June Clay, a truly resilent lady, with a huge heart, great sense of humour and a dear and loving friend.
Dina Markovitch Sugarbroad  Her pluck and facinating pre-World War II reminisces of life in London, England, were my inspiration to write this novel.
First words
Tilly Lister had fulfilled all that had been expected of her and that made her proud.
The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend.  I have no wealth to bestow on him.  If he knows that I am happy in loving him, he will want no other reward.  Is not friendship devine in thisf?.......Henry David Thoreau

Book description
A beautiful narrative that bears witness to the fascinating lives of two young women, Tilly from Lancashire in central England, and Nuella, from Northern Ireland, who, having fled their regional upbringing, strive to succeed beyond their humble origins.

Meeting just prior to World War II, in a London boarding house, both are resilient beyond their years and incredibly determined to create better lives for themselves and for those they come to love.  Their innate decency continually plays them beneficial hands; from landing a job at the top secret wartime installation of Bletchely Park, to a post-war life, as war brides, in the burgeoning City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Long after the novel ends, you will remember the epic friendship and journey of Tilly and Nuella.
