Octavia's War

Don’t miss the second title in the Octavia family saga, an emotional and heartfelt tale set against the backdrop of the Blitz. Agora Books is thrilled to announce that Octavia’s War by Beryl Kingston is out now!

Octavia’s War is available to buy HERE.


Octavia Smith has always been a fearless and independent woman. A Suffragette, a teacher, and a leader, she is now the headmistress of the Roehampton Secondary School helping shape the minds of the future. But as the stirrings of another war begin to rumble throughout Europe, Octavia is left wondering what kind of future there will be.

With rumours of evacuations on the home front and atrocities on the mainland, Octavia cannot stand idly by. Torn between her passion for teaching and her sense of justice, Octavia must decide between maintaining a sense of normalcy or risking everything to rescue those in danger.

From blackouts to bombs, Octavia’s War is filled with the harrowing details of the Second World War and one woman’s fearless mission to make a difference.
