Duty is intricate, historical fiction, set before, during and after WW1, which entwines the lives of two very different families over the tumultuous changes occurring in British society. It will appeal to readers who enjoy family sagas, coupled with true events and strong characterisation. Despite the class divide, Artie and Charles share all their boyhood secrets and a unique bond, which isn't always understood. The story focuses and juxtaposes the lives of the two boys and their families, through their traumatic births, poverty, social conventions, adversity, loyalty, love and ultimately war. This moving story is set against the social and political changes of the early 20th century, the rise of the Labour Party, suffragettes and the consequences of war, which would change their lives forever....

About Author

Joan Rowe was born in Merseyside during the Second World War. A military childhood and a much interrupted education meant a lack of early opportunity to follow a conventional route into a music career, or writing, her two passions. Through sheer persistence and tenacity Joan became a nationally recognised Music Teacher of the Year, a pianist, oboe and recorder player, and an examiner for the Royal Schools of Music. Joan has written extensively about music education, and has taught in schools, colleges, and university. In Search of Home, Joan's personal memoir was published in 2006.
