Charlotte Brookes flees her lecherous guardian, McBride, taking her younger sister with her. After a year on the road, they stumble into a Yorkshire village. There, they are taken in by the Wheelers, owners of the village shop. This new life is strange for Charlotte, but preferable to living with McBride or surviving on the roads.
Harry Belmont is an important man in the village, but he’s missing something in his life. His budding friendship with Charlotte gives him hope she will feel more for him one day, and he will have the woman he needs.
However, when McBride finds out where Charlotte lives, his threats begin, and Harry takes it upon himself to keep Charlotte safe. Only, World War I erupts and Harry enlists.
Left to face a world of new responsibilities, and Harry’s difficult sister, Charlotte must run the gauntlet of family disputes, McBride’s constant harassment and the possibility of the man she loves being killed.
Can Charlotte find the happiness that always seems under threat, and will Harry return home to her?
This book is excellent and I really enjoyed it!!
The story line is very good and it has a great flow. The plot is full of emotion and I was completely immersed in the story. The author’s writing style really suits this genre and this book is executed very, very well.
I loved everything from the stylish front cover to the ending. I really enjoyed the characters, they are well developed and I thought Charlotte was a brilliant character, I warmed to her straight away.
Five stars from me, a very good story, well written and one I am very highly recommending!
