On the morning of her seventeenth birthday, any hopes that Gilda Morris might have had for a special day are dashed when she hears on the wireless that England has declared war with Germany. Handicapped from birth, Gilda does not get an opportunity to do her bit in the war until four years later. Her neighbor and friend, Mrs. Eleanor Wood, determinedly gets Gilda called up to do war work at her home, Greystone Manor in Warwickshire, where she provides accommodation for airmen stationed at the nearby training field. Within hours of her service, Gilda is able to forget her own disabilities as she witnesses the many sacrifices made by others. Out from under her mother's critical eye, Gilda begins to realize that there is more to her than her deformities. She becomes part of a world to which she had never before been exposed, sees firsthand the vagaries of human nature, and believes that it is almost enough until she finds herself very much in love.

It was very rewarding doing the research for this book. I had no idea at the time that it would become a series when I first began. Now that there are four in the series, counting The Gown Shop on Regent Street, I have had requests to write a fifth, going back to Greystone Manor after the war. I am beginning work on that now.About the Author:
