The Dark Edge of the Rainbow, is a moving and at times, heart breaking account of an ordinary family, living through World War Two. From the eerie moment they find out they are at war to the telegrams they receive and their constant change of home.

Three children under ten and one brave mother are tested to the brink, but through all this, are constantly there for each other as they learn how to survive and find joy in the strangest places.

You will be glad you picked this book up.

The Dark Edge of the Rainbow is my debut novel.
