Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

The Colonel's Daughter

A poignant and emotional love story set in the 1950s and 60s

In the summer of 1954, young George West, qualified as an architect but completing his national service, meets 17 year old Josella Grace, daughter of a retired Colonel. He falls passionately in love with this reserved but beautiful girl - a love that seems destined never to be fulfilled. Their story, and its dark secrets, alternates between George's tale of first love in 1954 and Josella's bittersweet perspective, a decade later in 1964. Their unique voices chart the anguish, tragedy and despair, as their lives are led apart...

“Award-winning author Harrod-Eagles once again turns her substantial talents to a period romance...and creates vivid characters, an enthralling plot, and realistic ambience... Moving between 1954 ...and 1964, when the tale reaches a shattering climax, this dramatic, taut, and gripping romance is real treat for Harrod-Eagles fans old and new." EMILY MELTON, BOOKLIST
