Susan was always a bit of a nomad. From reporting an attempted coup in Seychelles, via hand-feeding rhinos in Tanzania, she has now landed in Orkney.
Unaccountably drawn to the islands to the bemusement of friends, she learns about milling and becomes immersed in the landscape and the people. Will she settle? Will this be "home"? And what is home anyway?
September 1944 and the war in Europe is stuttering on. In Holland, famine, the "Hongerwinter", is beginning. Wren 94167, Mary Walker, is posted to Scapa Flow, Orkney, where there is bacon and eggs a-plenty. One of about 40,000 service people stationed there, she is a wireless telegraphist and enjoys a busy social life. However, she still finds time to write home and tell them about it.
"In spite of it being so lonely and isolated and far from home, I think it will be good fun."
