Summary

Oxfordshire, 1947. Exhausted by the war and nursing a tragic secret, Kit Smallwood flees to Wickam Farm to recuperate. There she throws herself into helping set up a charity sending midwives to India.

Then Kit meets Anto, a handsome, complicated but charming trainee doctor nearing the end of his English education, and she falls utterly in love. But when Anto informs his family that he is to return home with an English bride, his parents are appalled. As they journey to a new life in India, Kit begins to realise the seriousness of what she has undertaken.

I couldn’t listen to this. The narrator is so bad - just like she’s reading the news. So uncharming.
