I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I got this book at the library and once I read to the part of Alice's story, I couldn't put the book down, which is also around the time in the book where Lucy's story picked up.

I was curious to read a book not set in the present day or in Regency England. This book had a romance set in the 60s with a back story into World War I. It was interesting and sweet. There was nothing life changing about the book, but it was interesting enough that I kept reading.

A bit of history from WWI and from 1950's Britain. A great story and very easy to read.
For Downton Abbey fans - 3 1/2 stars - pleasant but not ultimately memorable.

Elizabeth Jeffrey was born and grew up in Wivenhoe, the village of her parents and grandparents. Far from being born with a quill in her hand, Elizabeth didn't start serious writing until after her children were born, beginning with short stories - on the premise that not so much paper was wasted if they were rejected!
