About the book
Set in Kent as the country still reels from the impact of the First World War whilst the Second approaches, this historical novel follows the lives of four characters: Hubert, Geoffrey, Anstace and Delia as they grow together in the most uncertain times.
Tackling issues of what it means to be a man in a world where so many have lost their lives to militarism and yet pacifism is still judged so harshly, and how love is tested by such extremes and what it takes to endure, That They Might Lovely Be is a captivating read, perfect for fans of Patrick Gale and Anna Hope. This is a book which tackles really topical issues from an exciting new voice in literary fiction.
That They Might Lovely Be was published by Top Hat Books earlier this month. You can order a copy online here.
