‘A book full of emotion, secrets, hope and love…Excellent writing and I would definitely recommend to anyone who loves historical fiction’ Lisa

A moving and compelling historical novel about love, second chances and resilience in the darkest of times.

Southampton 1940

Abandoned when she was tiny, Maisie Reynolds was separated from her twin brother and forced to grow up in Holly Bush orphanage – a place where she has never known love or kindness.

But with the world at war and Hitler’s devastating bombs coming ever closer, fate has other plans for Maisie and a secret from her past changes everything.

When she meets handsome Canadian paratrooper, Cam, Maisie learns that love might not be lost to her after all – but not before her past life and D Day bring a tragic twist to her happiness.
