Welcome

Gillian Poucher is the author of intriguing debut novel After the Funeral, now available to buy. So what's it about? "Julia Butler finds her life unravelling when a stranger at her mother's funeral hints at a disturbing family secret. Along with her partner's infidelity and the prospect of a childless future, she's near breaking point. But the discovery of her mother's diary reveals how a war-time love affair had a devastating impact on three generations of women. The diary gives Julia the strength she needs to make peace with those around her, and with the ghosts from her past."

The novel is partly inspired by the city of Lincoln and neighbouring villages and Lincolnshire’s aviation history. Most of the novel is set in Lincolnshire and Norfolk.
