Local author Ellee Seymour visited the Vision Norfolk Hub in King’s Lynn last week to donate an audiobook copy of her most recent book The Royal Station Master’s Daughters at War.
Ellee Seymour was at one time a journalist on the Lynn News & Advertiser and retains a strong affection for Norfolk. She supports charities for the visually impaired and has provided two audiobooks of her novels to Vision Norfolk, recited by actress Katy Sobey. The first first audio book of The Royal Station Master’s Daughters was donated last year and we are delighted to be given the follow-up, The Royal Station Master’s Daughters at War, set two years later, that was published earlier this year. The final book in the trilogy will be published next spring.
Ellee, who lives in Ely, said: “My books are set during World War 1 and feature the real royal station master, Harry Saward, who was based at Wolferton Station for 40 years, and his family. During this time estate workers joined the Sandringham Company and served in Gallipoli where it was reported that many vanished after charging into a forest. I wanted to write about how their families and loved ones coped during this devastating time, the many challenges faced by women, set against true against of the time. I am delighted that audio book versions are available so these stories can be appreciated to as wide an audience as possible.”
