Summary

1939. Eve Armstrong is being evacuated to Devon. As the train pulls out of London, she takes a last look at the crowded platform, the shabbily dressed evacuees, and a rude little boy sticking his tongue out.

At first, Eve is happier than ever at Drake's Farm. It's a different world that invites fresh starts, and so when Eve runs into the boy from the station, Johnny Durrell, they call a truce and soon become firm friends.

The war might be a distant reality, but the arrival of Connie Hale makes every day a battle. Connie is stuck up and spiteful - and Johnny's new best friend. Will Eve fight for Johnny or concede defeat?

My first Audible experience

Enjoyed the book after a somewhat slow start, and the narrator did a great job, including the voice of Connie! Was not sure where the Christmas theme entered the plot but luckily read the book, with some home comforts being a Devonian. Would recommend and will try some others. Thank you!
