By Rosalind Minett

Historical fiction, Literary fiction, General fiction, Children's | Paperback, eBook


1937. With the threat of war in Europe, Billy’s war begins when he meets his cousin, Kenneth. Older, but smaller than Billy, indulged Kenneth is a devious psychological bully. He shows the emotions that brought Hitler to power — envy over strength, desire for new territory. His invasion begins. For support, Billy imagines he owns the precious Cossack sabre he’s secretly seen. This icon sustains Billy through bullying, evacuation, hardships and eventually, the dreadful reality of war. But could the sabre become a threat to his future?



Rosalind Minett (writing name) studied at Birmingham, Sussex and Exeter universities and enjoyed a career as a chartered psychologist. Since retiring she has been able to concentrate on creative writing. Not surprisingly, for a psychologist, it is the inner life of her characters that drives her plots whether the genre is humour, historical or crime. She enjoys writing in different genres, and is likely to continue to do so. She relishes quirkiness, and loves creating complex characters of all ages. She lives in the South West of England and spends her time writing, sculpting and painting.

Intrusion: a Relative Invasion, draws the reader into its pages and its story so completely that it is hard to put it down. I loved every minute of my time with Billy and his family, disliking the nasty Kenneth and supporting young Billy in his escapades and difficulties until I felt I lived in the pages! This is a book well worth reading for its simplicity, truthfulness and expert storytelling.
