Summary

When her beloved father is killed in the Blitz, trainee nurse April Harvey is all alone in the world. Desperate to find the family she craves, she heads to Truro, her mother's hometown.

But danger and heartbreak lurk even in Cornwall, and when the American GIs arrive, April finds her life turned upside down as she discovers that some people are not to be trusted. Especially when it comes to her budding romance with Major Crawford Dunbar.

As vicious rumours emerge, April fears there will never be a future for them. But if war has taught her anything, it is that you must grasp happiness where you can, and April is not prepared to give up without a fight....

The most beautiful Story I've ever listened too.

This is the most beautiful Story I've ever listened too. It broken my heart at times.. I'd Cryed with sorrow and happiness. The performance was 100% clear and made me imagine each characters clearly. Well done to the author of this book. I recommend everyone to read and listen too!

Great story of another aspect of life during Second World War.

Lucy delivered an outstanding performance throughout this book and captured the period with its dramas brilliantly. It was so captivating and absorbing that just listened to it every bit of time I could.
