A Home from Home

A novel by

An emotional and uplifting World War 2 historical novella from the author of the award-winning THE MOTHER'S DAY CLUB.

Land Girls Phylly and Gracie have become the best of friends, supporting each other as they do their bit for the war effort at Catchetts Farm.

Norfolk, England – 1944

The two Land Girls enjoy life at Catchetts Farm, despite exhausting work in all weathers and worrying about loved ones caught up in the war. Gracie’s thoughts are never far from her airman husband who risks his life on night-time missions, while Phylly has already suffered a secret loss.

New arrivals at the farm bring fresh challenges for the Land Girls. Phylly takes ten-year-old Jimmy, an evacuee from London, under her wing and tries her best to help him overcome his heartbreaking past. Meanwhile, Gracie finds it hard to welcome Italian Prisoners of War, Benedict and Roberto, who’ve been brought in to assist with the work but who are a stark reminder of the reality of war.

After a chance encounter with Edwin, a handsome American GI, Phylly must face up to her past before she can make the right decision — one which could finally give her the happy ending she has always wanted.

Will Phylly and Gracie’s bond of friendship be strong enough to see them through these toughest of times?
