Kay | 2 comments Hello everyone. This is a long shot, but since Google can't help me I'm getting desperate. I'm searching for a book for my partner's grandfather, so unfortunately I don't know a lot about it. Here's what I do know:

It must have been published at least 20 years ago, but probably longer. I believe it was a paperback, and probably wasn't by a particularly popular or well-known author.

According to my partner's grandfather, it was set during World War II, and was about two female teachers who buy an old, run down sheep farm/estate in Wales and do it up. I'm not sure whether this was to support the war effort or whether it was unrelated to the war.

Unfortunately this is all I know, but I hope someone can help me find this book for this special man.

Many thanks in advance!
