Book of the Week with Bookmark, Spalding
Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves by Rachel Malik (RRP 8.99). Available from Bookmark in Spalding with £2 off and a further 20% discount with the voucher in this week’s Spalding Guardian (on sale February 8-14).
When Rene Hargreaves is billeted to Starlight Farm as a Land Girl, far from the city where she grew up, she finds farmer Elsie Boston and her country ways quite strange at first.
Yet over the days and months Rene and Elsie slowly start to understand and depend on each other.
Soon they can no longer imagine a life apart from each other.
But a visitor from Rene’s past threatens the life they have built together, a life that has always kept others at a careful distance.
They become involved in a war of their own that endangers everything and will finally expose them to the nation’s press and the full force of the law.
What will they do to protect themselves? And are they prepared for the consequences?
