The Dandelion Years (Hardback)Erica James (author)
A gorgeous tale of friendship and love from Sunday Times bestseller Erica James.

When she discovers a notebook carefully concealed in an old Bible - and realising someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to hide a story of their own - Saskia finds herself drawn into a heart-rending tale of wartime love...
