Diana Calthrop is looking a bit tarnished, her catastrophic taste in men catching up with her. Could straightforward Inspector Ted Stratton be her rescuer? With his wife dead, his children distant, and a case he just can't shake, he'd have to rescue himself first.
1914: The ties between girlhood friends Thea and Kezia have been strained by Thea's embrace of women's suffrage and by Kezia's marriage to Thea's brother Tom, who runs the family farm. When Tom enlists and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the battlefield, the farm becomes Kezia's responsibility. To endure the ensuing turmoil, they hide their despair in letters and cards filled with stories woven to bring comfort.
