Description

Born at the end of the First World War, a young girl struggles to find her own identity in her big family and is pushed into a stormy marriage through a terrible misunderstanding from which her pride refuses to let her back down. As her own personal world begins to crumble, the foundation of the world around her is shaken as Germany once again declares war and her brothers and young husband sign up with the first wave of volunteers. Walking Wounded tells the story of those left behind in a Blitz-ravaged London, and of the web of loyalty, guilt and duty that shapes the decisions of the women awaiting the return of their men-folk as the war draws to a close.Spanning the period from the Armistice of the First World War to the exodus of the Ten Pound Poms to Australia in the 1950s, Walking Wounded is a family saga whose internal violence is mirrored by the world stage upon which it is set.

Author Biography

Anna Osborne (nee Franklin) lives in a village in The New Forest with her husband, two children and ever-increasing menagerie of animals, where she practices as a chiropractor in the local GP surgery as well as teaching at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic. Over the past five years she has increasingly explored her long-held desires to write and to sing; and as well as singing with the Chicken Soup Choir, she has written a number of short stories. Walking Wounded is her first novel, inspired by the lives of her grandmother and her Great Auntie Lil and catalysed by walking on the D-Day beaches telling her children about her great-uncles who were part of that Longest Day.
