“How the small flame of an undying love can illuminate the darkness of a tragic era. This elegantly told story is for everyone.”
James Carroll, New York Times best-selling author of Jerusalem, Jerusalem and Constantine’s Sword
Separated by war and her family’s disapproval, the young lovers—Janine and Roland—lose each other for fifty years. It is a testimony to both Maitland’s investigative skills and her devotion to her mother that she successfully traced the lost Roland and was able to reunite him with Janine. Unlike so many stories of love during wartime, theirs has a happy ending.
