From the New York Times bestselling author comes the story of two women, two wars, and a secret diary full of heartbreak, despair—and hope. Perfect for fans of The Secret Wife, The Nightingale and Pam Jenoff.
1918: As victory bells sound across London, Rose Barker welcomes her darling husband Alfie home. But, injured by a shell in the final days of the war, Alfie struggles with terrifying nightmares, and though Rose desperately tries to comfort him, nothing she does seems to help.
2014: Years later, Rose’s great-granddaughter Jess returns from Afghanistan, where she served as a front-line medic. Constantly reminded of those she could not save, Jess’s relationship is crumbling, and her life is falling apart.
But just as Jess is at her lowest, she receives an unexpected gift: the diaries of her great-grandmother Rose. And as she turns the pages, Jess discovers a story of enduring love—and hope—which will change her life forever.
