Lilian Harry’s novels will bring a lump to your throat, a smile to your lips and a tug of nostalgia to your heart. Goodbye Sweetheart was the first in a series of bestselling books set in wartime Portsmouth. Her new series of Burracombe novels are set in a village in post-war Devon and combine the dramas of village life with compelling storylines and a picture of community life that is long passed. With her novels selling over one and a half million copies and each new title a candidate for major customer promotions, her new title, Weddings in Burracombe (Orion, 2013), will be eagerly awaited by her army of fans.
Lilian Harry grew up close to Portsmouth Harbour, where her earliest memories are of nights spent in an air raid shelter listening to the drone of enemy aircraft and the thunder of exploding bombs. She now lives on the edge of Dartmoor where she has two minature schnauzers and a ginger cat to love and laugh at.
