"Kitty’s Story is a captivating romance with well-researched period detail."
– Jean Fullerton
"Fenella Forster takes readers on a breath-taking journey full of stunning period detail from Blitz-torn Britain to the deserts of Egypt, weaving a captivating love story in which passion wars with duty and courage defies betrayal."
– Joanne Walsh
"I lapped up this book. At its heart is Kitty, courageous, a little outrageous but, at just seventeen, quite innocent. It is 1941, and from her home town she’s off to London in the hope she’ll learn to sing, see the world and help the war effort…probably in that order. What follows is not only a roar of a story, but something that warms the heart. At the end, Juliet, who we meet in book 2 of Fenella Forster’s Voyagers trilogy, has finally tied up the pieces of her past. A remarkable feat and a must-read."
– Nina Milton
About the Author
Denise Barnes has unpacked her suitcases in several countries. These life-changing events have found their way into many of her stories, both fiction and non-fiction. In 2008 she self-published 'from Bad to Wurst: Bavarian Adventures of a Veggie Cook', a light-hearted travel memoir. Denise ran her own chain of eight estate agents for 17 years and in 2005 sold (unwittingly!) to two conmen. She wrote her nightmare story 'Seller Beware: How Not To Sell Your Business', as a warning on how easily one can be conned (Biteback Publishing 2013). Denise writes under the pen-name Fenella Forster for her fiction. The Voyagers trilogy is a saga stretching from 1913-2012. Book 1: 'Annie's Story' (2015) and Book 2: 'Juliet's Story' (2016), are both set mainly in Australia in 1913 and 2005 respectively. Book 3: 'Kitty's Story' (2017) is set mainly in Cairo 1941. Each novel is a standalone although they are linked. 'Annie's Story' achieved the American award, BRAG (Book Readers Appreciation Group) Gold Medallion. The trilogy is published by SilverWood Books. She contributed to the USA best-selling 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' series in their anthology 'The Joy of Less' (2016). Denise's story, "The Challenge", was a featured highlight of 'Good Morning America'. Denise is currently writing a new series set in WW2 for HarperCollins under the pen-name Molly Green. The first is 'An Orphan in the Snow' (November 2017).

I thoroughly enjoyed this book with some plot twists that will have you gasping 'I didn't see that coming'! Kitty is very likeable and very well portrayed as she transforms from naïve dreamer to experienced realist.
I thought the cover most distinctive and eye catching as Kitty first sets out on her journey, but to criticise the error in it would be churlish and 'anoraky' in the extreme! I shall keep that as my secret!!
Although part of a trilogy called The Voyagers, this volume is eminently readable as a stand alone and it is not necessary to have read any of the others as they deal with different generations. On the evidence of this story, I would recommend the others purely on the skilful plot and excellent writing.

character, her life is so full of different interesting episodes, I
just wanted to carry on reading about her.
Links to her Italian relatives added further interest to the story.
Writing about the 2nd World war in Italy involving the Italians and
Mussolini gave a real dimension to her story.
I would have given this book 5 stars but personally I was not sure about
the sexual content, nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
Fenella needs to carry on with this story, I did not want the book to end and was rather upset when I got to the end.... I wanted more!
Fantastic read, gripping stuff from beginning to end.
