Daughter of the Home Front by Jennie Jones is a story that I found to be so heartwarming.
Emma Hatton has always been dominated by her mother. She has found it easier to say “Yes Mum” and get on with it, rather than put up a fight and be her own person. Emma’s life has been spent working with and for her mother, and caring for her younger brothers.
Now with her father away at war, the demands on Emma are stronger. She longs to have a close friend and dreams of a man that would adore her, and change her life with his love and attention.
When a good looking American comes along she allows her daydreams to take over, but soon enough he is gone from her life. That is until she is sent to Townsville to help with the war effort and it’s there that her path crosses again with Frank, the handsome foreigner.
Sometimes the things we think we want are not what we really need in our lives. Other times the things we want we will get in time.
Emma’s life changes and she has to grow up very quickly, but through her struggles, she finds strength, true love, and strong friendship.
Daughter of the Home Front will take you through a range of emotions. I especially admire Emma and the other girls that she spent time with when she was sent to Brisbane. Their strength, love, and care for each other along with their desire to make things better for women in the future was inspiring.
