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.
Edie realises Applefield Manor could become a sanctuary. But can she persuade Prue to open her heart, and her home?
A moving, uplifting wartime story that fans of Dilly Court will love.
