A GLOBE-TROTTING grandmother from North Yorkshire has reached the top ten in Amazon’s war fiction charts with her latest international adventure novel.

Su Adams, 86, from Harrogate, has written a thriller called The Poisoned Legacy, based on her first husband’s incarceration and transportation from his native Poland to Siberia during World War II.

“It also follows his subsequent wartime flying experience in the Free Polish Airforce as well as his move to South Africa," she said.

Su wrote her first novel after going on a writing course with the Open University.
