A Restless Peace

In A Restless Peace, Barbara Murphy has written a warmhearted and perceptive account of the difficulties faced by many in adjusting to life after World War II.

Readers often ask what happened to Jane Harrison after the story of ‘Janey’s War’ ended. Jane had lived in the shadow of her twin until Rose was tragically killed in 1944, but on VE Day, Jane became engaged to a handsome Norwegian, planning to move to his remote mountain village. A paperback version of ‘Janey’s War’ can also be obtained via Amazon, priced at £6.99.

Now ‘A Restless Peace’ continues her story, until Coronation Day in 1953

In the strange aftermath of war and a broken engagement, Jane’s confidence is boosted when Paul, a photographer filming in Paris, invites her to join him for Christmas, but the romantic dream becomes a horror movie. Jane desperately needs to tell someone of her fears that French police might be on her trail. Her mother has always been distant to Jane, who now blames Sandy, once a close friend, for betraying Rose and causing her death. When someone from Rose’s past awakens dark memories, Jane wonders who she can truly trust.

Barbara has another e-book on Kindle, ‘A Phantom of Delight’, about a girl frozen for 200 years until global warming helps her along to a remote Scottish island.

A fantasy, totally different to the Jane Harrison stories, but with romance, excitement and an element of truth in good measure.
