The Secret Years

The Secret Years

The Great War frees Thomasine Thorne from the narrowness of her childhood.

Nicholas and Lally Blythe, brought up in Drakesden Abbey in the Fens, also wish to escape the passions and enmities of the past. Daniel Gillory, son of the local blacksmith, longs to break away from his impoverished upbringing. The lives of the four are inextricably entwined, and all must experience tragedy and betrayal before they find new hope for the future.
