One of the judges called it:
An excellent anthology of World War 1 stories all told with a remarkable eye for authenticity and a great deal of love and compassion.
This means that seven out of the eight books we entered have now been distinguished in this way, a success rate which has quite frankly blown the very few brain cells we had left!

Our congratulations and thanks go to everyone involved in making A PRIDE OF POPPIES the success it has been - to the authors and the editing team in the first instance, and also of course to the readers. We can all quite justifiably share in the enjoyment of this:
