As war rages, can the Land Girls still enjoy the magic of Christmas? Set during the Second World War in Yorkshire, this is a wonderful, festive tale of friendship, romance and triumph over adversity that fans of Donna Douglas and Daisy Styles will love.
Jenny Holmes lives in a beautiful part of Yorkshire and sets her sagas in the industrial heartland nearby. She enjoys horse riding, gardening and walking her dog in the dales. She also writes children's books as Jenny Oldfield.
Praise for Jenny Holmes * : *
While the novel doesn't gloss over the hardship that the women have to endure, it is as much about the special bond that develops between them and is, more than anything, a celebration of female friendship. Holmes handles her huge cast of characters and several narrative threads with consummate skill and the period setting feels very authentic. It makes for a warmly evocative and satisfying festive read. * Yorkshire Post *
