Summary

It is 1942, and the Second World War has been going on for three wearying years. Alex and Emily Hamilton are both struggling, one with Banbridge's over-worked textile mills, the other with rationing and shortages of both food and fuel which make life hard. But there are still moments of unexpected happiness at even the darkest of times.

Shadow on the Land Summary

Shadow on the Land by Anne Doughty

It is 1942, and the Second World War has been going on for three wearying years. Work is hard in the Ulster mills in Northern Ireland where Alex Hamilton struggles to keep overworked machines going, just as his wife Emily tries to provide food and comfort not only for their own children, but for the many young American soldiers stationed nearby. Bad news comes daily, but there is still a welcome for friends and strangers, and moments of happiness come at even the darkest of times.
