💫 Welcome to Love Books Group
Everyone has that one special author that means something extra special to them. Mine would be Beryl Kingston. When I had exhausted all the Judy Blume books and nothing else appealed in the kid’s section of John Menzies in 1994.
My nana asked the sales assistant for a recommendation, I was a very young natured 15-year-old. The sales lady showed us to a book called Maggie’s Boy by Beryl Kingston. There at that moment started my love of all things, Beryl.
For years I have spoken to friends about Maggie’s Boy and War Baby. I devoured the stories and I loved the more mature feeling moving from kids fiction to adults. Because there really wasn’t any young adult books back then.
So imagine my delight last week when Agora Books emailed me to tell me that Beryl Kingston had a re-release. WHAT? Mind is blown, I nearly cried. My copy of Two Silver Crosses arrived on Saturday. A really massive highlight of 2019 for me. I cannot wait to dive in. I will put all the information below and really if you haven’t yet had the honour to read Beryl Kingston’s work then don’t think just buy it. I know that the book will be filled with emotion and heart.
Special mention to Peyton at Agora Books. Great big muckle thanks for reaching out with the invite to review. You have no idea what a big deal it was for me. Beryl Kingston is amazing and it makes me remember the times I sat with my nana and talked about the books. So Peyton, thank you.
-Back of the Book
Nobody is to know where we are. You must forget England. That part of your lives is over.’
Twins Ginny and Emily Holborn have everything they could ever need in their Wolverhampton home: a loving family, a garden to play in and a staff waiting to attend to their every need. Until, one summer day in 1926, they disappear without a trace.
Ten years later, bright-eyed solicitor Charlie Commoner is given his first job: track down the still-missing Holborn twins. Despatched to France, he’s left to unravel a web of infidelity, mystery, and terrifying family secrets.
Let bestselling author Beryl Kingston sweep you away on a journey from London to Paris, through tragedy and triumph in the search for two sisters wearing two silver crosses.
