This is a warm and engaging book. Hester lives in the family home, and provides a refuge for her goddaughter Cleo. Out of the blue they meet Jonah who is working in the district, and whose mother Lucy stayed there as a child during the war.

Lucy has refused to talk about her childhood until now, but encourages Jonah to talk to Hester. Gradually it becomes clear that Lucy's perception of events are rather different from Hester's, which has led to a chasm between them over the years.

The past and present intertwine nicely, and the story gradually unfolds with some tension as we wait to discover what the real truth is. I found it a bit complicated at first, and hard to keep track of all the people, but by the end was enjoying it immensely.
