Book Description

23 Jun 2011

Nell Whitaker is fifteen when war breaks out and, despite her protests, her mother sends her to live with her Auntie Kath on a remote farm in Anglesey. Life on the farm is hard, and Nell is lonely after living in the busy heart of Liverpool all her life. Only her friendship with young farm hand Bryn makes life bearable. But when he leaves to join the merchant navy, Nell is alone again, with only the promise of his return to keep her spirits up.

But Bryn's ship is sunk, and Bryn is reported drowned, leaving Nell heartbroken. Determined to bury her grief in hard work, Nell finds herself growing closer to Auntie Kath, whose harsh attitude hides a kind heart. Despite their new closeness, however, she dare not question her aunt about the mysterious photograph of a young soldier she discovers in the attic.

As time passes, the women learn to help each other through the rigours of war. And when Nell meets Bryn's friend Hywel, she begins to believe that she, too, may find love...

2.0 out of 5 stars Tough Going 11 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read Katie Flynn novels before and have enjoyed them, which was why I thought I'd give this book a go.

Well, I'm sorry to say I found it hard going. The first half nothing happened and the second half only picked up half speed. This could certainly be halved in length to give this book any credibility.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer, but I perhaps wouldn't be quite so harsh.

Certainly not your best Katie.

1.0 out of 5 stars The most banal book I ever read 3 Aug 2011
By Anne
Format:Paperback
I don't know who told Katie Flynn she could write, but whoever it was they were joking. This book is hardly worth using as a doorstop. I kept reading on, hoping something would happen, but was sadly disappointed. It is totally unconvincing and without credibility. Don't waste your money.
