'Into the Sun' by Joy Kenward was launched with a private party at The Old Colonial pub in Weston Super Mare. Yolk was there, it was a packed event and a lot of Joy's books were sold. As the book is about a WW2 love story between a young girl and an RAF pilot it was good to see a couple of veterans there, and some relatives of RAF pilots, including Joy herself.
