A Scent of Lavender

New or Used: $14.95
A gripping WW2 saga: the arrival of Land girls and the army turn life upside down in a Yorkshire town. Lorna Hatherwood, a middle-class housewife, lives close to Dickon's Wood. She is sheltered from her emotions by marriage to a dull husband, ten years her senior. Then the Army arrives and Lorna's restricted life expands as she catches the roving eye of a handsome young medical officer. Ness Nightingale is on the run from a disastrous love affair with a married man. Liverpool Ness joins the Land Army, only to find herself in the arms of another suitor. But he is a conscientious objector, and maybe not that suitable after all.
