The Night Raid

World-renowned artist Dame Laura Knight is in her sixties when the War Office commissions her to paint portraits of the girls in the gun factories.

She’s sent back to her hometown of Nottingham, but whilst she relishes the opportunity for a nostalgia trip, when she starts work on a portrait of two particular women, memories begin to resurface that she has spent half a lifetime trying to forget…

The Night Raid, by former Army wife Clare Harvey, is all about the secrets of the night shift, and what happens when life gives you a second chance. We have three copies to give away.

You can read more about Clare’s journey to becoming an author on page 22 of autumn 2017’s Army&You.

All the fun of the farm

Kids will love getting creative with Make Your Own Farm Animals by Army wife Tracey Radford. Building with home recyclables you’ll never look at a cardboard tube or empty egg carton in the same way again.

The book is divided into four chapters – In the Field, Farmyard Fun, Home Sweet Home and Machinery and Scenery – and covers all aspects of life on a farm.

You can make adorable animals and learn how to create their animal shelters with a step-by-step guide. See more at patchworkparent.blogspot.com

We have three books to give away.
