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.’
‘A touching tale.’
‘An absolute joy to read , full of warmth, and colour and hope.’
‘A good read to curl up with.’
“Being of an older generation – remembering playmates who were evacuated, some of whom preferred to stay in their new surroundings after the war, rather than return to the industrial Midlands – this book rang so true. There is humour tempered with sadness too. A really good, thought provoking read.”
Leah Fleming was born in Lancashire of Scottish parents, and is married with four grown-up children and five grandchildren. She usually writes full-time from a haunted farmhouse in the Yorkshire Dales but is currently taking a gap year for grown-ups and living on the slopes of an olive grove in Crete.
