“I know you are the one. The valley awoke when you arrived, and you were shown things, special things… there’s a connection, a link, between us. I know you are the one I’ve been waiting for.” On a family visit to the Derwent Valley in Derbyshire, Eleanor's world changes forever. Her senses assaulted by countless explosions, she experiences the horror of a battlefield; standing high on the valley side, she sees the village from nearly a century before it was drowned by the waters of the lake. Who is the ghost-like figure she sees amongst the trees? And the old woman who gives her the ancient diary? What is the connection that binds Eleanor, a child of the 21st century and Cam, a soldier from the First World War? Across decades of time, Eleanor and Cam find their lives intertwined in a quest to unlock the events of the past. Set at the turn of the new century and in a time before that, Silent Valley is a story about love and endings, survival and the horror of war.

This is Mark's first published novel, although he has been writing for many years. Inspired by love poetry from the trenches and the stories of the pals battalions raised by the cities, towns and villages of Northern Britain during World War One, Mark's imagination took off. One day he found himself in the Derwent Valley - the Silent Valley - a special place, full of history, and full of tales of love and loss... and the story was born.
