Summary

Here is the compelling sequel to the top-selling Lincolnshire saga Tangled Threads.

It is 1914, and Eveleen Hardcastle, now in in her early 30s, has married Richard. As the First World War breaks out, Eveleen, a sophisticated young woman, is left to manage the factory while Richard goes off to fight for his country. Eveleen's mother Mary has found happiness at last in her marriage to Josh. Her young granddaughter, Bridie, still lives at home and is beautiful, but has a spirited, strong will that her grandmother finds hard to control. Bridie is secretly besotted with her godfather, Andrew, whom she is convinced she will marry when she is older.

While the war plays out, Bridie becomes a nurse, looking after wounded soldiers billeted in the local Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire stately homes. There, she finds a vocation that is both rewarding and gives her a maturity beyond her years.
