An Heir for Burracombe by Lilian Harry

It's a summer's day in 1953 that turns Hilary Napier's life upside-down. When Marianne, a beautiful French woman, knocks on her door, Hilary can't help but be struck by Robert, the young boy with her. He has the same eyes as the brother she lost in the war. As she listens to Marianne's sad tale, she realises her soldier-brother lives on in the son he never met. But this is only the first revelation ...As the village of Burracombe tries to make sense of the strangers in their midst, there is also much to celebrate.
