A loving family is the greatest gift
In 1940, foreign travel is no longer feasible due to the War, so “holidays at home” enjoy a new lease of life, meaning business is booming for Piper’s Café at St David’s Wells. However, not everyone in the family-run business is as happy as they seem.
Beth Castle has known Freddy Clements her entire life, and they are certain to become engaged any day now. But war changes everything, and with Freddy and her brothers going off to fight, it appears their lives will turn in unexpected directions.
Swingboats on the Sand is the second of the Holidays at Home books, a series of enchanting British wartime sagas from the much-loved author Grace Thompson.
