The beautifully compelling wartime story of freedom and love set deep in the Scottish islands ‘A powerful Second World War love story’ THE TIMES ‘Deeply evocative of Orkney and its wild beauty. A stunning tale of sisters, salvation and sacrifice’ EMMA STONEX _________ Orkney, 1941. Five hundred Italian prisoners of war arrive to fortify these wild and desolate islands. Orphaned sisters Dorothy and Constance volunteer to nurse the wounded. But while beautiful, damaged Constance remains wary of the men, Dot finds herself increasingly drawn to Cesare, a young man fighting on the wrong side and broken by the horrors of battle. Secretly, passionately, they fall in love. When a tragic mistake from Con’s past returns to haunt them, Dot must make a choice: Protect her sister no matter the costs, or save the man who has captured her heart? _________ Praise for Caroline Lea: ‘Enthralling’ Stacey Halls, author of The Familiars and The Foundling ‘Fantastic’ The Times ‘Memorable and compelling’ Sarah Moss, author of The Times Book of the Year Ghost Wall ‘Intensely written and atmospheric’ Daily Mail ‘Gripped me in a cold fist. Beautiful’ Sara Collins, author of The Confessions of Frannie Langton ‘Brilliant’ Daily Express show more
