Chaff Upon the Wind

Chaff Upon the Wind

Description

Set in the epic years before and after the First World War, Chaff Upon The Wind is a moving novel of Lincolnshire life from Margaret Dickinson

Kitty Clegg has always accepted the hard work in her job as a kitchen maid at the Manor Farm. But now, at sixteen, she seizes the chance to go up in the world and to become a lady's maid.

Handsome Jack Thorndyke has more than once held Kitty's adoring gaze. As he prepares his gleaming threshing machine for its winter work, he finally asks her to be his chosen Harvest Nell when the last of the golden Lincolnshire corn is cut.

Carried away by her excitement, Kitty fails to heed the warnings whispered into her ear. Jack is far from the marrying kind. Worse still, his playful charm has attracted another - a young girl far above his station. Will Kitty's dreams be scattered like chaff upon the wind? Or can she hold on to a very special kind of love: a love which will bring both heartache and joy to the Manor in the turbulent decades to come?
