Lilian Harry
Lilian Harry was born in Gosport, near Portsmouth Harbour, England, UK. She aspired to be a writer from the early age of five, having grown up during the horrifying years of the Blitz in a two-up, two-down terraced house as the youngest of four kids, having two brothers and a sister all several years older than her.

Lilian’s earliest memory is of getting snatched out of her bed by her sister at the first ominous wail of an air raid siren, and being rushed to the Anderson shelter at the bottom of the garden. It’s that memory, along with others of World War II, the roar of exploding bombs, searchlights criss-crossing in the sky, barrage of balloons floating up above, and the German parachute which landed in the garden, which informs her books with such a vivid atmosphere.

When she was a young woman she worked in Civil Service and moved to Devon in order to be near her sailor husband. They had a daughter and a son. Once the marriage ended, she and her two kids moved to the Midlands, where she happily got married again to her second husband.

After living in the Lake District for twelve years, she moved back to Devon at last, and now lives in a village on the edge of Dartmoor.

In the year 2008, she lost her son Philip, and has two grandkids. An animal lover and keen walker, she’s got a dog and three ginger cats to keep her busy, along with a wide assortment of hobbies that she enjoys.

In what little spare time she has, she likes walking on the moors, skiing in the Alps, reading, tending her small garden, country dancing, amateur dramatics, and church bell ringing, something she has practiced since age eleven.

She began signing her romance novels as Nicola West and Donna Baker, also writing as Lilian Harry, a pen name inspired by the first names of her grandparents.

“The Bells of Burracombe” is the first novel in the “Burracombe Village” series and was released in the year 2006. Stella Simmons arrives in the Devonshire village of Burracombe to begin her teaching career, she’s all alone in the world. Orphaned when she was a child and grew up in a children’s home, she was separated from Muriel, her sister, and has never been able to track her down.

She quickly gets caught up in the life of the village, and particularly in the plans for celebrating the Festival of Britain. While vicar Basil Harvey and headmistress Miss Kemp attempt to keep the peace between villagers, who all have got their own ideas for the proposed fair and pageant, Stella tries, with the aid of an artist named Luke Ferris, to locate her sister. However Luke’s got troubles of his own.

This novel starts the story about life in a Devonshire village during the fifties and shows a picture of a Britain coming to terms with the aftermath of World War Two and entering a new decade.

“A Stranger in Burracombe” is the second novel in the “Burracombe” series and was released in the year 2007. The Burracombe villagers are shocked when King George the Sixth dies all of a sudden in the year 1952, just like the rest of the nation is. However in the midst of their grief, a stranger’s arrival in the village on the exact same day goes nearly unnoticed, while the villagers have their own concerns.

Val, a farmer’s daughter, needs to find herself a home before she marries her sweetheart. Hilary struggles to come to grips with her new responsibilities, and Stella’s still getting to know this sister that she believed she had lost during the war. As the kids at the village school are just as inquisitive and lively as they ever were, there’s still feuds and conflicts among the long-standing residents of Burracombe.

Then a search to find a family draws the entire village together, and more than just one person gets led to question their own personal ideas about families and what they actually mean.

“Storm Over Burracombe” is the third novel in the “Burracombe” series and was released in the year 2007. Tragedy threatens Burracombe, with the current trouble there.

Hilary Napier is angry and upset when her dad brings in this new manager for the family’s estate that she has been running for the past year. Even though she can’t help liking Travis Kellaway, Hilary resents his presence just the same. Before long, however, she starts appreciating his compassion and strength, and finds herself being drawn to him.

At the same time, the new drama club livens life in the village. It was formed by the energetic young curate named Felix Copley. Nearly the whole village becomes involved in the pantomime that he decided to organize, with some results that they did not exactly plan on.

Then tragedy strikes, which makes everybody realize what exactly is important in their lives.

“Springtime in Burracombe” is the fourth novel in the “Burracombe” series and was released in the year 2009. The whole village of Burracombe is eagerly anticipating the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, however 1953 is to prove to be a year of heartbreak as well as celebration.

As Stella starts planning her wedding to Felix Copley, her sister Maddy is just starting to come to terms with the loss of her fiance. Hilary’s chances of marriage seem to slip away after they were so tantalizingly close, and Val and Luke Ferris are wondering if they’re ever going to become parents. The Tozer family faces anxiety, too. While grandma Minnie is battling for her life, Joanna and Tom’s premature twins fight their own crisis and Jackie, living and working in Plymouth, is determined to just live a life of her own.

At the same time, the life of village continues on, with all of its ups and downs, its scandals and feuds. Bossy Joyce Warren attempts to organize everybody and everything. Stella and Miss Kemp plan another school event, while Jacob Prout works to keep Burracombe looking its absolute best for the festivities, and, in the midst of all of it, romance comes from a rather unexpected direction.
