Clouds in my Guernsey Sky
June 1940 and war is sweeping across Europe. In the tiny Channel Island of Guernsey, Kathleen is about to board a ship that will take her to safety. As they embrace, Charles tells her he will see her again soon; a couple more shifts as an essential worker and he will be free to follow. But his plans are soon to be thwarted by the arrival of the Germans.
Decades later, when an email from a stranger brings a whisper from the past, Charles and Kathleen’s legacy begins to unfold. As the cold, lonely echoes of war begin to rewrite her family’s story, their daughter is left to discover that, sometimes, it is the people closest to us that surprise us the most.
“Many books have been written about Guernsey’s occupation years but none have pulled at my heartstrings as much as this one. Clouds in my Guernsey Sky is truly a journey through Love, Truth and Hope. It is a book that many, like me, will relate to; a book that your can’t put down until the end.” Dame Mary Perkins
“Incredibly moving and thought provoking. This book sensitively and empathetically reveals extraordinary family truths which have been buried since Guernsey’s occupation. I loved it!” Dawn O’Porter
