Summary

A family pulled apart. A love silenced....
For as long as Briony Valentine can remember she has been soft on Eddie, the boy next door. But their chance of romance is stifled when the Luftwaffe begin dropping bombs on the midlands. Eddie is called up to serve, as is Briony's father, tearing her world apart. As the telegrams arrive, all she can do is pray.
Despite past disagreements, Briony's affluent grandparents open their doors to the three Valentine children, offering them the safety of Cornwall - far from the bombs and far from the only world they've ever known.Will the Valentine family ever unite, and will Briony ever see Eddie again?
A moving, compelling and wonderfully authentic portrait of family life amongst the perils of WWII, from a much-loved author.
