1918 – WWI: THE GREAT WAR
RHYS BOWEN, known best for her historical novels, is back with romance in THE VICTORY GARDEN (LakeUnionPublishing). This time it is 1918 – WWI, known as the Great War.
Emily Bryce is a girl raised in privilege. Rarely does she face hardship, but that’s about to change. Her best friend is a nurse serving on the front lines, but Emily is turned away from such a dangerous job. Instead, she becomes a “Land Girl” in the English countryside, working on the Devonshire estate of Lady Charleton. There she finds a journal and a life she never could have dreamed of.
THE VICTORY GARDEN is an honest portrayal of what life was a century ago and the characters are relatable. The ultimate truth I took away was how important it is to be true to yourself, and to trust your authenticity, despite what challenges might come your way.
Rhys Bowen is the New York Times Bestselling Author of the Royal Spyness Series, Molly Murphy Mysteries, and Constable Evans. She has won the Agatha Best Novel Award and has been nominated for the Edgar Best Novel. Rhys’s titles have received rave reviews around the globe.
On March 1, 2017, Rhys is excited to announce the publication of her first big stand-alone thriller, In Farleigh Field, set in World War Two at an English stately home. It has already received stellar reviews.
Rhys currently writes two mystery series, the atmospheric Molly Murphy novels, about a feisty Irish immigrant in 1900s New York City, and the funny and sexy Royal Spyness mysteries, about a penniless minor royal in 1930s Britain. Her books have made bestseller lists, garnered many awards, nominations, and starred reviews. She was born in England and married into a family with historic royal connections.
