Product description

Want love? Want danger? Want your heart just a little bit broken? Try this gorgeous romance: Romeo and Juliet for the Second World War! It’s 1945, and Scottish farm girl Lorna is about to fall for the totally wrong boy – a German prisoner of war. Paul has been sent to work on her dad’s farm, helping the Allies dig for victory. While he sows cabbages, Lorna’s brothers are fighting and risking their lives. Needless to say, Lorna never dreams that love might be on the horizon. But as she gets to know Paul, her heart starts twisting up. Loving Paul is a no-no. It means losing her whole family. He’s totally off-limits. Trouble is, she can’t hate him. Ugh – why does love/life have to be this hard?

  • A breathtaking World War II romance – can love survive a war?
  • For fans of Code Name Verity and Between Shades of Grey
  • Brilliantly evokes rural life in the dark shadow of global conflict
  • Reveals the human complexity behind the brutal face of war
