The Girl with a Secret

Kate Hewitt

Rosa’s blood runs cold. He hasn’t seen her yet, but she would recognize those blue eyes anywhere. Will he reveal her secret? And if he does, how will she ever survive?

Germany, 1939: When Rosa Herzelfeld boards the SS St Louis, she doesn’t believe its promise of freedom. Surely there can be no escape from the Nazis, not even on the other side of the world. Besides, she knows that no matter how far she travels, there is no escaping her past…

When the ship is refused entry to Cuba, Rosa finds herself penniless and alone in England. Desperately trying to make this strange country home, the last thing she expects is to fall in love. But when she meets fellow refugee Peter, she is surprised by how quickly his gentle smile and warm brown eyes help her forget the horrors she left behind.

As their love starts to blossom, Rosa grows fearful. She has a terrible secret from her past that she swore she’d never share with anyone. But what if Peter finds out? Deep down, she begins to realise that she must tell him the truth if she wants him in her life forever…

But before she can, Rosa is sent to a remote internment camp on the Isle of Man. And when fate finally reunites her with Peter, her past is threatening to catch up with her. With time running out before her secret is revealed, Rosa must face her past for the man she loves…

This second book in the Emerald Sisters series tells a heartbreaking and unforgettable story about hope, second chances and the resilience of the human spirit. Perfect for fans of The Orphan Sisters and My Name is Eva.
