Book Details

Scotland, 1943. It’s a long hot summer in Scotland but the Women’s Timber Corps have more than forest fires to worry about. Upper class Seffy has spent months proving herself to the other young women, but when new recruits arrive, she quickly feels lost again. She distracts herself by helping set up a Women’s Home Defence Corps, but the idea soon meets resistance from the locals. Dependable Joey had turned her back on love since she ran away from heartbreak to join the Corps, but when she crosses paths with a soldier deployed nearby, she feels a connection with him she’s never felt before – but will she be burned by love again? And young Tattie is desperate to impress the other women and make a new life for herself, far away from her troubled home. But her willingness to impress leaves her at risk of being used… As the summer beats on, can the Lumberjills pull together and protect the forest – and each other?
