Softly grow the poppies

Softly grow the poppies

Howard, Audrey

In the summer of 1914, Rose Beechworth, mistress of a charming country house left to her by her wealthy father, is not looking for love. But when spoilt heiress Alice Weatherly decides she must kiss Captain Charlie Summers goodbye, she takes Rose along with her to Lime Street station - and straight into the heart of Charlie's brother, Harry. Although they are neighbours, they have never met, for Rose ignores the social round and Harry is immersed in the difficulties of keeping his father's ramshackle estate together. As the war takes its terrible toll and Charlie disappears into the fog of battle, Alice becomes a heroine, while Rose finds herself running two great houses. It seems impossible that any of them will find happiness again
