In World War II–torn England, a young woman must fight to keep her family together, whatever the cost

Ginnie Travis has been working in her father's shop for the past five years, trying to keep it afloat. When scandal rocks her family just as relentless Nazi raids threaten their very lives, Ginnie and her sister are forced to flee and stay with their aunt in the North of England. The last thing she expects to find in the quiet countryside is love, especially with an American soldier. A soldier who has secrets of his own.

Tragedy strikes, the horror of war rages on, and Ginnie will do whatever she must to protect everything she holds dear.

Lily Baxter lives in Dorset. She is the author ofPoppy's War,We'll Meet Again,Spitfire Girls, andThe Girls in Blue. She also writes under the name Dilly Court.
