“Sometimes the truth is not ‘stranger than fiction’ but more compelling than fiction, and that’s the case here…. Well written and captivating, its story will stay with readers well after the book is finished.”
Library Journal, STARRED Review
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.
