New Novel Honouring Forgotten Somme Soldier
Today marks both the 100th anniversary of the end of The Battle of the Somme and the publication day of former foreign diplomat Edward Glover’s new book A Motif of Seasons. The book is dedicated to a Private Lawrence, a soldier who died in the Somme one hundred years ago.
Edward Glover is a self-published author of three historical novels; A Motif of Seasons is the final instalment in the engrossing Herzberg Trilogy which tells the story of two waring families across the decades. The final novel is set in the First World War and explores the lives of three women who struggle to assert their individuality in a ridged and conventional society.
A Motif of Season has been reviewed in magazines such as The Lady and North Norfolk Living and has been described as “an ambitious book”. Today special copies of the book will be distributed across the London Underground by the book-loving group Books on the Underground.
Edward will be on air with BBC Radio Norfolk’s Matthew Gudgin this afternoon at 4.40 talking about A Motif of Seasons and what life was like for those fighting on the front lines.
