Self-publishing requires a writer to take on all sorts of unfamiliar tasks. One of these is creating the enticing but brief ‘blurb’ that will describe your book to potential readers. You need to promise an exciting read without disclosing too much. Here’s my attempt to describe UNRAVELLED. I’d love to hear what you think.

Edward Jamieson’s memories of war and a passionate love affair resurface when an invitation to a World War I memorial ceremony arrives. Though reluctant to visit the scenes of horror he has spent years trying to forget, he succumbs to the unlikely possibility of discovering what happened to Helene, the woman he once pledged to marry.

In July 1936, travelling through the charming French countryside with his wife Ann, Edward sees nothing but reminders of war. At the dedication ceremony, an encounter with Helene reignites long-buried passion and Edward steps back into his past. The resulting affair puts Ann and Edward’s marriage at risk.

When World War II erupts, Edward is soon caught up in the world of training espionage agents while Ann counsels grieving women and copes with the daily threats facing those she loves. And once again, secrets and war threaten the bonds of marriage.

With events unfolding in Canada, France and England, UNRAVELLED is a poignant novel of love, duty and sacrifice set amongst the turmoil of two world wars.
