Alice Osbourne, the stolid daughter of the late vicar, is reeling from the news that Richard Fairfax broke their engagement to marry Evangeline Fontaine, an American girl from the Deep South. Evangeline's arrival causes a stir in the village but not the chaos that would ensue if they knew her motives for being there. Scrappy Elsie Pigeon is among the poor of London who see the evacuations as a chance to escape a life of destitution. Another new arrival is Tanni Zayman, a young Jewish girl who fled the horrors of Europe and now waits with her newborn son, certain that the rest of her family is safe and bound to show up any day. And then there's Frances Falconleigh, a madcap, fearless debutante whose father is determined to keep her in the countryside and out of the papers. --amazon.com.

Great book! I just wish the last chapter was added into the rest of the story.

For a first novel, I thought this book was very good. There are some inconsistencies and a couple of just plain errors, but that is the fault of the editor, not the writer.

The author's biography of Martha Washington is excellent! Well worth reading.

I look forward to more books by Ms. Bryan.
