'Fields of Blue' is Released
In "Fields of Blue" (published by AuthorHouse), Laura Levy presents a striking depiction of war-torn London during World War I and World War II through the story of one courageous woman and the lives she saves.
"Fields of Blue" follows the lives of Londoners through two world wars. In 1910, Nelly (Nelke) Butcher deserts her abusive relatives and is taken in by the Manningtree family, who eventually dump her in an orphanage.
Years later, Nelly goes to work for a handicapped woman until the woman's sudden death. Nelly is blamed for her murder, but she escapes to the countryside where she marries Albert Manningtree. Their differences separate them, which drives Nelly back to London to help evacuate orphans.
She returns in the midst of "The Blitz" on London, when German bombers are destroying London and its surrounding cities. Nelly must summon her courage and keep her wits about her in order to survive and save others.
Levy hopes "Fields of Blue" will bring an era of war, death and bravery to a new generation of readers.
