OUT THIS AUGUST! Part 3 of Justin Sheedy’s Historical Fiction Trilogy – “No Greater Love”
NO GREATER LOVE by Justin Sheedy in bookstores & online this August!
To abandoned child, Colin Stone, World War Two grants an escape from the mean streets of St. Kilda. A natural warrior, his talents qualify him to join an elite group of young men. The shining ones. Who fly Spitfires against Nazi tyranny. Rising with them, from the top Colin Stone looks down on a world that has doomed his first true friends.
Bringing to vivid life true Australian war history and events, No Greater Love will be a saga in the classic mold, featuring the drama, beauty, heroism and horror of one young man’s war journey through stunning Malta, Egypt and North Africa, Sicily, England and Europe. It is a portrait of the once-in-a-lifetime characters the war places on his path, of the tragic, wholesale waste of war, on occasion even the profound humanity of his enemy, and of his evolving perception of his world for what it is.
Though standing on its own as a ripping and also highly emotional read, No Greater Love will be the third and final chapter of Justin Sheedy’s now widely and warmly cherished World War Two novel trilogy begun with Nor the Years Condemn and Ghosts of the Empire. Continuing and now concluding their portrait of shining young men destined never to grow old, No Greater Love is the full and rich story of Part 1’s reader-favourite character, Aussie rough diamond Colin Stone (‘Stoney’). It is the story of his war, of his loyalty and devotion to his friends, of his enduring love for the mother who abandoned him, and his dreams of being held by her once again.
