The Dandelion Years by Erica James
Ashcombe was the most beautiful house that Saskia had ever seen. A rambling cottage on the edge of a Suffolk village, it provided a perfect sanctuary to hide from the tragedy which shattered her childhood.
Now an adult, Saskia is still living at Ashcombe, and as a book restorer she devotes her days tending to broken and battered books, daydreaming about the people who had once turned their pages.
When she discovers a hidden notebook – and realises that someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to hide a story of their own – Saskia finds herself drawn into s heart-rending tale of wartime love.
