Publisher's Summary

When Lucy Hunter stumbles upon her grandfather's World War II memorabilia, she finds a faded photograph of a stunning young woman and a series of heartfelt letters. They are clues about the secret years, a period of Lucy's family history that has been kept a mystery...until now.
From the wild beauty of the Australian bush to England's rugged south coast, this is a deeply moving story of heartbreak, heroism and homecoming by a beloved multiaward-winning author.

Loved this, smiled and wept, and smiled

Wonderful interwoven stories, adored the George and Harry parts, was cheering for Lucy and so pleased for Ro. Taken on a gorgeous journey through the Secret Years. Loved it.

A beautiful book!

I can't think of a more beautiful story to be written with its background in Townsville and Western Queensland. These areas are very familiar to me. As an added coincidence my pioneer ancestors (to North Queensland) came from Devon.
I loved this book!
This is my first Barbara Hannah book and can't wait to start another one!
