Summary

It wasn't a privileged childhood, but it was a happy one. Sybil and Lizzie Cream, brought up in a fisherman's cottage on the edge of the cold North Sea, were content to leave privilege where it belonged: with their friends the Wintertons. 

Christina Winterton was the same age as Sybil, and the two girls were inseparable, but it was Lizzie whom Ralph Winterton, three years older, found irresistible. Then war came to East Anglia, and so did Manchester-born Fenn Kitzmann, now of the American Army Air Force.

At their first meeting he is attracted by Sybil's subtle charm, but before he sees her again her own personal tragedy has struck, and he finds her changed almost out of recognition....

Katie Flynn

Excellent as usual of her books . But a bit hard to see where everyone is going to fit in. Anne Dover is so so fantastic at reading. I wish she would read everyone’s stories. Thank you

Brilliant

This was a lovely book. I think that anyone who can remember the war years, and those who never experienced what it was like to live in the 1940’s, will enjoy listening to this story. I was so pleased that the ending was a happy one!

We're here because we're here

Really enjoyed this story, as an audible book it was hard to switch it off, just wanted to hear the next chapters.
