really good love story about 2 families coping with running a factory during world war one and the heroine finding out her husband had been shot at dawn by the british army he was wounded at the front line on sick leave and wanted to spend his 2 week sick leave in Liverpool with his new wife and young baby whom he hadn't seen really sad

I have loved every Anne Baker book that I read or listened to so far and this one did not disappoint either.

The story runs from 1914 to 1919. It is the story of Sarah Hoxton and her life and loves. There are letters exchanged from the front line by Sarah and her husband Toby which I though were really good and gave an idea of what life was in WWI. There are joys and sadness in this story but it is well told from start to finish.

There's something about Anne Baker's books. I normally avoid this type of novel like the plague, but she has a way of writing that draws one in to care about her characters. I love her books.
