We've no plans for a sequel, but it's wonderful to know that you cared enough about Paul, Lorna & co to want to know what happened next. My next book, IN ANOTHER TIME, is another story set in Scotland during WW2, and will be out next August though, so hopefully that will interest you too. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Thanks again for getting in touch, and apols again for taking to so long to find it!

I'm told that the US edition should go on Amazon.com for pre-order about six months before the August 28th publication date, so that will in about March. But I noticed that the UK edition is already available for pre-order on Amazon UK - that one's out a week after the US, on September 6th. I'm excited you'd like to pre-order already, but have to ask for just a little more patience! If you keep an eye on my FB page or Twitter/IG accounts, I'll post as soon as preorders open, I promise!
Thanks for being so keen - it means a lot to me!

“And if he was kind and friendly and funny, and if he told you about places so beautiful that you wanted to go with him to see them, and if he listened to you talk like he actually cared about what you were saying?
And if he tried to protect you when other people tried to tell you what to do, as if they owned you? And if he has the handsomest face you've ever seen, no matter if the skin has been damaged, because he's just lovely even so?”
Caroline Leech, Wait for Me

"You will never lose me." Paul kissed the top of her head. "And even if I have to leave, you must know that I will come back to you again. If you'll wait for me?”
