Joy Chambers’ None ut the Brave sweeps three courageous people into the battlefield as it travels from France to Great Britain to the Australian bush and back again in a gripping insight into a fascinating period of our past. The perfect read for fans of Sebastian Faulks’ Birdsong and Charlotte Gray.
John Baron Chard, orphaned as a baby and brought up in Australia, is unaware that the family he loves is not his own. When his life is thrown into turmoil, he leaves for England to join the RAF as war looms over Europe.
Samantha Chard, young and headstrong, is a pioneer woman photographer. When she cannot have the man she loves, she marries Cashman Slade – a union with disastrous consequences. Cashman Slade, charismatic and arrogant, discovers an easy way to live in style when his father squanders the family’s wealth. But nothing is free, and as Cash flees from his past he is forced to make his stand in the world’s greatest conflict. What people are saying about None but the Brave:
