The 1949 Affair (The Secret of Aldwych Strand 2)

By Sarah E Smith

Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


Nothing ever goes according to plan – especially where Time Travel is concerned. Instead of Southend, Lucy and Mark find themselves in Nazi Britain in 1949, on a different pier, in a world that shouldn’t exist. But getting back to the present isn’t simple; the distortion at Aldwych Strand Station has shut itself down, ostensibly to protect itself from the Nazis occupiers. Fortunately, there are rumours of a second entrance, but to find it Lucy and Mark must read Marconi’s diary which is housed in the Volk’s Palast – the former Alexandra Palace - home to the SS. Split up (for their safety) Mark heads to Muswell Hill and the diary, while Lucy is deposited at the Leytonstone Displacement Camp. Her job is to talk to one of Marconi’s team - a man who mapped the distortion as a lad. However, he is clinically insane. To find the answers to his riddles, Lucy must work with the camp’s commandant the enigmatic psychiatrist - and rising star in the Nazi Party – Admiral Valentin Von Schmidt. As October turns to November, as Mark and the Prisoner of the Volks Palast witness Nazi brutality at first hand, Lucy find herself at the heart of the regime. But Mark (although he doesn’t know it) is safer. There are two people at the November 8th celebrations who want Lucy’s time travelling ability – and they will tear her apart to achieve their ends…

Born in Plymouth, Sarah has always telling stories because she has always been reading. If her parents lost her, they could find her amongst a pile of books. Quite early on she realised there were three ways to travel stow away in the TARDIS, study history and write a book. The publication of the Secret of Aldwych Strand(1) completes this trilogy. You see not only did she study history at University; she has been inside the TARDIS and she has travelled with the Doctor - but they were in a car and she was driving. The Secret of Aldwych Strand triology is not autobiographical but like all good stories there is an element of truth in all things. If dreams could come true Sarah would like to be a "Lady who Lunches". However, her cat @blofelds_cats wants to take over the world. So: please, help him out by buying into Mark and Lucy's adventures. If you enjoy the books; tell her. If you don't - please be constructive
