The Royal Station Master’s Daughters

Hello and welcome to my website where you can learn all about The Royal Station Master’s Daughters, the first book in a trilogy set during WW1 at Wolferton Royal Station and Sandringham, the much loved home to the royal family since 1862.

If you enjoy royal stories, historical fiction and heart warming sagas I hope my books will give you much pleasure. It’s been a complete joy for me to research and write them, delving into a bygone world and bringing to life true historical events and royal stories based around the lives of my characters.

Do follow my blog too where I will posting regular stories about royal life. With the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, it’s the perfect time to learn more about the royal family from past and present.

The Royal Station Master’s Daughters

Jessie, Beatrice and Ada were in real life the daughters of Harry Saward, Station Master at Wolferton, close to Sandringham House in Norfolk, the much loved country retreat of the royal family since 1862.

Harry Saward, Royal Station Master Extraordinaire

For forty years Harry ran Wolferton Station where European royal families and leading political figures of the day stopped off on their way to Sandringham. He earned the respect of all he met, always maintaining the highest professional standards with a sense of humour.

The Sandringham Company

The Sandringham Company was originally raised by Sandringham Estate Agent Frank Beck at the request of HM King Edward VII as a Volunteer Company of The Norfolk Regiment in 1906.

Anyone who enjoys historical romantic fiction will love this book and the affection with which it is written. For anyone who knows Sandringham it really does evoke something of the place and life on the estate in the past.

Neil R. Storey, WW1 and Norfolk Historian

I immediately fell in love with this book. It’s a perfect WWI saga with plenty of family drama, nostalgia and emotion and the royal cameos are such a bonus for this readership. Ellee writes with such clear knowledge and intention on such an interesting family with a unique position in society at this time and I can’t wait to read more in the series.
