Summary

August 1937 - Seffy Blake falls in love with Amyas Troy from the moment she sees him on a Cornish beach. But when he disappears, she is forced to face the consequences of their affair alone.

In London Seffy makes a new life for herself working as an assistant to journalist Charlie Bradford, and as Europe hurtles towards war, it is Charlie who sees her through her darkest times.

But when Amyas reappears in her life, Seffy must decide whether to follow her heart or accept her genuine love for Charlie and keep what remains of her family safe from the terrifying consequences of war.

Wonderful story

Well written and narrated. A good read or listen. Maybe a little sentimental and romantic but I liked that. Certainly not too fanciful with lots oh historic and visits to parts of the world
