Publisher Description

She wanted a new life. Now she’s risking it to save others.

Cecily Hanson longs to live life on her own terms—to leave the shadow of her overbearing mother and marry her childhood sweetheart once he returns from the Great War. But when her fiancé is lost at sea, this future is shattered. Looking for meaning again, she decides to perform for the troops in France.

Life on the front line is both rewarding and terrifying, and Cecily soon finds herself more involved—and more in danger—than she ever thought possible. And her family has followed her to France. Her sister, Merryn, has fallen for a young drummer whose charm hides a dark side, while their mother, Queenie—a faded star of the stage tormented by her own secret heartache—seems set on a path of self-destruction.

As the war draws to a close and their hopes turn once again to the future, Cecily and Merryn are more determined than ever to unravel the truth about their mother’s past: what has she been hiding from them—and why?

About the Author

Freda Lightfoot has been a teacher, bookseller, and, in a mad moment, a smallholder on the freezing fells of the Lake District where she tried her hand at the “good life” by keeping sheep and hens, planting a small wood, and even learning how to make jam. She has now given up her thermals and built a house in an olive grove in Spain, where she produces her own olive oil and sits in the sun on the rare occasions she is not writing. She still likes to spend the rainy summers in the United Kingdom. She has published over forty novels, including many bestselling family sagas and historical fiction.
