Following a catastrophic patrol during the British Army’s bloodiest year in Afghanistan, Jess, an army medic, finds herself embroiled in the issues faced by two of her colleagues. Despite her attempts to fight her feelings, she finds herself drawn closer and closer to her Section Commander, Rix, with almost fatal consequences. Can their love survive the almost insurmountable obstacles that they face, and is it stronger than Army regulations and PTSD?
Rosie became interested in mental health issues in servicemen and women after watching a poignant documentary and felt compelled to research and write her debut novel, Battle Cry. Battle Cry tells the story of how love can grow from the most unexpected of places, and how the longest lasting, most life changing battle scars are not always those we can see.
Becoming a published author has been a lifelong dream for Rosie, and she is delighted to have achieved it. She is keen to encourage other young people to follow their writing dreams and will be sharing her writing journey on social media.
What a superb first novel from this new author – absolutely loved it! As a military wife, I was astounded by the attention to detail and such realistic descriptions of military life.
