Can the bonds of motherhood give them the strength they’ll need to get through the war?
St Ives, Spring 1943.
After having given up her baby at seventeen, Sonya is inspired by her work at an orphanage to discover what happened to her daughter twenty-five years ago. Reunited, they struggle to bond whilst braving the war together.
Nurse Lily has returned to St Ives to finish training as a midwife. But when old flame Tristan is brought in wounded, she must put the past firmly to bed in order to care for him.
And working at Tristan’s convalescent home, Mary longs for the romance she reads of in her novels. But her overprotective mother is making that more difficult at every turn…
In times of war, the Cornish Girls can rely on one another to make it through. But can they lean on the bonds of motherhood for support too?
A heart-warming tale of motherhood in wartime, for fans of Nancy Revell and Donna Douglas.
