In her debut novel Shirley Mann skillfully draws on her parents' wartime romance for this heartwarming story of love in such testing circumstances * Scottish Daily Mail *
I found this book hard to put down and it resonates with me still. * Katie Hutton, author of The Gypsy Bride *
[The story] read so true to me and I really didn't want to put it down . . . It may be fiction but those things could, and did, happen. * Vera Morgan, wartime WAAF *
An impeccably researched and uplifting story of love, loss and courage: a heartwarming read that will captivate all those who love a good war story. * Clare Harvey, author of The Gunner Girl *
A wonderful, inspiring story. I can't wait to read more from Shirley Mann. * Sheila Newberry, author of The Nursemaid's Secret *
