A beautiful story of love, loss and belonging set in the Devon countryside during WWII. A quick read - perfect book for a cold winter evening. I really loved this story and hope the other readers will too!

Our bookclub really enjoyed this book...lots of discussion. WWII story about girls in the Women's Land Army, organized to grow potatoes for the war effort. The women are posted to an old estate, along with a Canadian regiment.

I absolutely loved this book, it was a quick read with so much packed into the story that you need to read it twice to experience parts you might have missed. The story of a woman finding herself in one of the worst times in history and how she becomes who she really is and what she can be. Set in WWII you see that even though bombs are dropping, people still have "normal" everyday problems to deal with. A excellent read.

An almost poetic story about a woman working to grow produce for the war effort in London during WWII. Very interesting. I don't usually read this type of book, but I very much enjoyed it.

I thought this was a great book. There are interesting characters, and the story line is fairly unique. Well-written, I recommend it.
