Orla is sixteen, and a newcomer at her sixth form college in the small town of Loganbourne, England. She is cripplingly shy, and struggles to form close friendships. When she meets Will, they fall in love in the way that only two young people can: beautifully; wholly; unreservedly.
But the country is plunged into war, and tragedy strikes Orla’s family. Will, who has endured tragedy of his own, is there to help her pick up the pieces. But life is cruel to the best of people. When Will is abruptly taken from Orla, how will she go on?
War Wounds is a young adult novel in progress.
