Review

Praise for Leah Fleming:

‘A beautiful, almost poetically-written tale of love and tragedy in the Yorkshire Dales mainly set during the Second World War. The characters are real flesh and blood and the reader shares their ups and downs with genuine empathy.’
Maureen Lee, bestselling author of Mother of Pearl.

‘An epic tale of hardship and tragedy straddling the Second World War.’
The Bookseller

‘A touching tale.’
Closer

‘An absolute joy to read , full of warmth, and colour and hope.’
Warwickshire Telegraph

‘A good read to curl up with.’
Lincolnshire Echo
