Publisher's Summary

It is 1940 and Staff Nurse Polly Brown has been granted a posting at Cliffehaven Memorial Hospital on the south coast to be near her badly injured husband, Adam. But her decision has meant that she has had to part with their beloved five-year-old daughter, Alice, who is travelling to safety in Canada.

Polly's heart is torn in two as she says goodbye to Alice and heads to the Beach View boarding house in Cliffehaven, where she throws herself into her work. But as she confronts the fact that Adam may not survive his injuries, a telegram arrives at Beach View: The boat Alice was on has been torpedoed by a German U-boat....

    "A gentle story"

    An easy warm yet thought provoking tale of life during WWII . Some good strong female characters.
    Liked the narrator. Would definitely buy another book by Ellie Dean.

    "Too much expression!""

    The story was great. The performance was OTT. Please cut down on the expression, it is very distracting!

    "Book 2 of the Cliffhaven series."

    Another heart wrenching story of life in Cliffhaven.
    This book is about the nurses who are billeted at the b&b along with a Polish refugee. Life during WW2 is taking it's toll...........
    Heartache, tragedy, love and happiness are becomin a daily part of life.
    Well narrated by Julie Maisey this is a good novel.
    Recommended.
