Poppy Day is a new novel by Amanda Prowse.
It is described as an original story of love and war, and this is certainly what it is.
It asks an important question, exactly how far would you go to bring home the person who you love the most in the world?
From very early on in their lives, from their early school days, in fact, when they were both a tender six years old, Martin and Poppy find each other. They discover within themselves a capacity for a love that genuinely transcends all other loves.
The love that they feel for each other is unshakable.
Martin is Poppy's best friend, her guardian, her protector against the cruel world. In short, he is her soul mate, her one true love.
But Martin takes the decision to join the army. And he is sent to fight the war in Afghanistan. It is during his first tour of duty there that Poppy receives the news that all service wives fear and dread. The news that her Martin has fallen into enemy hands.
What can Poppy Day do? She can try to get her man back. But at what cost?
The story is a breathtaking, captivating read that takes the reader from the East of London to the other East, the East that contains the searingly hot plains of Afghanistan.
Can their love survive the terrible trials and tribulations that they find themselves facing?
