‘A real page-turner full of wartime friendships, hope and love’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
On the Home Front, one girl is determined to make a difference.
But Edie’s hopes of serving overseas are dashed when she’s sent to be a Land Girl in a sleepy Cumbrian village.
Prue has shut the world out since her son went away to fight. Yet when she’s asked to take in a Land Girl and two little evacuees from London, she has no choice.
Edie’s heart breaks, seeing the children’s cold welcome. But when the evacuees take in a stray puppy, even Prue can’t say no.
It’s not long before Edie realises Applefield Manor could become a sanctuary to all those without a home in wartime. But can she persuade Prue to open her heart, and her home?
A moving, uplifting wartime story that fans of Dilly Court and Kitty Neale will love.
