A moving novel set in the aftermath of the First World War, rich in historical detail and emotion.
Liz Trenow is a former journalist who spent fifteen years on regional and national newspapers, and on BBC radio and television news, before turning her hand to fiction. In Love and War is her fifth novel. She lives in East Anglia with her artist husband, and they have two grown up daughters and two beautiful grandchildren.
The aftermath of war can be ferocious. This gentle and thoughtful
story concentrates on the positives, without ignoring the
destruction and pain of an epic conflict * Daily Mail *
Praise for The Silk Weaver: What a delicious read The Silk Weaver is. I was enchanted by this novel set in eighteenth-century Spitalfields; meticulously researched, richly detailed, the brilliantly structured story shimmered as the threads of silk wound through its pages. I devoured it in two days and was gripped from start to finish. The characters shine too and Anna is an absolute triumph. A fabulous book -- Dinah Jefferies
