About this Event

We are delighted to have Colchester author Liz Trenow coming to the store to talk about her new novel, "Under A Wartime Sky". It's based on true events that happened at Mawdlsey House, a Victorian gothic mansion, which had been taken over as a secret research centre for the development of Radar. At the heart of the story is a budding romance between a shy boffin called Vic and a local girl called Kath. He encourages her to become a WAAF so she can be radar operative at the station. At the height of the Battle of Britain, under increasing strain, Kath tracks a plane that is behaving oddly and as a result it is shot down, only for her to find out later that the bomber her brother was piloting has gone missing on the same night. Vic & Kath haven't met for more than thirty years when he stumbles into her teashop but it will the most important meeting of their lives. If you find this intriguing please come to the talk to find out more. The talks Liz gives are usually very popular so please buy a ticket in advance. There will be complementary wine and nibbles.
