Publisher's Summary

STILL REMEMBER THE YANKS, ALMOST MORE THAN I DO THE WAR' A Suffolk woman.
It was August 1943 - and the inhabitants of King's Thorpe had lived with the idea of invasion for some time - but by the Germans, not the Americans. The village had never seen anything like them before - certainly they were different with their wealth, their glamour, and their louche but romantic uniforms. Some of the older villagers, like the Brigadier, resented them on sight; others welcomed them with weak tea and fish paste sandwiches. But in some lives they were to make a long-lasting and emotional impact - most especially young Sally Barnet from the bakery, Agnes Dawe, the Rector's daughter, and newly-widowed Lady Beauchamp from the Manor.
