On the Home Front, one girl is determined to make a difference.

Publisher Description

On the Home Front, one girl is determined to make a difference. But Edie's hopes of serving overseas are dashed when she's sent to be a Land Girl in a sleepy Cumbrian village. Prue has shut the world out since her son went away to fight. Yet when she's asked to take in a Land Girl and two little evacuees from London, she has no choice. Edie's heart breaks, seeing the children's cold welcome. But when the evacuees take in a stray puppy, even Prue can't say no. Edie realises Applefield Manor could become a sanctuary. But can she persuade Prue to open her heart, and her home? A moving, uplifting wartime story that fans of Dilly Court will love. Praise for Edie's Home for Strays: 'A plucky heroine whose heart embraces any stray animal amidst a cast of believable characters you can't help caring for - this is a moving story of friendship and love set against the backdrop of the Second World War' Molly Green, author of A Sister's Courage 'An unputdownable, uplifting read which will tug at your heartstrings' Rosie Hendry, author of The Mother's Day Club
