COVER REVEAL: The Good Messenger - John Simmons

I'm really excited to share the cover of John Simmons' new book with you today.  I am a huge fan of John Simmons' writing and I'm delighted to be able to offer two very lucky winners the chance to read both of John's previous novels: Leaves and Spanish Crossings.  

But first, lets find out what the new book is about:

The book is to be published  20th September 2018 by Urbane Publications with isbn 9781911583882.

The Good Messenger by John Simmons is a coming of age novel that becomes a love story and is told in three parts.

Nine-year-old Tommy is the innocent messenger between deceiving adults in an Edwardian country house; his good intentions may have bad consequences for the family that shelters him.

But the Great War is a larger, looming tragedy, changing everything, as seen through the eyes of Iris on Armistice Day.

In the Jazz Age aftermath a further mystery resurfaces, uncovering family secrets that might threaten a growing love.

So are you ready to see the AMAZING cover?

Wow!  That is one striking cover!  I can't wait to read it.
