Tony Nash about this book: A very ordinary family goes to war, and its members become extraordinary. I wanted to write this book as a sequel to my 'Norfolk Trilogy', which began in 1788, with 'A Handful of Destiny' and which took the family into the 1920s, after going through WWI with 'A Handful of Courage'. The 220000 words took me four months to write - half of which time was spent in research, in order to make the details completely authentic. Though the novel is about warfare; in particular the French and Belgian resistance, Love also flows through its pages.
The title expresses the hope and sorrow occasioned by those years of war. A snippet at the end leads into another series, featuring one of the children, Emma, who though forced to kill, discovers that she has a natural ability as an assassin, and I envisage her becoming an accomplished spy, working for her wartime boss, Commander Charles Gregory. My one desire, in creating this book, has been, as always, to produce a fully believable, fictional world that enthralls the reader throughout, and leaves a tear on the cheek at the end.
