    A gripping tale of ordinary people caught up in a global conflict

    About the Book:
    It is England, 1916.

    The Great War shows no sign of ending. Despite the gloom, the Southdown battalions, full of friends and family, march to war on a wave of patriotic fervour.

    With three sons overseas, Agnes Davison searches for the strength to bring her community together. She echoes the sentiments of wives and mothers everywhere trying desperately to help the men they love. In a world blighted by prejudice and social order the birth of the Women’s Institute brings fresh hope; and in Agnes, a champion for the cause awaits.

    But on the eve of the battle of the Somme, even her courage will face the ultimate test, as the Southdown Battalions are ordered forward in a diversionary attack. Here in just a few desperate hours, the lives and loves of hundreds of families, will come together in one gallant charge. A charge that will be struck from the record books forever…

    James Sowerby’s eagerly awaited sequel to The Whistle, is a gripping tale of ordinary people caught up in the maelstrom of global conflict. With a wonderful eye for detail, Sowerby’s powerful storytelling will challenge your emotions throughout, and leave you desperate for more.

    About the Author:
    James grew up in Yorkshire and believes his earliest foray into the world of fiction was listening to his father’s long and very entertaining bedtime stories. A love of the arts was nurtured in his school days and continued through university and beyond. But above all else James has had a lifelong love of history through the ages, which his crowded bookshelves and hundreds of holiday diversions pay witness to.

    Historical research work on the two world wars, combined with further battlefield trips to the region, triggered a desire to tell the stories of the ordinary men and women involved at home and on the front lines. Since then, numerous writing courses have followed, as James has worked alongside some of the leading authors in the world to learn the art of combining fact and fiction. This is the second book in the Davison Family Saga, set during World War One, which encapsulates all his interests.

    James brings compassion and humour into everything he creates, and a very experienced eye for detail. He has in turn begun tutoring the next generation of aspiring writers, which he finds immensely rewarding. But put simply, he just loves to tell stories.

    James is also currently republishing his first book entitled “The Whistle” (ISBN: 978-1-80031-209-8) in hardback, paperback and e-book formats, which will be available through all good retailers including, Waterstones and Barnes & Noble.
