Not In Our Stars

By Amy Myers

Love is a battlefield…

The Muckle family were born and bred in Kent, with their father being the village stationmaster.

One of the Muckle’s many children, Daffodil, forms an innocent friendship with Gabriel Scott-Ingles, a boy from a considerably wealthier family, who live at Hurst Hall.

Determined not to be left behind, Daffodil’s manipulative sister, Bryony, has seduced Gabriel’s older brother, Benedict, into falling in love with her.

Both relationships seem untouchable, until Mr Scott-Ingles, an incredibly ostentatious man, hears of their romances.

He refuses to see past the level of ‘class’ that the Muckles are considered to be in the village, and forbids both sons from seeing any of the Muckle children.

Yet his stern words do nothing to sway his lovestruck sons.

However, whilst an ironic and shocking circumstance causes Benedict and Bryony to finally part ways, Daffodil and Gabriel swear that no force will break them apart.

But with war on the horizon, everyone’s future is left uncertain.

Relationships are put on hold whilst every man and woman fights for Britain’s survival, and Daffodil begins to wonder whether she has any hope of a future with Gabriel.

Can these gaps be mended once peace is restored, or will the horrors of war taint everything beyond recognition…?
