The second book in Joan's trilogy featuring Mary and Eileen. This one is really intteresting and deals albeit lightly with Eileen's ways of coping with a husband returned from one of the worst prisoner of war camps from WW2. The book isn't all doom and gloom though and there are lots of laughs.Love the conclussion of the story just wish there had beena bit more from Bill's perspective
