A captivating and heartwarming story of love and loss in a time of war and its aftermath.
Previously published as Only The Wind is Free. From the grimy back-streets of a Northumbrian mining town to a Japanese POW camp, this magically enthralling and heartwarming saga of a family in the north-east of England between the wars tells the story of Annie Manon, whose love of life and fierce determination help her to survive her father's suicide and the break-up of her family, and to escape the poverty and despair around her.
While her dreams for a future that will free her, her beloved step-brother Tom and her sweetheart Georgie sustain them all through the terrible years of the Second World War.
