SEPARATED BY WAR, LOVE WILL GUIDE THEM BACK TO EACH OTHER...

'I was gripped. 'I couldn't put it down. Heartwrenching at times and so full of hope and resillience at others. I really enjoyed it ****' Real reader review for The Lighthouse Sisters
Perfect for readers of The Nightingale Kristin Hannah, A Woman of War Mandy Robotham and My Name is Eva Suzanne Goldring.
Two sisters, separated by war but joined by their love, courage and sacrifice.
1996: An elegant woman in a nursing home looks back at her life, remembering her experiences during the war on Jersey, the sacrifices she made, the sister she loved. Who is she, and what is the one tragic loss she can never forget?
1940: Sisters Alice and Jenny are in their early twenties when the Germans occupy their home of Jersey. Alice, a nurse, is called to work in the German hospital, unaware that she will find a great love but that she will make an even greater sacrifice and be sent on a long journey of hardship. Meanwhile Alice's sister Jenny is drawn into a circle of islanders rising up to resist their German occupiers.
For both sisters, the war will cause them to make extraordinary choices, experience unimaginable heartbreak, and emerge forever changed...
