It is 1914, and Eveleen Hardcastle, now in in her early 30s, has married Richard. As the First World War breaks out, Eveleen, a sophisticated young woman, is left to manage the factory while Richard goes off to fight for his country.
Eveleen's mother, Mary, has found happiness at last in her marriage to Josh. Her young granddaughter, Bridie, still lives at home, and is beautiful, but has a spirited, strong will which her grandmother finds hard to control. Bridie is secretly besotted with her godfather, Andrew, whom she is convinced she will marry when she is older.
While the war plays out, Bridie becomes a nurse, looking after wounded soldiers billeted in the local Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire stately homes and there finds a vocation that is both rewarding and gives her a maturity beyond her years....
This was a lovely sequel to Tangled Threads with the follow up of Bridie's life after Rebecca's death. Well done
It certainly met my expectations. I would recommend this book. And fantastic hearing by this author and the narrator is great. Cannot wait to start another book by this author.
