Ellis Jones is single, pregnant and in turmoil. Determined not to burden her young lover, Joe, with fatherhood, she leaves her city flat and moves into the Suffolk cotage she has inherited from her Great-Aunt Nell. it is the discovery of Nell's journal, and the love story described in its pages, that finally help Ellis to reach a key decision in her life. Past and present are deftly intertwined in this wonderful romance.
I particularly liked how the story of the two sisters, Nell and Violet, tells a wartime-story from the perspective a people living through it. No history lesson, but beautifully told.
