This is the first of Helen Carey's books that I read - and it will certainly not be the last. The story is absolutely rivetting, the characters are strongly drawn, believable and you really care about them and their futures. The Second World War was obviously awful for soldiers and their families but this novel vividly reconstructs the privations and challenges to citizens as the war began to dominate their lives. Great read!
