Jack Sheffield's delightful new novel - a nostalgic and humorous story set in the early 1950s.
Lily has just arrived, ready to begin her first year as a teacher at the village school. There to welcome her is John Pruett, who, after his years in the war, has settled into the role of headmaster. Tom, the local bobby, is also on hand to make her feel at home up north. But Lily has a secret lurking in her past that threatens the new life she’s trying to build.
Can she move forward and begin to love again?
In his new novel, Jack Sheffield invites you to travel back in time. Back to the days when owning
a television made you the envy of the neighbours, Woolworth’s still had pride of place on the
high street and the village panto was the height of entertainment.
