A psychological thriller from David Longridge, his second novel, set against the backdrop of WW2. In Silence in the Desert, four young people are caught up on opposing sides, yet bound to one another by pre-war friendship and new found love. As the story progresses, Henri, Leo, Bill, and Elisabeth, are forced into conflicting allegiances incompatible with the ethics of their upbringing. “I find the interaction of wartime events and young people’s lives a fascinating subject”, says David. “I am always on the look-out for when these are overlooked or portrayed incorrectly in popular history.” The price for the paperback is £8.99. You can purchase online at or from your local bookshop.

Gordon is a very handsome 13.2hh, 14 year old bay gelding. A super kind little chap with an easy going temperament. Gordon LOVES hunting and will look after a keen mini future huntsman/huntress like no other! Gordon is well hunted with the Beaufort and North Cotswold, and has been seen out hunting this season. Out hunting he jumps very well, he's not too speedy and not too slow. He will stand when he needs to, do gates and is great with hounds. Gordon has good flatwork with a super canter and does a lovely dressage test. Gordon has attended pony club camps and rallies, but is not a competition pony. Gordon has done lead rein and is good on the lead rein, but is not a lead rein hunting pony. Gordon ideally is looking for a hunting home as it's his no1 activity. He's great to hack on the road and in big open spaces. He's a chunky pony so would also take a small adult. Loves attention and fuss, and well mannered to handle. Sad sale, but Priced to sell as competition pony already in situ, and he is wasted at home. References from previous owners and loan home. Contact Maddy or Edward White
