Edward’s love story helps soldiers’ cause
11:00am Sunday 8th December 2013 in News
ALL proceeds received from sales of a Herefordshire author’s new book are going to charity.
Edward Donohue says every penny from Whispers at Midnight will go directly to the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
The 82-year-old writer, who lives in Yarkhill, near Ledbury, says the cause is a deserving one.
“They are one of those groups of people who I think we (in this country) have done a great injustice to,” said Mr Donohue, who breeds and races thoroughbred horses. The story follows Tom, a former sailor and international mountaineer who has lost his wife after she developed dementia but forms a new relationship with a younger woman.
The book is not Mr Donohue’s first. Previously he has donated proceeds from sales to BLEMSA (British Limbless Ex-Service Men’s Association) and an antibullying group. Visit Ledbury Books and Maps in High Street, Ledbury.
