The thrilling wartime love story from national treasure Alan Titchmarsh.
It’s the late 1930s when seventeen-year-old Rosamund Hanbury leaves behind her coastal Devonshire home for the fast pace of high society London. Under the expert guidance of her formidable aunt, the country mouse learns how to act like a lady. And when the enigmatic Harry Napier sweeps her off her feet, she could almost forget that Britain has declared war. But the Phoney War ends. Harry is posted, London reels from the first bombings of the Blitz and Rosamund suffers a devastating personal loss that leaves her all the more determined to do her bit for the war effort. Joining the Special Forces she is sent to work alongside the Resistance on a top secret mission in France, where she learns that no one is what they seem: at home or abroad.
