Far from home, an adventure they'll never forget...

June 1940. Evacuee twins Connie and Jessie are reminded every day of the differences between a Yorkshire summer and what they had previously known in London's Bermondsey.

Life at Tall Trees vicarage, Harrogate, is full of adventure, with the arrival of a mischievous pony called Milburn who soon sets about showing who's boss.

But Auntie Peggy is bracing herself for bad news - since the birth of their beautiful baby Holly, something has been very wrong between her and husband Bill and an unexpected visitor soon makes clear exactly what that is...

In this heartwarming tale of evacuees far from home, Katie King returns with a novel full of nostalgia and delight.
