The schoolmistress

Sullivan, Maggie (Novelist)2022
Books, Manuscripts
It's 1940 and for the Lancashire town of Greenhill, everything is about to change. Local schoolteacher Violet Pegg is surprised to get a letter out of the blue. Her Canadian pen-friend, Daniel, will soon be joining the RAF and be stationed close by. Violet hopes their long-distant friendship is about to become something more. Vicky Buckley, the town postmistress, has recently married the local doctor, but she is shocked when an unexpected visitor turns up on her doorstep. Claire Gold works with her aunt, Sylvia, in the haberdashery shop. When Violet asks her for a favour, it sets off a chain of events that will threaten their friendship. With the dark clouds of conflict looming, will it be love, and not war, that Greenhill must contend with?
