Easy isn’t it?

Here’s what the book is about

A masterfully written story of yearning and love in 1920 as a nation grieves – one soul, one person at a time. The body of the Unknown Warrior is coming home, can Britain find peace?

Margate 1920. The Great War is over but Britain mourns and its spirit is not yet mended.

Edward and William have returned from the front as changed men. Together they have survived grotesque horrors and remain haunted by memories of comrades who did not come home. The summer season in Margate is a chance for them to rebuild their lives and reconcile the past.

Evelyn and Catherine are young women ready to live life to the full. Their independence has been hard won and, with little knowledge of the cost of their freedom, they are ready to face new challenges side by side.

Can they define their own future and open their hearts to the prospect of finding love? Will the summer of 1920 be a turning point for these new friends? As the body of the Unknown Warrior is returned, can the nation find a way forward?

Thanks to Anne Cater at Random Things Tours for inviting me to take part in the blogtour. The Blue Bench is available now from Bluescale Publishing in paperback, ebook or audiobook formats. You can order a copy online here: The Blue Bench

About the author

Paul grew up in a west London suburb and now lives in Berkshire with his wife and two children. He is passionate about music, sport and, most of all, writing, on which he now concentrates full-time. Paul has written four novels and his primary literary ambition is that you enjoy reading them while he is hard at work on the next one (but still finding time to play drums with Redlands and Rags 2 Riches).

  1. Hi Joanne,

    Thanks for hosting this leg of the blog tour for The Blue Bench. I’m excited to be offering a free audio version of the book as the narration, by Colleen MacMahon, is amazing. Meantime, if any of your readers have any questions or comments on the book I’d love to see them.

    Best wishes,
