From the New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan's Tale comes an intoxicating novel of love and redemption during a time of war. Summer 1941. Young Adelia Montforte flees fascist Italy for America, where she is whisked away to the shore by her well-meaning aunt and uncle. Here, she meets and falls for Charlie Connally, the eldest of the four Irish-Catholic boys next door. But all hopes for a future together are soon throttled by the war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home. Grief-stricken, Addie flees -- first to Washington and then to war-torn London -- and finds a position at a prestigious newspaper, as well as a chance to redeem lost time, lost family ... and lost love. But the past always nips at her heels, demanding to be reckoned with. And in a final, fateful choice, Addie discovers that the way home may be a path she never suspected. Originally published in 2015.
