Words Best Sung


Price: £7.99


For as long as he could remember, Nottinghamshire lad Alastair Braymoor had dreamed about two things: steam engines, and Charlotte, the tomboy from the top of the street. But when he starts work on the railway, steam is just a few years from extinction and Charlotte has run away to the bright lights, leaving Alastair hopelessly in lust with gorgeous but uptight Mary. After a seaside brawl leads to his pal playing drums for one of the hottest R&B groups in the country, at a concert with The Beatles, The Kinks and The Rolling Stones, a boys' adventure to the capital proves a revelation in more ways than any of them could ever have imagined.







‘'Hilarious, touching, romantic…a really cracking read.'’

Sally Lindsay (Still Open All Hours / Mount Pleasant)


'Captures perfectly a moment in time. A young lad, searching for his place in the world, discovers that love and happiness can sometimes be found where you least expect it. A lovely, heartfelt story.'

Dave Johns, star of the Ken Loach Palme d'Or winning film 'I Daniel Blake'


'So evocative and lovingly written. The first book to turn me into a fan of steam trains. (Sorry, Thomas the Tank Engine).'

Nat Luurtsema, author of 'Girl Out of Water'
