Wartime story wins praise

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - BOOKS -

AN award-win­ning novel by a North York­shire author has been praised by Ox­ford Univer­sity.

Mak­ing Shore, which won the 2011 Peo­ple’s Book Prize for fic­tion, was de­scribed as a vividly il­lu­mi­nated tale of sur­vival. In­spired by a true in­ci­dent, it tells of hard­ships af­ter a ship is tor­pe­doed by a U-boat.

The book, by Sara Aller­ton, has also been short­listed for the Mount­bat­ten Award for best lit­er­ary con­tri­bu­tion at the Mar­itime Me­dia awards.
