The third in the Pendragon Island saga series, Unlocking the Past is a nostalgic and enchanting look at 1950s Britain
Poachers and dealmakers, the Griffiths family have always managed to scrape by on the edge of the law – but times are changing in Pendragon Island.
As rationing finally draws to an end, the tight-knit community finds itself coming to terms with a new world in which social boundaries are being eroded and opportunities are growing for all.
Heartache remains a constant though, with Caroline Griffiths is trapped in a sham marriage to Barry Martin – and Rhiannon Lewis still mourning their broken engagement. Meanwhile, the close bond between Frank and Ernie Griffiths is tested first by Frank’s growing involvement in a dangerous criminal enterprise, and then by Ernie’s new ladyfriend…
From much-loved Welsh author Grace Thompson, Unlocking the Past will delight readers of Rosie Clarke, Diney Costeloe, and Merryn Allingham.
