Publisher's Summary

As war moves ever closer, the sleepy English village of Crowmarsh Priors settles into a new sort of normal: Evacuees from London are billeted in local homes. The nightly German air raids become grimly mundane. Rationing curtails every comfort. Men leave to fight and die. And five women forge a bond of friendship that will change their lives forever in this engrossing novel of loyalty, loss, and love in the shadow of World War II.
With the hardships of war intensifying every day, the women band together to defeat formidable enemies and find remarkable strength within themselves to help one another. It is a war-forged loyalty certain to endure years and distance. When four of the women return for a celebration 50 years later, their mission is not simply to commemorate or remember. They’ve returned to confront a traitor whose actions cost countless lives — and to avenge one of their own at last.

Very enjoyable story.

I really enjoyed this story, it would have been better had it been narrated buy an English narrated and I felt the scene of the old ladies dishing out punishment to someone they discovered had been involved in war crimes was very weak, totally dissapointed in that but I did like the very ending. The characters were believable and we'll developed, the setting was solid and I read more buy this author. My generation is so blessed to live in peaceful time.
