The war is over...In Bristol, three very different women wait for their loved ones to return home. But Edna's fiance returns badly crippled. And Charlotte's husband comes back a very different creature to the kind, gentle man she remembers. And as for Polly, her GI boyfriend doesn't come back at all, leaving her with a bun in the oven and a scandal in the making...Note: originally published as THE REST OF OUR LIVES, by Jeannie Johnson
Lizzie's first writing job was compiling the instructions for flat pack kitchens! She apologises for any confusion caused but it's not as easy as you might think. As a child she made up stories off the top of her head for her siblings, pretended at school that she couldn't read - Janet and John just didn't inspire her - whilst reading the Greek Legends and Grimms' Fairy Tales at home. It was an American author friend who suggested that Lizzie turned her hand to writing, so she did, drawing a great deal on her mother's history; her mother was also a great story teller, plus she'd always had a great love of history, books and anything that stirred the imagination. Lizzie currently lives with her husband on a 46ft sailing yacht, dividing her time between Bath and the Med. Sometimes they mix with the jet set and sometimes they just chill out in a bay with a computer, a warm breeze and a gin and tonic!
