Set in Liverpool during the Second World War, this is a tale of love, loss, and the strength of one young woman who overcomes the odds.
Katie Flynn is the pen name of the much-loved writer, Judy Turner,
who published over ninety novels in her lifetime. Judy's unique
stories were inspired by hearing family recollections of life in
Liverpool during the early twentieth century, and her books went on
to sell more than eight million copies. Judy passed away in January
2019, aged 82.
The legacy of Katie Flynn lives on through her daughter, Holly Flynn, who continues to write under the Katie Flynn name. Holly worked as an assistant to her mother for many years and together they co-authored a number of Katie Flynn novels, including Christmas at Tuppenny Corner.
Holly lives in the north east of Wales with her husband Simon and their two children. When she's not writing she enjoys walking her two lurchers, Sparky and Snoopy, in the surrounding countryside, and cooking forbidden foods such as pies, cakes and puddings! She looks forward to sharing many more Katie Flynn stories, which she and her mother devised together, with readers in the years to come.
