good wartime story.
well written story which in the beginning is about amy, a doctor who saw the horrors of the first world war now faced with the prospect of her children serving in the next one. she feels her daughter is safe as she is training to be a doctor but what about her son. what will he do. the story expands to cover her family and the full six years of the war.
Penelope freeman performed the story well bringing the characters to life.
