Wartime Wishes for the Land Girls

Ellie Curzon

In the darkest days of war, can a land girl’s wish come true?

England, 1942. With Christmas days away, the land girls of Gosling Farm are full of merriment, fetching boughs of holly and cutting down trees. Only Lottie feels far from festive cheer after her sister’s death in an air raid. But with the help of handsome vicar and injured veteran Matthew, she begins to feel hopeful once more.

Then one frosty night, a German bomber plane crashes nearby. A survivor is missing, injured and in desperate need of help. With their own brave airmen risking their lives in the snowy skies overhead, the kindness of the village is tested like never before. But as Matthew preaches goodwill to his flock, his passion captures Lottie’s heart, as well as his sparkling blue eyes…

But this is no ordinary German airman: his capture would change the course of the war. Soon the eyes of Churchill and the whole country are on the little English village. And amid the chaos, Matthew’s young niece Daisy goes missing. As they desperately search the countryside, Lottie sends out a wish to the bright winter moon: keep Daisy safe.

With a blizzard raging and an enemy airman out there in the dark, can the land girls and their brave vicar rescue Daisy? And although the war feels closer than ever, will Lottie and Matthew find their own happy ever after in time for Christmas day?

An utterly addictive, tear-jerking and joyful tale of friendship, romance and bravery during World War Two. The perfect cozy winter read for fans of Nadine Dorries, Diney Costeloe and Kitty Neale.
