Book description
It is 1916 and the dark days of World War One drag on. Both Jim and Wally are returning to the Front line when Norah discovers she has been left a legacy - a large house complete with stables and its own farm in the Surrey countryside. Her initial reaction of dismay soon changes when Norah realises that she can help the war effort, and together with her father, they turn "Homewood" into a house for wounded and exhausted civilians. When a telegram arrives with the worst news of all, Norah and her father somehow manage to keep going - until the day that brings a miracle into their lives.
