From the bestselling author of
The Girl From the
Train, comes another compelling coming
of age story of delayed love, loss, and reconciliation in
WWII-era South Africa.
Lettie has always felt different from and overshadowed by
the women around her– this friend is richer, that friend is
more beautiful, those friends are closer. Still, she doesn’t
let this hold her back. She works hard to apply her mind,
trying to compensate for her perceived lack of beauty with
diligent academic work and a successful career as a doctor.
She learns to treasure her friendships, but she still
wonders if any man will ever return her interest.
Marco’s experience in the second world war have robbed him
of love and health. When winters in his native Italy prove
dangerous to his health even after the war has ended, he
moves to South Africa to be with his brother, husband to one
of Lettie’s best friends. Marco is Lettie’s first patient,
and their relationship grows as she aids him on the road
back to restored health.
In the company of beloved characters from The Child of
the River, Marco and Lettie find a happiness that
neither of them thought possible. With that joy comes pain
and loss, but Lettie learns that life—while perhaps a
crooked path—is always a journey worth taking.
