Synopsis of book»

Norfolk 1939. The start of World War II brings about dramatic changes for the de Lacey family. Their eldest daughter Elizabeth is expected home any day from France when an accident detains her with the war rumbling ever closer.  Her sister Amy has returned from finishing school full of possibilities for her future. Jack, the eldest son, is distracted by his blossoming romance with Lucy Storey, the daughter of the village stationmaster. And the youngest de Lacey, Edmund, is seeking adventure with the new evacuees.  The war is bringing changes for all at Nayton Halt, changes they must embrace.

What Critics Have Said»

'This is a tale that will engage the kind of people who revere Downton Abbey - the struggle of the upper classes to engage in the business of the war, to fit in with the various regimes and hierarchies that were necessary for the survival of Britain and her allies during a time when class was prevalent but its edges were becoming blurred. Mary Nichols captures the mood and the essence of the time with brilliant characterisation and plot.'Books Monthly

'Nichols weaves an engaging tale of romance, adventure and mystery. There is a host of colourful characters [and her] sure touch brings the past to life, creating a wonderful picture of wartime England and while not shying away from the horrors of war, her narrative is never grim. She provides enough information to keep the reader informed of the bigger picture of the war but never swamps the story with too much detail.'Historical Novels Review
