Perfect for fans of Code Name Verity and The Girl in the Blue Coat, Wait for Me, from debut author Caroline Leech, brings a fresh new voice, and a perfect blend of sweet romance and historical fiction, to a much-loved genre.

It's 1945, and Lorna Anderson's life on her father's farm in Scotland consists of endless chores and rationing, knitting Red Cross scarves, and praying for an Allied victory. So when Paul Vogel, a German prisoner of war, is assigned as the new farmhand, Lorna is appalled. How can she possibly work alongside the enemy when her own brothers are risking their lives for their country?

But as Lorna reluctantly spends time with Paul, she feels herself changing. The more she learns about him--from his time fighting a war he doesn't believe in, to his life back home in Germany--the more she sees the boy behind the soldier.

Soon Lorna is battling her own warring heart. Loving Paul could mean losing her family and the life she's always known. With tensions rising all around them, Lorna must decide how much she's willing to sacrifice before the end of the war determines their fate.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Wait for Me shines a beautifully written light on the precarious nature of love and war. This is a book that makes you want to curl up with a cuppa and read straight through til the morning."--Kathi Appelt, National Book Award Finalist and Newbery Honor Winner
"Caroline Leech's Wait for Me is a delicately written love story, ideal for history and non-history fans alike. It offers everything I crave from a historical novel: a gorgeously evoked setting, an intrepid heroine, and a knee-weakening romance. This book is not to be missed. "--Anne Blankman, author of The Prisoner of Night and Fog series and Traitor Angels
"A sweetly engaging and richly authentic historical romance. Wait for Me charms and satisfies."--Joy Preble, author of the bestselling Dreaming Anastasia series
