Publisher's Summary

Summer, 1938, and for the second time Britain is threatened by war with Germany. This time civilians too will be in the front line. In London, two very different families are brought together by the war. Doctors, Amy and Dan, have twins, 18-year-old Tessa and Charlie. Nora, a working-class wife and mother, has a twelve-year-old daughter, Sara, whose dream is to become a doctor, a wild idea for a working-class child. Together, and helping each other, the two families struggle to survive and endure the six years of war, and Sara fights to reach her impossible dream.

good wartime story.

Any additional comments?

well written story which in the beginning is about amy, a doctor who saw the horrors of the first world war now faced with the prospect of her children serving in the next one. she feels her daughter is safe as she is training to be a doctor but what about her son. what will he do. the story expands to cover her family and the full six years of the war.
Penelope freeman performed the story well bringing the characters to life.
