Publisher's Summary

When Lady Helen Hardingham’s parents say she will never find a better husband than Richard, she agrees to marry him. But all too soon Richard returns to war, and Helen begins to wonder just who she has married. Then she meets Oliver Donovan. As the war continues, Oliver has to return to his regiment - and is never seen again. But Helen is left with more than just her memories: she is with child.
Twenty years later and a second war is ravaging Europe. Now a grown woman, Helen’s daughter, Laura, is also caught in a tragic love affair and left expecting a baby. Gradually the truth about her parentage comes out, old wounds are healed, and, with Helen’s support, Laura learns to fall in love again.

Nice mix of romance and history

At first I thought the book was going to be predictable but as I listened on I saw the twist and turns as the plot grew. I thought the author did a wonderful job of showing what it was like
to have lived in London during WWII. The narrator
was easily understood with her British accents.
