Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon


The Second World War has been won - by the Germans. Only America still stands protected by a precarious promise of peace from the Reich. Lester and Helen, strangers staying at the Grand Canyon Hotel in Arizona are united by their memories of a lost England. When the fragile peace shatters, only Lester and Helen can take charge and lead their fellow guests into an uncertain future.


  • A startling piece of speculative fiction… A curious read, written with the urgency and pain of wartime, and it fired me with a fresh interest in its author
