More About the Author

Julie's website is - www.julie-maria-peace.co.uk

Julie Maria Peace was born in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England, and has lived in the area for most of her life. The eldest of four siblings, she was raised in a very artistic household and remembers growing up surrounded by books, colourful half-painted canvases and glorious classical music. Her love for writing began at a very early age, always vigorously encouraged by her grandmother who herself wrote prolifically. Leaving home at the age of eighteen to do a French degree, Julie spent three years at Hull University and a year in Nancy, France. After graduating, she returned to South Yorkshire where she met and married her husband, Alan. Between them, the couple have one son, four daughters and three granddaughters (two of them American and the other living in Spain!)

With strong Irish connections on her mother's side, Julie grew up in a devout Roman Catholic home. During her student years, she underwent a deep philosophical and spiritual struggle which led to the breakdown of her childhood faith and brought her to the point of existential agnosticism. Then, just before her twenty-first birthday, she had a radical, life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ which changed her forever.

She still loves good books, beautiful paintings and classical music. If she had to pick a favourite author it would probably be C. S. Lewis (she's read his 'Surprised by Joy' more times than she can remember). Favourite composer would probably be Ralph Vaughan Williams (the third movement of his Fifth Symphony never fails to make her cry). As for her favourite painting, well, that would have to be anything by her dad.

Format: Paperback
A Song in the Night (Grosvenor House Publishing) is one of the most inspiring novels I've ever read.
I don't think I have ever finished a book (all 500 pages of it) with such a sense of fulfilment, well-being and happiness. I had shed many tears, and laughed too, as the author took me on a roller-coaster of emotions with her gripping, spell-binding exploration of the meaning of life.
With beautifully-drawn characters woven into a fabulous piece of writing, Julie Maria Peace displays an amazing depth of perception, understanding and experience as she traces the heart-rending accounts of life (and death) in the trenches of World War I alongside the equally powerful story of Rosie Maconochie, set in our time nearly 100 years on.
I guess it's not for the squeamish, but for those like so many of us who are frequently troubled and tormented by suffering and disappointment, and whether there is a God in heaven who cares. You'll find it hard to put down!
I congratulate Julie on having the courage to tackle such a massive subject encompassing tragedy, heartache and abuse as well as love and romance, and ultimate triumph. And she does it with tremendous sensitivity, not to mention delightful humour. I reckon she is Britain's answer to Francine Rivers, a similarly brilliant writer from America.

I downloaded this book onto my kindle after listening to the author on a local radio station, I was not disappointed. It as a gentle book and very cleverly intertwines the First World War with what is happening to a family today. It teases out the past lives of the central characters and reveals the trauma they have experienced, as well as showing that sometimes we can get relationships wrong - good and bad. If you are looking for a racy read , then this is not the book for you - on the other hand if you are looking for a good read with good old fashioned values then this it.

A totally engaging read from start to finish with more than enough for both genders to enjoy. Life and its many mysteries and challenges are dealt with with much thought and sensitivity. This is a book I simply couldn't put down and comes with my highest recommendation as one of my best ever reads!

I have really enjoyed reading this book. It's one of those books you can't put down because the storylines keeps you hungry for the next page. There are two periods in our history running alongs side one another in the book. One set in 1917 with the inhumanity of the First World War. The second, modern day 2005. Such a time divide makes the reader wonder how they can relate to each other, but the author entwines the two so skilfully and intelligently that it really works to bring us a fasinating insight into the lives and loves of 2 people who lived approximatley 88 years apart.

This book was fantastic! Finished it in 3 days - I just couldn't put it down! The way the story moves between the different time periods is seamless and the imagery very powerful. This book covers some dark and difficult topics in a fresh and beautiful way to create a genuinely moving and emotional story. Just bought 2 more as gifts for friends!

I was privileged to read Julie' s manuscript of 'A Song in the Night' prior to publication and found this to be one of the best books I had ever read. It is such a captivating story and so 'unputdownable' - she never lets up on the unique theme - you have to keep reading! Well done Julie Here's to the next book!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and couldn't wait to get back to it when I had to leave off. Tears were rolling down my face at the moving moments throughout the book. It is so cleverly written, that it draws and intrigues the reader in anticipation of what will happen next!
