And #Brooklands makes 3!

Haha, make that 3 reviews all at once! This is from the editor of The Brooklands Bulletin, the magazine (paper) based at Brooklands Motor Museum. Paperbacks of Speedwell are now available in their gift shop. I met Diana Willows quite by chance on a research trip to Brooklands for Speedwell about 18 months ago. She asked me why I was there as she drove me around that famous curved banking in a replica vintage racing car. She\’s been supportive of the Speedwell project ever since and I\’m delighted to report what she made of it:

\”Speedwell is a compelling and intriguing story weaved against a backdrop of life in the 1920s. The adventure features the well-born Cassandra Flintlock-Smythe and her keen American racing driver husband, Douglas, who live on their Wiltshire estate. Running parallel are the lives of Katy and husband, Jem. Katy, formerly a maid at the Manor, is ahead of her time and as a qualified motor engineer is never happier than brandishing an oily rag and tuning up cars. She runs her own garage business and comes up with a clever invention that could have a major impact on the world of motor racing and beyond. The pair have risked their future on the garage and on making it a success. The story takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride as it tracks the ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies of all their fortunes. This is a fast-paced read, with many surprises along the way featuring racing at Brooklands and beyond.\”
