In spring 1941, when London is under attack, Gwen Davis escapes the city for Devon, where she will instruct young girls in growing crops for the Home Front.

Through them, Gwen comes to understand the unbelievable joy and the unbearable risks of love. Called “exquisite” by The New York Times, this beautifully nuanced novel received rave reviews around the world.
