THE GREAT WAR SAGAS are absorbing and heart-rending tales of two passionate women: a suffragette, and a conscientious objector. In a world on the cusp of momentous changes and world war, their lives are turned upside down by tragedy and each face very different troubles - family feud, imprisonment, forbidden love and tragic loss - but both are determined to fight to end for their beliefs and the people they love. Stirring, passionate and uplifting.
A Crimson Dawn
Emmie Kelso is only nine years old when she is rescued from a dingy Gateshead tenement and sent to Crawdene for her health; taken in to the vibrant, loving household of the MacRaes, a radical mining family, and joins the cause of women's emancipation. Blossoming into a pretty, spirited young woman, Emmie is swept off her feet by handsome miner Tom Curran, but learns too late of his possessive, violent nature. As war engulfs Europe in 1914, Tom enlists but Emmie joins the MacRaes and others in their cries for peace. Working alongside Rab, the MacRaes eldest son, their childhood devotion to each other sparks into love. But when Rab is arrested as a conscientious objector and Emmie becomes an outcast in her own home, her ideals and love are put to the ultimate test, in this dramatic and heart-wrenching story.
Set against the fascinating backdrop of the Great War, A CRIMSON DAWN is gripping and impassioned.

No Greater Love
Raised in the slums of Edwardian Tyneside, spirited and out-spoken Maggie Beaton joins the ranks of the suffragettes, determined to prove herself to her more wealthy comrades, in particular Alice Pearson, haughty daughter of the powerful local shipbuilder. But the consequences are devastating and Maggie is soon a fugitive, spurned by family and friends. Only militant trade unionist and passionate man, George Gordon, stands by her and for a blissful time his love is enough. But war is looming and Maggie's courage and endurance will be tested to the limit, in this heartbreakingly moving novel of one woman's fight for personal freedom.
