The Lighthouse Sisters

A gripping, moving story of love, courage and sacrifice, inspired by real events, of two sisters in occupied Jersey during World War Two - one a nurse, who is transported to Germany, the other working for the island's resistance. Perfect for readers of The Nightingale Kristin Hannah, A Woman of War Mandy Robotham and My Name is Eva Suzanne Goldring.

An elderly lady looks back at her life, remembering her experiences during the war on Jersey, her sister's journey, and the one tragic loss she can never forget...

1940: Sisters Alice and Jenny are in their early twenties when the Germans occupy their home of Jersey. Alice, a nurse, is called to work in the German hospital, unaware that she will find a great love but that she will make an even greater sacrifice and be sent to a place across the seas where she will witness unbearable suffering. Meanwhile her sister Jenny is drawn into a circle of islanders who decide to rise up and resist the occupiers. For both sisters, the war will cause them to make extraordinary choices, experience unimaginable heartbreak, and emerge forever changed...
