Winter in Paradise Square

(The second book in the Forresters series)
A novel by

Winter in Paradise Square is the second book of the Forrester Family Saga and will appeal to followers of Downton Abbey, South Riding, Upstairs Downstairs and to anyone who enjoys traditional and well written stories about people facing and overcoming life's challenges and pitfalls. It has been compared to R. F. Delderfield's A Horseman Riding By, The Swann Family Saga and The Dreaming Suburb, and the writing of Harry Bowling.

Rose and Edward Forrester's youngest daughters are absolute opposites in their looks and they seem to have entirely different characters.
Eve might be mistaken for Lizzie's daughter. Dark, tall and striking she is practical and protective and training to become a nurse. That appears to be where her future lies until she finds herself caring for a young suffragette who is suffering from the affects of repeated hunger strikes and forced feeding.
Against her parents' wishes Eve attends several suffrage meetings and becomes increasingly involved in the suffrage movement even though it divides her family and exposes them to the unwanted attention of the newspapers and those from whom her mother, Rose, has been hiding for twenty years.
Eve's twin sister Lottie is small and pretty, an artistic dreamer whom her family believe must be protected from life's harsher realities. She is engaged and it seems that she will simply follow the life that is being mapped out for her. But Lottie has a secret she cannot reveal to anyone - a secret which takes her on a course that no-one could have predicted and which has calamitous results for her parents.
As Edward tries desperately to hold his fragmenting family together the world topples into the abyss of its first World War, and all the secrets Lizzie, Rose and Edward have tried to hide slowly but relentlessly reveal themselves and add a further dimension to the lives of all those who become involved in any way with the Forrester family - especially the privileged Lady Braithewaite and her son Robert, and the mysterious Katarina Komovskaya and her three sons, who are apparently fleeing Tsarist Russia.

This Second Edition of Winter in Paradise Square includes an additional chapter which did not appear in the hardback or paperback First Edition.

The sequels in this series are
Spring on Hope Street - which will be available early 2015
Summer in Solomon's Court - which will be available later in 2015
