Kay Brellend, the third of six children, was born in North London but now lives in a Victorian farmhouse in Suffolk. Under a pseudonym she has written sixteen historical novels published in England and North America. This is her first novel set in the twentieth century and was inspired by her grandmother's reminiscences about her early life in Campbell Road, Islington.
Praise for Kay Brellend from five-star reviews on Amazon.co.uk: Brilliant read! Really takes you through a journey of hardship love hate etc. Was gripped from beginning to end!!! By Woo This book was excellent, I didn't want it to end. Reading it made me feel like I was living in the era the book was set in. By Amanda Bicknell What a wonderful read...having been born near this area l could see the places and people as described, could not wait to read a few more chapters each night but was so sad when l finished it. By LondonSue loved this book the sort you pickup and can't put back down, the setting and characters really come to life, it's as if you can see it and breath it. Wonderful. By K
