Nora was sent to live with Grace’s family when she was twelve. London was being bombed, and her beloved mum sent her away for her own safety.

Grace is the daughter of a minister in rural England. On the surface her family is pretty near perfect, but appearances lie.

To Nora, fresh from the horrors of London during the Blitz, Grace’s home and family look like paradise. Appearances can be deceiving. She grows to love Grace as a sister, and maybe more than that. Life’s twists and turns can bring good and evil, and Nora sees both growing up with some pretty important secrets.

This is an interesting and engrossing story told in two parts. In the first part, Nora is twelve and new to the rural life and Grace’s family. In the second, she is at the end of her life and looking back on her life and her secrets. The story is well told and has quite a bit of darkness. Nora’s feelings for Grace can be a little disturbing at times, but are well described and quite real. I do not want to give away the plot and Nora’s secrets, but will recommend this story very highly.
