An inspiring and uplifting tale of the strength of women during war, for fans of Nancy Revell and Vicki Beeby. By the author of Lily's War, Bobby's War and Hannah's War. The Isle of Man, 1942Manx born and bred, Bridget Harrison loves the island and knows every inch of it like the back of her hand. But that doesn't mean she wants to be there now, as World War II rages around the world. A newly-trained police officer, living in the vibrant and bustling city of London, she thought she had it all. A budding career, celebrity status as one of only a few female officers, and a busy social life. Then World War II strengthened its grip and she found herself posted back to the island - a stark contrast to the exciting streets of the capital. But, tasked with managing Rushen Camp, a women's internment camp where Jews have to rub shoulders with Nazi Germans, she unearths a cauldron of resentment and fear that brings a dangerous war right to the shores of the Island. Bridget realises the barbed wire around the camp is keeping in secrets that will test her training to the limit and what seems like a simple arrest leads her down a path that puts her and the Island's security at risk. And then there are the two brothers- one she's adored since childhood who's become a war hero and the other a brave lifeboatman and farmer. Bridget finds she is torn between being the adult she wants to be and the tomboy from her childhood, who roamed the cliffs without boundaries.
