Imogen, who organised the holiday, is frighteningly capable and a bit of a control freak. With three children who are at the centre of her world, she's determined that this holiday will be perfect. But is Imogen's tidy life quite as happy as it seems?

Sophie is Imogen's oldest friend, dating back to the days when they would chat long after lights out at their Home Counties boarding school. Sophie knows she should be feeding her offspring organic cous-cous, but they love McDonald's apple pies too much - and where's the harm in that? But is there more to Sophie than dogged loyalty to her rather overbearing old mate?

And then there's Jo, an acquaintance of Sophie's roped in at the last minute when the first choice of house mate pulled out.

A group holiday seemed such a good idea back in January ...

In 1933 at a summer holiday camp in Dymchurch, Kent organized for children in Church-run orphanages, destiny deemed a ten-year-old boy and a eight-year-old girl would meet under the most bizarre circumstances. What the camp leader was to divulge to the children, would change their lives forever. Pointing one finger at the girl, then at the boy, she said simply, 'You two are brother and sister.'

This bizarre isolated meeting of author Caroline Whitehead and her brother William Marshall in their childhood years would develop, in time to come, into a tight-knit relationship that spanned decades. UNDER THE OLD RAILWAY CLOCK deftly illuminates for readers a time and place - England from the 1930s through to 2007. William was a sailor, hero, husband, father, gambler, coin collector, cook, flirt with the ladies - and a very dear brother.

About the author
Caroline Whitehead was born in London, England, and raised in an orphanage in Kent. Knowing the importance of family relationships, she pushed forward for forty years to discover her brothers' and sisters' identities, overcoming many obstacles so the siblings could experience those ties - and their stories could finally be told in a sequence of three books.

Married in 1944, she emigrated to Canada in 1967 and lived in Ontario before moving to British Columbia in 1987. Her husband died in 1999. She has one daughter, three grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and a wealth of proud memories.
