A heartwarming tale of wartime courage and the untold story of the animals who needed a home....
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 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 Glynis Peters’ The Secret Orphan will love.
What the critics say
"A plucky heroine whose heart embraces any stray animal amidst a cast of believable characters you can't help caring for - this is a moving story of friendship and love set against the backdrop of the Second World War." (Molly Green, author of An Orphan’s War)
"An unputdownable, uplifting read which will tug at your heartstrings." (Rosie Hendry, author of The Mother’s Day Club)
