Wednesday Spotlight | DAUGHTER OF THE WINDS by Jo Bunt

About the book:

When the Turkish invade Cyprus in 1974 Pru, a young British Army wife has her life turned upside down. Two weeks later she flees the country with a baby who isn't hers. 

Over thirty years later that baby, now a grown woman called Leni, returns to the island of her birth to find out about the chain of events that led her to be brought up as Pru's child. She discovers the true cost of war, how the hurt still continues through the generations, and what being a family really means.

In this story of love and loss, Leni will lay ghosts to rest in more ways than one.

About the author:

Jo Bunt was born in Cyprus to British parents. It made sense to her that her first novel should be based there.

Following the family's return to England, Jo went to school in Nottingham, the university in Hull, and then worked in London as a Recruitment Consultant for PwC for many years. Following a family illness, Jo moved to Derbyshire where she now lives with her husband and her twin sons. This has enabled her to focus on her two great loves in life; her family and her writing.

She remembers writing her first 'novel' when she was seven but spent her angst-ridden teenage years writing miserable and dark poetry. She mostly writes mainstream fiction but is also working on a series of children's adventure books, largely guided by her own children. When she is not writing or looking after the children Jo is an avid reader and self-confessed food snob. If she can combine the two she is a very happy lady indeed.

Daughter of the Winds, a novel by Jo Bunt will be available on a discounted price of $0.99 in the US, and £0.99 in the UK, from February 14 to February 20, via Amazon.
