June 1963, Clematis Cottage, Stoke St. Mary, Herefordshire I am really not sure why I am writing this. A foolish whim by a foolish old lady and it will probably sit in a box unread and decay much like its writer when Death makes his careless decision. But perhaps someone will find it. Someone will care enough to read and somehow I know that will happen. April 2000, Clematis Cottage, Stoke St. Mary, Hereford Tired of her life in London, freelance illustrator Rachel buys the beautiful but dilapidated Clematis Cottage and sets about creating the home of her dreams. But tucked away behind the water tank in the attic and left to gather dust for decades is an old biscuit tin containing letters, postcards and a diary. So much more than old scraps of paper, these are precious memories that tell the story of Henrietta Trenchard-Lewis, the love she lost in the Great War and the girl who was left behind.

The Girl You Left BehindAbout the Author:
I used to live in London, where I worked in the theatre. Then I got the bizarre job of teaching road safety to the U.S. navy - in Marble Arch! A few years ago, I did an 'Escape to the Country'. I now live in a tiny Herefordshire village, where I scandalise the neighbours by not keeping 'country hours' and being unable to make a decent pot of plum jam. Home is a converted oast house, which I share with my two beloved spaniels, husband (also beloved) and a ghost called Zoe. I've been lucky enough to travel widely, though prefer to set my novels closer to home. Perhaps more research is needed? I've always wanted to base a book in the Caribbean! I am addicted to Belgian chocolate, Jane Austen and, most of all, Strictly Come Dancing. Keep dancing, everyone!
