WAR AT HOME - Book 5

Till The Boys Come Home

In 1918 the Great War has taken so much from so many and it threatens to take even more still from the Hunters, their friends and their servants.

Edward, in a bid to run away from problems at home, decides not to resist conscription and ends up at the Front. Sadie's hopes for love are unrequited, and Laura has to flee Artemis House when it is shelled. Ethel, the nursery maid, masks her own pain by caring for other people's children but she must take care not to get too attached.

The government has to bring in rationing, and manpower shortages means the conscription age is extended. The Russians have fallen out of the war and a series of terrifying all-out attacks drive the Allies back almost to the Channel, and for the first time England faces the real prospect of defeat. No one can see an end to the war and yet, a small glimmer of hope remains . . .
