A poignant and moving story, that allows you to travel back in time to the Second World War, to experience rationing, air raids and evacuation alongside the characters. The author installs her engaging cast, from different walks of life, from town, from the country, differing in age range and moral fibre, then she really tests their mettle. In a time when life was lived for the moment, when you had to learn to make do and to reinvent, family and friends are key. Observe as the shadow of war slides over the land then without mercy tightens its grip. Wonder as love steals up unannounced, flounders, grows, deepens. Bear witness as kindness and cruelty, devotion and bitterness, friendship and greed all battle it out on the Home Front. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Soldier's Daughter by Rosie Goodwin

A family pulled apart. A love silenced...For as long as Briony Valentine can remember she has been soft on Eddie, the boy next door. But their chance of romance is stifled when the Luftwaffe begin dropping bombs on the midlands. Eddie is called up to serve, as is Briony's father, tearing her world apart. As the telegrams arrive, all she can do is pray. Despite past disagreements, Briony's affluent grandparents open their doors to the three Valentine children, offering them the safety of Cornwall - far from the bombs and far from the only world they've ever known. Will the Valentine family ever unite, and will Briony ever see Eddie again? It is a moving, compelling and wonderfully authentic portrait of family life amongst the perils of WWII, from a much-loved author.
