Ernest, Isabel and Grace Munday were blessed with childhoods full of fun and laughter, but the coming of the First World War will change their lives forever…

Tom Munday, a skilled carpenter, is more than content with his lot in life: he’s been blessed with a fine wife and three wonderful children. But when war breaks out, his firstborn, Ernest, is called upon to join the army. Tom’s eighteen-year-old daughter Isabel finds the path of true love does not run smoothly in London’s poor East End. And the youngest, fifteen-year-old Grace, wilful and headstrong, finds herself drawn down a path she never wished to embark on. The consequences are far worse than she could ever have imagined.

About the Author

Born in Hampshire, Maggie Bennett worked as a nurse and midwife until her retirement in 1991. Having been an avid reader and scribbler since childhood, she first began to approach her writing seriously after her husband’s death in 1983. She enjoyed modest success with articles and short stories before the publication of a medical romance in 1992, which won that year’s RNA New Writers’ Award, and she wrote six more before turning to mainstream fiction in 1996. Maggie has two grown-up daughters and a grandson, and lives in Suffolk.
