  • The Colonel's Daughter
    by Harrod-Eagles, Cynthia

    A hugely poignant and emotional love story set in 1950s and 1960s England and
    Scotland. In the early summer of 1954, young George West, qualified as an
    architect but completing his national service, meets 17 year old Josella Grace,
    daughter of a retired Colonel. He falls passionately in love with this reserved
    but beautiful girl - a love that seems destined never to be fulfilled. Their
    story, and its dark secrets, alternates between George's tale of first love in
    1954 and Josella's bittersweet perspective, a decade later in 1964, of the
    difficulties of her relationships. Their unique voices chart the anguish,
    tragedy and despair, as their lives are led apart, without hope of a happy
    reunion.

    Arcane Society -and to a legacy of madness that could plunge Caleb into the
    depths of his own tortured soul. . . .
