Introducing 'Violet's War'

Book Summary

SING TO SILENT STONES is a remarkable saga based on a good deal of fact researched from the author s fascinating family history. David Snell was born at the close of the 2nd World War to parents who were both wartime pilots.

As a boy the exploits of daring do fired his imagination. As a young man, a changing world led him to question the morals and ethics of war. But maturity brought him the understanding of the commitment that his parents, and so many others, had made and the beliefs and certainties that governed their actions.

The story within SING TO SILENT STONES: Violet s War (the first of two volumes), is largely fictional but it does, nevertheless, incorporate very many true tales from David's, and his wife Linda's, family.

It explores the changing attitudes to the roles of men and women and the issues of illegitimacy. It begs the question as to how and why friendships across the divides of nationality, race and religion can survive in a world in conflict. And it weaves these stories within the context of the true happenings of the period.
