With Love from Miss Lily: A Christmas Story

From the author of Miss Lily's Lovely Ladies comes a moving and heart-warming story that is perfect for Christmas - and beyond.

December 1918

 

This first peacetime Christmas should be perfect.

 

But this is ceasefire, not peace. Influenza ravages Europe and the supplies Sophie ordered six months ago for her Belgian and French hospitals have not arrived from Australia.

And the old woman in Ward 3 will not stop knitting.

 

Yet even in war-torn Europe Christmas miracles are possible, as a stranger reveals the extraordinary story of the way in which thousands of women resistance workers sent coded messages, including the most important message a woman can send.

And Christmas does arrive, the perfect Christmas, with love from Miss Lily.
