Spanning the early 1920's to the turmoil of the Second World War, this is a substantial (500 pages) traditional saga set against the Lincolnshire countryside. It centres on Charlotte, and her domineering father who cannot forgive her for not being a son, But Charlotte has a gift of inspiring friendship from others, and is immediately drawn to the family of newcomer Miles Thornton. An engrossing read with lovely characters and some surprises.
