Author: Rosemary Rudland

Nelly Spencer, an English woman working for an animal welfare organisation in
France, is sent to investigate an isolated farm in the northern region of Normandy. What she discovers, however, is something that will change her life forever: a dusty Allied jeep left from the D-Day invasion. An elderly farm lady named Louise claims it belonged to her husband Michel.
As she gradually recounts the story of the jeep and the romance between an injured Canadian soldier and his nurse, Nelly is drawn into the sombre memory of war-torn France. At the same time confronted with the uncertainty surrounding her own childhood.
