Born in Colombo, Judith Dunbar spends her teenage years at boarding school, while her beloved mother and younger sister live abroad with her father.

When her new friend Loveday Carey-Lewis invites Judith home for the weekend to Nancherrow, the Carey-Lewises' beautiful estate on the Cornish coast, it is love at first sight.

She falls in love too with the generous Carey-Lewises themselves. With their generosity and kindness, Judith grows from naive girl to confident young woman, basking in the warm affection of a surrogate family whose flame burns brightly. But it is a flame soon to be extinguished in the gathering storm of war. And Judith herself has far to travel before at last . . . coming home.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The novel has a gently sweet flavour, it continues to beguile because of Pilcher's warmth, sincerity and easy, undemanding prose * Sunday Times *
Compelling pages packed with convincing characters, vivid settings and weepy bits * Daily Mail *
A great featherbed of a novel, all the right ingredients * Woman & Home *
Especially good on atmosphere and a lonely teenager's bewilderment, Pilcher's storytelling skills are serene and beguiling * The Times *
Much-needed balm to soothe the troubled mind * Sunday Express *
A well-upholstered good read * Daily Mail *
Classy, lavish entertainment . . . literate pleasure * Publishers Weekly *
Captivating . . . The best sort of book to come home to . . . Readers will undoubtedly hope Pilcher comes home to the typewriter again soon. * New York Daily News *
