Polly's heart is torn in two as she says goodbye to Alice and heads to the Beach View boarding house in Cliffehaven, where she throws herself into her work. But as she confronts the fact that Adam may not survive his injuries, a telegram arrives at Beach View: The boat Alice was on has been torpedoed by a German U-boat....

A gentle story

An easy warm yet thought provoking tale of life during WWII . Some good strong female characters.
Liked the narrator. Would definitely buy another book by Ellie Dean.
