If The Sock Fits! – Book 2 of The Salvaged Summer Trilogy



by Dominique Allen

“You get them to believe they can fight back and they stop feeling beaten.”

This second book in the Salvaged Summer series moves on from the Dunkirk-summer of 1940, to the harsh reality of harvest time in the countryside as the Battle of Britain rages in the skies overhead, then the news starts coming of the London Blitz.

Churchill was right about ‘the Few’ being the ones to save them through the summer, but it was going to take ‘the many’: the Land Army and the locals, to pull together if they were going to get through the coming winter.

The Lads up at the RAF hospital were getting concerned about what was giving the surgeon a twitch and Gertie, the 14-year-old errand boy, couldn’t be having that… it was only a matter of time before he managed to scoop up patients and nurses in his escapade.

Format: Hardback

Books 1 and 3 in the trilogy also available to buy through the Lincolnshire Life webshop.
