Lisa Rookes on the inspiration behind The Gallows Tree
Christmas at Liberty’s, the first instalment in an exciting new saga by Fiona Ford, is published today by Arrow, an imprint of Penguin Random House. Christmas at Liberty’s tells the story of Mary, who arrives in war-torn London nursing a broken heart and a painful secret. When she is offered her dream post as an assistant in the fabric department at Liberty’s, she knows this is the fresh start she needs. Amid the store’s vibrant prints and sumptuous interiors, Mary finds a new family who can help her to heal. But not everyone will give Mary such a warm welcome, and the trauma of her past will soon catch up with her. Daisy Styles, author of The Bomb Girls says Christmas at Liberty’s is ‘[a] Liberty treasure chest of silks, satin, lace and ribbons with gritty wartime passion at its very core. A gem!’ Christmas at Liberty’s is available in all good bookshops and online.
