A young girl stands alone in the cobbled market place of a small Lincolnshire town, bedraggled, soaked through and very afraid. Who is she? Where has she come from and from whom is she running away? No one knows or cares. Only kindly farmer, Eddie Appleyard, recognises something in the girl that touches his heart. In a drunken haze and scarcely realising what he is doing, Eddie takes her home even though his wife is a tyrant, who will believe the worst.

Great story and read so very well. It's a very addictive storyline makes you need more. Very heartfelt and emotional in a good way. The author has pained a wonderful picture for your imagination to run away with itself.
Personally I couldn't get enough of it!!
Enjoy!!
