Set in a Glasgow tenement in WW2, we follow shy, kind-hearted Jean as she navigates coming of age against the horrors of war, finding hope and even love in the darkest of times. Carol has created an incredible ensemble of characters who will all tug on the readers’ heartstrings, and we are just so excited to launch her debut saga in spring 2022.’

‘I was thrilled when Keshini called me to say she loved my book and offered me a two book deal with Hera. It is a dream come true and I’m looking forward to working with Keshini and Lindsey to introduce Jean and her family and friends to readers.’
