Nell Whitaker is 15 when war breaks out and her mother sends her to live with her Auntie Kath in a remote farmhouse on Anglesey. At first Nell hates it, but her friendship with Bryn, who works on the farm whilst waiting for his call-up papers, helps a lot. So when he leaves to join his ship, Nell is counting the days to his return. But her heart is broken when news reaches her that Bryn’s ship has been bombed and he has been drowned. Determined to bury her grief in hard work, Nell finds herself growing closer to Auntie Kath. As time passes, the women learn to help each other through the rigours of war.
I could totally visualise the countryside and homes. I loved the characters and enjoyed the audio very much.

Just my sort of book! Not too heavy but with story enough to keep me interested. The performance was good but the accents a little over the top.
fantastic read and good story really enjoyed listening to this book cant wait to listen to more of her books
