The Royal Station Master’s Daughters at War by Ellee Seymour published today


‘A gripping historical saga’ bestselling author Daisy Styles

Happy publication day to Ellee Seymour on The Royal Station Master’s Daughters at War – the second book in her thrilling World War I saga.

It is 1917 and Maria has adapted well to her new life on the royal Sandringham estate where she works as a maid in the Big House for Queen Alexandra and is in awe of the many treasures around her. It is two years since she turned up at the royal station master’s house to escape her secret past, destitute and with nowhere else to turn. Having proven herself to Harry Saward and his daughters, she is now welcomed by them as one of the family. But when Nellie, a mysterious relative turns up, on the run from the law, Maria’s new-found happiness could be under threat.

In a community torn apart by loss and tragedy, how will the station master’s family survive and find the happiness they’re all searching for?

The Royal Station Master’s Daughters at War is inspired by the Saward family, who ran the station at Wolferton in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Through this family we get a glimpse into all walks of life, from royalty to the humblest of soldiers.

Ellee is a journalist and PR professional living near Cambridge. The Royal Station Master’s Daughters was her third book and debut novel. She became a successful ghost writer in 2009 with Being the Soham Psychic, and then wrote The Shop Girls, a heart-warming memoir about an elegant ladies department store in the 1940s-60s, which became a Sunday Times best read for 2014.

Congratulations, Ellee.
