The apple of her eye
The apple of her eye
Evans, Pamela2017
February, 1945: April Green and her cousin Heather are wondering if the war will ever end. Then the local pub in Chiswick takes a direct hit, and April's father is killed in the blast. Volunteering to tend his allotment, she discovers a passion for growing vegetables. Meanwhile, Winnie Benson is coming to terms with her husband's spinal injuries. He may never walk again, and until their son George returns from the merchant navy, Winnie must run their greengrocer's on her own. Once the war is over and George is home, things start to improve, but rationing remains in force and vegetables are hard to find - so April's supply of home-grown produce couldn't be more welcome. And before long, George can't help wishing he was the apple of her eye...
