Third story in the Suttons of Yorkshire saga.
Love in a time of war. Blackouts, munitions, kitbags and rations once again pepper daily life. Daisy Dwerryhouse, the spirited daughter of gamekeeper Tom and his wife, ex-sewing-maid Alice, finds herself apart from her true love, Keth Purvis.
Joining-up fever is infectious. Daisy is now a Wren, based in perilous Liverpool. Keth involved in secret war work in America. Will their mutual passion survive such a divide, as well as the tribulations and untold dramas of a world at war.
Britain fights with desperate stubbornness, as the stench of undignified death and the snarl of enemy fighters touch Rowangarth. For Daisy and Keth, and for all the Suttons, these are years of danger and change: a bewildering time when a nation cannot even begin to hope for an end to the conflict.
