A Wedding for the Cornish Girls Synopsis

The fifth heartwarming instalment in the Cornish Girls series

Can love still thrive in the uncertainty of war?

Cornwall, Summer 1943

Eighteen-year-old Alice receives a mysterious work summons for a special unit in Bude. Nervous but excited, she starts training straight away.

Meanwhile, land girl Penny also heads to Bude. With a new job at the village farm shop, she dreams of finding love.

Young widow Florence runs the local boarding house. When American troops are billeted to stay, Florence butts heads with their Staff Sergeant immediately.

But might sparks fly for Florence when she least expects it? Can Penny pluck up the courage to pursue romance? And will Alice be up to the task?

Most importantly, can love triumph for the Cornish Girls, even amidst the uncertainty of war?

A heart-warming tale of love in wartime, for fans of Nancy Revell and Donna Douglas.
