Publication day for THE SCARLET SISTERS by Helen Batten

The Scarlet Sisters: My nanna’s story of secrets and heartache on the banks of the River Thames by Helen Batten is published by Ebury Publishing today.

THE SCARLET SISTERS by Helen Batten

When Helen Batten’s marriage breaks down, she starts on a journey of discovery into her family’s past and the mysteries surrounding her enigmatic nanna’s early life.

What she unearths is a tale of five feisty red heads struggling to climb out of poverty and find love through two world wars. It’s a story full of surprises and scandal – a death in a workhouse, a son kept in a box, a shameful war record, a clandestine marriage and children taken far too soon. It’s as if there is a family curse…

Helen starts to break the spell of the past, and sees a way she might find love again herself.
