Book DescriptionKaty, maidservant at Cheadle Manor, longs to escape her narrow life. Frustrated by personal tragedy, she becomes a mechanic in the WAAC. Through the horrors of WW1, she discovers only love brings freedom.
Some more detail: In this heartbreaking romance, feisty heroine, Katy, dreams of a better life than just being a domestic servant at Cheadle Manor. Her one attempt to escape is thwarted when her flirtation with the manor's heir results in a scandal that shocks the local community.
Jem Beagle has always loved Katy. His offer of marriage rescues her but personal tragedy divides them. Jem leaves his beloved Wiltshire to become a reluctant soldier on the battlefields of The First World War. Katy is left behind, restless and alone.
Lionel White, the local curate, has just returned from India, bringing a dash of colour to the small village, and offers Katy a window on the wider world.
Katy decides she has to play her part in a world at arms and joins up as a WAAC girl. She finally breaks free from the stifling class-ridden hierarchies that bind her but the brutality of 20th century global war brings home the price she has paid for her search.
