Summary
Newly widowed after a whirlwind wartime romance, Stella Nolan is preparing to meet her late husband's family for the first time. But not all her new in-laws are prepared to offer Stella a warm welcome. The war has left a bitter legacy and at Warren's End Stella finds a family riven with tension, disappointments, shameful secrets and bitter quarrels. In particular, Stella's new sister-in-law Rosalie makes her hostility plain, and it's not always easy for Stella to stand up to her overbearing mother-in-law. An unforeseen turn of events means that Stella ends up staying with the Nolan family a great deal longer than she had planned - and her extended visit is destined to bring joy, heartbreak, scandal - and unexpected love ..
Summary
Near the end of WWI, Stella marries John, an army captain with a shoulder wound and battle fatigue, whom she has spent two months nursing back to health. The joy of a whirlwind romance and wedding soon ends when John is shipped back to the battlefield and killed. Now John's wealthy family wants to meet the common girl who tricked their beloved son into marrying her.
