Thanks to Michelle from Pebble Art for this amazing design and to my sister Heather for her ideas and understanding of what makes a great cover. I’m delighted with it. I’d love to have your comments and feedback.

I’m busy checking the proofs this week and publication isn’t far away.

    • Goodness, Bob, you should have written this book instead of me! You must have amazing memories of life in Belfast at that time. I remember the stories my grandmother, mother and aunts told about it and I researched quite a bit when writing the book. I’ll be interested to know what you think about ‘Martha’s Girls’ when it comes out. Alrene.
