Description of this Book
Bryony Valentine lives at home with her mother Lois, father James and younger siblings. For as long as she can remember, she has been soft on the boy next door, Eddie, but her best friend Ruth has feelings for him too. Eddie is called up to serve, as is her father and Bryony's world is torn apart. As the telegrams pour in to different families along the street, Bryony can only pray for their safety. Lois' family disowned her when she met Bryony's father, but when the wartime evacuees need a safe home - Lois' parents open their doors. The three Valentine children are dispatched to Cornwall - far from the bombs and the only world they've ever known. A family displaced. Their futures in the hands of enemy bombs. Will the Valentine family ever unite and will Bryony ever see Eddie again?
