1939: Irena is a young medical student living in Warsaw when the German army invade Poland. Those closest to her are dying and when Irena realises that no one is coming to Poland's aid, it's clear that she is alone.
Forced to flee to Britain, Irena meets Richard, a RAF pilot who she's instantly drawn to and there's a glimmer of happiness on the horizon. And then the war becomes more brutal and in order to right a never-forgotten wrong Irena must make an impossible decision.
1989: Decades later, Sarah's mother is left a home in Skye and another in Edinburgh following the death of Lord Glendale, a man she's never met, and only on the condition that Magdalena Drobnik, a woman she's never heard of, is no longer alive.
Sarah's only clues to this mystery are two photographs she doesn't understand but she's determined to discover the truth, not knowing that she's about to begin a journey that will change her life. Gripping, poignant, and honest, We Shall Remember is an incredibly powerful story about the choices we make under fire. It will stay with you long after you've turned the final page.

"Fans of Lily Baxter and other saga authors will enjoy". (The Bookseller)
"Based on true events. This is first rate." (Lovereading)
"A touching, thought-provoking saga." (Lancaster Guardian)
This is wonderful. Well worth the read. I am a fan of historical fiction, particularly the World Wars. This one does justice.
Historical fiction is bittersweet. The lives, the experience, the emotion, and the loss. The stories draw up the empathy in our hearts and souls.
