Publisher's Summary

For Eveleen Hardcastle life gets no better than growing up on Pear Tree Farm in the Lincolnshire countryside. Her family works hard for the Dunsmore estate and Eveleen finds it impossible to resist the charms of their employer's son, Stephen Dunsmore.

But Jimmy, ever quick to antagonize, ensures that his sister's clandestine trysts do not remain so for long. Mary Hardcastle reacts to the news of her daughter's affair with a shocking ferocity, which seems to be borm more of bitterness than maternal protectiveness. But what is it that fuels Mary's resentment towards her daughter?

Unable to ignore her own feelings, Eveleen continues to meet Stephen in secret. But deception has a cruel price to pay when her beloved father is found dead from a heart attack. And worse yet, Stephen, far from providing Eveleen with the comfort she craves, deserts her in her hour of need and callously evicts the Hardcastles from the farm.

Suddenly homeless, Eveleen is left to take the family reins and she fights to make a new life for her family in Nottinghamshire. And then she makes a stunning discovery about her mother's past which changes all their lives forever....

Lovely story

This book keeps you interested by the intertwined events and wonderful story line right to the end. It leaves you to try and work out what is going to happen next. Wonderful book I would highly recommend it.

Just Wonderful!

Loved this book. The second of Margaret Dickinson’s that I’ve read and far better than the first, even though I really enjoyed the first, based on the 2nd world war. I hope that those who like historical, romantic fiction will put this on their “must” read list! I think it’s definitely worth the read!!
