Two young friends go to war, but only one makes it home. Why is he not welcomed?
In modern-day Exeter, Ros discovers what happened,
but in doing so reveals long-held family secrets.
For better, or for worse?
"a gripping and well-researched WW2 story, full of heart and emotion. Ros didn't just hold her own future in her hands,
she held the destiny of the people that she now knew as friends."
What an incredible story.
I loved the songs, felt like I could hear
the music and adored the ending.
Truly a wonderful read."
