Sequel to the international bestseller, THE FLOWERS OF THE FIELD, this is an epic novel set amid the turbulence of the Second World War.'This is the second in the trilogy and, like the first, I cannot put it down. Sarah Harrison is such a good writer' Amazon reviewer, 5 stars
Kate Kingsley remembers little of her early childhood, other than the devastation of being torn away from everything she knew in France and sent to live as the adopted daughter of Jack and Thea in Kenya.
Now 20, she leaves for a new life in London. But this is 1936 - a time of decadence, but also turmoil.
Kate finds an unexpected ally in her Aunt Dulcie, whose own life is anything but straightforward. When Kate falls in love she believes she has found a soul mate. But this is just the start of a journey during which Kate confronts personal danger, faces conflicting loyalties, and must make a heart-breaking choice.
