Review by: Diane Scott Lewis on Oct. 17, 2017 :
During WWI, in the bush of rural Ontario, Canada, teenaged Annie Baldwin works hard on her parents' farm. She's the youngest daughter of a doctor, who also preaches fire and brimstone and expects all his girls to marry respected young men. Her mother is rather cold, and very careful of her place in society.
Two young Irish orphans, bond servants to local farms, help out on the Baldwin farm. George and Peter are nice boys, and soon Annie and George are attracted to one another. Annie defies her parents' wishes and promises George she'll wait for him after he enlists in the army and is sent overseas.
Bell's descriptions of farm life put you right in the fields and barns. The horrors of war are revealed in George's letters to Annie. Annie is a resilient character who follows her heart, even with an unexpected twist at the novel's end.
