Freda Lightfoot

I’m currently organising a blog tour for Freda Lightfoot with her historical fiction novel, Girls of the Great War.

Here’s the blurb:

Girls of the Great War

Cecily Hanson longs to live life on her own terms—to leave the shadow of her overbearing mother and marry her childhood sweetheart once he returns from the Great War. But when her fiancé is lost at sea, this future is shattered. Looking for meaning again, she decides to perform for the troops in France.

Life on the front line is both rewarding and terrifying, and Cecily soon finds herself more involved—and more in danger—than she ever thought possible. And her family has followed her to France. Her sister, Merryn, has fallen for a young drummer whose charm hides a dark side, while their mother, Queenie—a faded star of the stage tormented by her own secret heartache—seems set on a path of self-destruction.

As the war draws to a close and their hopes turn once again to the future, Cecily and Merryn are more determined than ever to unravel the truth about their mother’s past: what has she been hiding from them—and why?

Girls of the Great War will be published on 22nd May, and is available for pre-order at Amazon UK and Amazon US.


The tour runs from 28th May – 8th June (weekdays only). I’m looking for ten blogs which will host guest blogs or interviews. A Netgalley link is also available for those wishing to review.
