbourne. She is a fluent Italian speaker and loves spending time in Italy. In her spare time she likes to quilt, paint and travel as often and as widely as possible.

Author of eleven historical novels and a short story collection, Flynn is an active member of The Historical Novel Society, The Romantic Novelists Association, The Alliance of Independent Authors, and The Society of Authors. More information about her books can be found at
