"In good times, sing. In bad times, sing. In the most terrible time of all, yes, then too you must sing."
London, 1950 - on the eve of her retirement, soprano Lucia Percival is star billing at the Royal Albert Hall. Two nights before her performance, a young, ambitious critic requests an interview. But he discovers she has no intention of going onstage...London, 1917 - A young exile from Jamaica, Lucia Percival is struggling against poverty and racial prejudice to try and make it as a musician. But she carries a heavy secret from her time in a field hospital near the Western Front the year before. When she encounters Lilian, an old woman damaged and haunted by the war, she is drawn into a pact that could destroy everything she has striven for.From Jamaica to England and France; from the battlefields and the mean streets of Glasgow to black society in London, Lucia's story unfolds to tell a tale of motherhood, music, loss and redemption.
The author would like to thank Richie Cumberlidge at More Visual Ltd for helping her envision the ideal cover, and warmly recommends More Visual to authors and publishers. Readers of White Feathers will recognise Lucia and her milieu; I felt it was far past time that she tell her own story and can't wait to share it.
Lucia’s War is published on 30th April 2020.
