It is 1916 and the dark days of World War One drag on. Both Jim and Wally are returning to the Front line when Norah discovers she has been left a legacy—a large house complete with stables and its own farm in the Surrey countryside. Her initial reaction of dismay soon changes when Norah realises that she can help the war effort, and together with her father, they turn “Homewood” into a house for wounded and exhausted civilians. When a telegram arrives with the worst news of all, Norah and her father somehow manage to keep going—until the day that brings a miracle into their lives.—Goodreads.com.

Author Bio for Bruce, Mary Grant
Mary Grant Bruce (May 24, 1878—July 2, 1958) also known as Minnie Bruce, was an Australian children's author and journalist.
Although she wrote many books, her most famous were the Billabong series, begun when she was writing weekly stories for the children's pages of the Leader, where A Little Bush Maid first appeared in serial form. The story proved so successful that the Linton family was launched.
Although much of her work was written in England, Mary Grant Bruce's patriotism is more Australian than British. The Lintons' world, threatened from outside, withstood challenge, unchanged and untarnished. Australians, and not only children, looking at Billabong, could see themselves as they wanted to be—mates in fortune and adversity, sturdy, decent and fearless inheritors of a tough, but rewarding land.
