From the author of Secrets of Nanreath Hall comes
this gripping, beautifully written historical fiction novel
set during World War II—the unforgettable story of a young
woman who must leave Singapore and forge a new life in England.
On the eve of Pearl Harbor, impetuous and overindulged, Lucy
Stanhope, the granddaughter of an earl, is living a life of
pampered luxury in Singapore until one reckless act will
change her life forever.
Exiled to England to stay with an aunt she barely remembers,
Lucy never dreamed that she would be one of the last people
to escape Singapore before war engulfs the entire island,
and that her parents would disappear in the devastating
aftermath. Now grief stricken and all alone, she must cope
with the realities of a grim, battle-weary England.
Then she meets Bill, a young evacuee sent to the country to
escape the Blitz, and in a moment of weakness, Lucy agrees
to help him find his mother in London. The unlikely runaways
take off on a seemingly simple journey across the country,
but her world becomes even more complicated when she is
reunited with an invalided soldier she knew in Singapore.
Now Lucy will be forced to finally confront the choices she
has made if she ever hopes to have the future she yearns for.
