North Yorkshire, September 1939.

Rosina Calvert-Lazenby, the widowed matriarch of Raven Hall, must be strong for her five daughters as the war approaches. When the RAF come to stay, Rosina is intrigued by their charismatic – albeit young – sergeant. But is there time for love with the war looming?

Grace Calvert-Lazenby is twenty-one years old and ready for a new adventure. Joining the Women’s Royal Naval Service, she trades the safety of Raven Hall for exhausting drills and conflicting acts of secrecy. It’s not easy, but Grace knows that everyone has a part to play in what’s to come.

With so much on the line, will Rosina and Grace have the courage to lead those around them into the unknown?

This heartwarming, dramatic World War II saga is perfect for fans of Vicki Beeby, Kate Thompson and Rosie Clarke.
