Love or Duty by Roberta Grieve
Set just before and during the Second World War this book conveys the way in which various people viewed what was happening. The atmosphere in a seaside town during the war is particularly poignant dealing as it does with the way in which the local community came to together to help the injured and the evacuated children.
Woven in with this is the story of a young woman torn between duty to her family and the desire to get away and live a life of her own. Duty wins despite her falling in love with someone she doesn't know loves her and being manipulated into a loveless marriage. As with all good romances it ends well.
Available on Kindle.
