A Time in a City.

Young Kate makes her way from a pastoral village to an industrial city; a quiet, kindly story of lives behind the lines of WWI. Follows An Hour in the Morning.



Summer of the Zeppelin.

Elvie and Clarry plan to run away and live in an old abandoned house, but someone else finds it too, a German prisoner of war who becomes their friend. A novel of WW I, with the physical horror gentled but the confused loyalties & friendships stark.



No Hero for the Kaiser.

A Polish boy, Jan, taken with the Germans in pursuit of the Russians, learns too much about war and rejects its glories totally. Highly acclaimed initially, then banned and publicly burned in 1933 by the Third Reich.
