“Elizabeth Speller has a wonderful feel for the era ….. a heart rending story of shattered hopes and dreams” The Times
Author Elizabeth Speller will be talking about her new novel At Break of Day at Salisbury Library on Monday 11 May at 7pm. The talk is free as part of the Wilshire at War: Community Stories programme of activities. Please book in advance by ringing (01722) 324145.
The novel is the story of four very different men, leading very different lives, who find themselves brought together at daybreak on 1 July 1916: the beginning of the Battle of the Somme. A day many believe saw the end of the old world and its dreams.
