About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Sadie was born in a shabby room in the south-end of Liverpool, on a cold November night, in 1914. Her mother, a young Irish girl named Mary Kelly, lived in an impoverished dockland area of the city, anxiously awaiting the return of her English soldier. It was a time when Great Britain and Germany were in the throes of a bloodied conflict on the fields of France. Both countries were sending thousands of patriotic young men into the savageness of battle and certain death. These courageous soldiers marched off to war with a song in their hearts and visions of early victory. Yet, there would be no quick end to the confrontation across the English Channel. The war in Europe would last for four long years.

For the women left behind it was a time of worry and heartache, and most often, their lives were fraught with destitution and despair. Yet, all were hopeful that their men folk would return unharmed. Mary was one of these women but she would wait in vain. Little Sadie would never know the brave young man who had fathered her.

Sadie struggles to overcome fear and heartache in her younger years when sickness claims the life of her beloved mother. Bewildered and afraid, she is taken across the Irish Sea to the sanctuary of her grandmother, but with the passing of time, again faces heartache and sorrow. Due to her youth, inexperience and grief compel her to make a dreadful mistake, a tragic error that will come back to haunt her. A mistake that will cost her dearly, with devastating results.

She endures hardships that render her helpless and despairing, when left destitute and alone. She finds an inner strength to survive through friendships that help her cope with the grim realities of life's trials and challenges. These friendships withstand the test of time, in an era when poverty and strife rips at the very heart of the poorer classes of England's population.

Her courage is tested yet again when least expected. Her terror begins during the atrocities and evils of another armed conflict. Another war, that will plunge the entire world into complete and utter turmoil. A monstrous war, pitting men against men in bitter and inhumane acts of suffering and cruelty, a war that would last for six brutal years.

Deftly constructed at 520 pages, The Sorrows of Sadie is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction/ Historical category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Sorrows of Sadie meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $19.95.

Additionally, The Sorrows of Sadie can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks

About the Author

The Sorrows of Sadie is the first in a series of recent pursuits, with work progressing quickly on the follow-up.

Anne Storm, Author of The Sorrows of Sadie, was born in Liverpool, England in 1948. She has lived in the U.S. for many years but never forgot her roots. It has always been her desire to write this historical novel for her parents, and her two sons. Her oldest boy died a tragic death in 2003. Her youngest lives in the same South Dakota town as Anne.

Throughout the years of living in the U.S. Anne discovered that many people did not realize that Liverpool was heavily bombed during world war two, and of the horrendous suffering that took place. So it was an even greater desire to publish in the U.S.A.

Her love of Liverpool and its people have been a great inspiration to Anne, and she looks forward to hearing from readers throughout the world regarding her historical novel. She gives many thanks to Outskirts Press for helping to realize her dream.
