Harper Collins Publishers, 2017. ISBN 9781460753583
This is a lovely story about love and high society and what women were able to achieve during the war. Sophie Higgs is the daughter of Australia's king of corned beef. She finds herself in Europe learning how to be a lady, with a selection of other upper class girls. As she gets to the end of her season war breaks out. Sophie is forced to make decisions she never thought she would have to make, about love and life.
Miss Lily teaches the girls the skills of how to charm a man in a variety of situations, and little does Sophie know how important what Miss Lily teachers her will be in the future.
This book highlights the efforts and the courage of the women who played a vital role in the war efforts during the First World War. It also highlights the hidden heroism that many women did during the war years with little recognition and little thought of themselves.
I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the next book in the series.
