A Distant Dream : It takes courage and forgiveness to survive sickness and war Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

It's 1936 in West London, and fifteen-year-old May Stubbs and her family have endured the worst of The Depression.

Looking forward to a more prosperous future, they take on a derelict cricket pavilion, convert it into a cafe and general store, and find it quickly becomes the hub of the community.

Then May contracts tuberculosis, and the way ahead looks less certain.

Leaving her best friend, Betty Lane, and lifelong soul mate, George Bailey, behind, she is sent away to fight off the illness.

But on her return to London, she finds things have changed. And when war is declared, it is clear that serious complications and heartache lie in store for them all.
