FOLKESTONE, U.K. - April 10, 2017 - PRLog -- Until the recent hit film Another Mother's Son, few people were aware of the role the Channel Islands played during the Second World War. Message from Captivity, which was brought out by Kentish publisher Ozaru Books shortly before the film, incorporates the same historical background - the islanders' shock evacuation and internment, as well as later developments - into a ripping yarn on a much wider scale.

As action moves from the beautiful islands to the very heart of Nazi-occupied Europe, this epic, meticulously researched tale realistically captures the atmosphere of life under enemy control, together with the struggle of participants on all sides to 'do the right thing', even in the impossible circumstances of war. It weaves factual authenticity into the fabric of a narrative where the twists and turns of captivity, freedom and dangerous pursuit have unforeseen consequences, where integrity is tested to the limit, and great inner strength is needed to cope with the decisions and challenges faced. Espionage, malice and romance combine in a story that will lift the spirits and wrench the heart.

The book's writer, Sally Aviss, has a keen interest in the period, and particularly what happened in coastal areas around the UK during the war. Following her appearance at Spitfire Day in Ramsgate last year, this May Day she will be appearing at the Nostalgia Day bank holiday celebrations at The Grand Hotel in Folkestone. The following month, on 17 June, Sally will be signing all of her books at Waterstones Ashford, and she is also scheduled to appear at other venues across Kent throughout the year.

About the author:
