Rhubarbs and Circuses, by Sally Winter

d813635a-052e-4829-9bcd-f512aa0cca7d

Annie is a young woman living and playing in contemporary London. She is motivated by money, status and her high-flying career. However, her material world is suddenly overshadowed by the passing of her dearly-loved grandfather. As a result, she struggles to hold her life together.

One day, while visiting a war memorial by the river Thames, a sinister occurrence leaves Annie questioning her own sanity. With no surviving family to turn to, her life spirals out of control. Isolation and emotional conflict overwhelm her.

Everywhere she looks, she sees the past. Eventually she falls in love in a deep, passionate and slightly desperate way with ghosts from the world her grandfather had inhabited as a young WW2 fighter pilot. Her imagination now seems to have become reality as she becomes entwined in the war years.

But has she really slipped into the past, or is it all symptomatic of a troubled mind? Is she trapped in an alternative world and, if so, does she want to return to the familiar 21st century?
