First Love, Last Love




One of Judith Saxton's well-loved WWII sags reissued as 'Katie Flynn writing as Judith Saxton'

A powerful story of two sisters, and the love that changed their lives

It wasn't a privileged childhood, but it was a happy one. Sybil and Lizzie Cream, brought up in a fisherman's cottage on the edge of the cold North Sea were content to leave privilege where it belonged: with their friends the Wintertons. Christina Winterton was the same age as Sybil and the two girls were inseparable, but it was Lizzie whom Ralph Winterton, three years older, found irresistible.

Then war came to East Anglia, and so did Manchester-born Fenn Kitzmann now of the American Army Air Force. At their first meeting he is attracted by Sybil's subtle charm, but before he sees her again her own personal tragedy has struck, and he finds her changed almost out of recognition...

About the Author

Katie Flynn

Katie Flynn lived for many years in the north-west. A compulsive writer, she started with short stories and articles and many of her early stories were broadcast on Radio Merseyside. She decided to write her Liverpool series after hearing the reminiscences of family members about life in the city in the early years of the twentieth century. She also wrote as Judith Saxton. For the last few years of her life, she had to cope with ME but continued to write with the help of her daughter, Holly Flynn. Sadly, Katie passed away on 1 January 2019, but had already begun working with Holly on upcoming books, which will be published in 2019 and beyond.
