‘Full Circle’ a second novel by Linden Carroll will be released 2019. 

Following ‘Olive’, the author’s first novel, ‘Full Circle’ is also built on a structure of historical fact.

‘Full Circle’ is a story of the indomitable spirit of a youth.  12 years old and orphaned following WW2, he follows a clandestine lifestyle on the London streets while England rebuilds after the war. 

His rescue of another teen from the streets and their liaison cause him to experience the pain and intensity of first love and parenthood subsequently separating them.  Becoming a seafaring adventurer he spends many years travelling across England and Canada finally returning to his homeland to re-claim his lost love and their daughter.

This novel follows the path of an orphaned boy and all consuming, undying love, spanning more than 50 years, ebbing past the physical, flowing into every hidden corner of the mind and flooding the very soul to eternity. 


While a fictional piece of work, this historical novel is based in part on fact and extracts from a friend’s life shared, albeit with some degree of trepidation.

Author’s comment

 Occasionally, a window in life opens allowing the light of ever-enduring love to shine in; a brilliant all-encompassing love.

As with all windows it must eventually close and the conscious and physical love are no more only to evolve into an energy force of unimaginable magnitude merging two soulmates to travel as one throughout eternity.

Many never experience a love such as this but those that do are indeed blessed.
