THE JUDITH LENNOX WARTIME COLLECTION is an unforgettable omnibus of three mesmerising novels set during the First and Second World Wars: THE SECRET YEARS, THE SHADOW CHILD and ALL MY SISTERS. A beautiful collection of wartime novels not to be missed by fans of Lucinda Riley and Rachel Hore. THE SECRET YEARS During the golden summer of 1914, four young people play in the gardens of Drakesden Abbey. When an ancient Blythe family heirloom disappears an uncontrollable chain of events is set in motion. The passions and enmities of the four friends intensifies in the passing years, and they have to experience tragedy and betrayal before the heirloom makes its reappearance and, with it, a new hope for the future. THE SHADOW CHILD On the eve of the First World War, fourteen-year-old Alix Gregory is holidaying in France with the Lanchbury family. When two-year-old Charlie Lanchbury disappears whilst Alix is looking after him, she is blamed and cannot escape from the resulting fallout. Through her marriage and the birth of her son she finds happiness, yet she is haunted by the loss of her baby cousin. As the years pass and the world descends into the horrors of war once more, the question remains: will Charlie Lanchbury ever be found? ALL MY SISTERS In the tumultuous years before the First World War, four sisters seek to fulfil their ambitions. Pretty Iris dreams of a grand marriage, quiet Marianne meets the love of her life, and passionate Eva longs for independence. Only Clemency, caring for her invalid mother, remains tied to the family home. Years pass and the war changes the lives of all the sisters as they endeavour to discover love at last.

The two girls become firm friends, and when Miranda falls in love with a young Parisian, Kay helps her keep the relationship secret. But Konstantin learns of the affair and promptly dismisses Kay, leaving her penniless and stranded in Nazi Berlin. By chance she meets Tom Blacklock, who pays for her ticket home, and is destined to play an important part in her life. As for Miranda, she makes a decision that will put her in the path of disaster.

'I have fallen completely in love with Judith Lennox's writing - she's a fantastic storyteller!' Jill Mansell With the onset of war, everything changes... Judith Lennox writes an unforgettable novel of enduring love and the tides of fortune in the compelling novel Footprints on the Sand. Perfect for fans of Dinah Jefferies and Lucinda Riley. The Mulgraves are a rootless, bohemian family who travel the continent, staying in crumbling Italian palazzos, Spanish villas, French vineyards - belonging nowhere, picking up friends and hangers-on as they go, and moving on when Ralph Mulgrave's latest enthusiasm dwindles. Faith, the eldest child of the family, longs for a proper home. But in 1940, Germany invades France and the Mulgraves are forced to flee to England. Faith and her brother Jake go to London, while Ralph reluctantly settles in a Norfolk cottage with the remnants of his family. In the intense and dangerous landscape of wartime London Faith finds work as an ambulance driver, and meets once again one of Ralph's retinue from those distant and, in retrospect, golden days of childhood. Through war and its aftermath, it is Faith on whom the family relies, Faith who offers support and succour, and Faith who is constant and true in her love. What readers are saying about Footprints on the Sand: 'Curl up and get lost in this wonderfully written book that takes you from early 1900 through to the 1960s' '[Judith Lennox] can paint a picture so vividly in your mind, make you care about her characters, make you feel the anguish, the partings, the love that is taken away and then given back. A wonderful read' 'Such wonderful escapism - well written and compelling!'

Perfect for fans of Lucinda Riley and Kate Morton. 'The unforgettable story of the secrets that can bind a family or ultimately destroy one' - Reading Evening Post It's 1915 when young Bess Ravenhart, recently widowed, leaves her baby son Frazer with her mother-in-law, Cora, while she sails from India to Britain to set up a home.

You really care about the characters and as such are gripped to the last page' 'One of the best books I have ever read'
