During World War Two, a young girl was seen around the Stoke Bishop area of Bristol riding her bike or a pony; climbing trees; building dens, playing with the ‘gang’ in Blaise Castle Woods, and a lot more besides! This seemingly carefree life had its darker side as the storm clouds of war thickened and broke overhead.

Riding Through the Storm recalls the author’s life before, during and after the war. It is tinged with humour and remarkable occurrences and mirrors that time with insights into how people lived during those dark days. Nearly eighty years after the storm subsided, the full significance of what the author had lived alongside came to light and propelled this drama almost into the realms of make-believe!

Heather Mary Pelmear lived in Bristol until she married and moved to The Midlands aged twenty-two where she raised a family of three and taught children with special needs. During the 1970s, she took up the post of Head of Infants at a school in Plymouth for children with learning difficulties. She has lived for the past thirty-three years in Cornwall. Her early attempts at writing stories began when she was about eight years old, but they never progressed much further than “Once upon a time”.
