Summary

Lose yourself in a sweeping love story this summer - perfect for fans of Dinah Jeffries and Santa Montefiore.

Northern France, 1917.

Virginia Fortescue has thrown convention and her respected upbringing to the wind to drive ambulances for the American Red Cross across Northern France. Grinding through the mud and the trenches to bring injured and dying men back from the front, the last thing she expects to find is a handsome English doctor who won't let her go - in spite of a wife waiting for him at home in Cornwall.

Florida, 1922.

In the humid heat of Florida, Virginia Fitzwilliam must tackle the estate of her late estranged husband. After the plantation house burned to the ground with Simon Fitzwilliam inside, the shipping business he built from scratch has foundered, and the mangroves have started to take back the land. The more Virginia learns about Simon and the secrets of his life, the more she fears that the dangers surrounding Simon now threaten her as well....

Disappointed

I was looking forward to this but was disappointed with the story. It seemed very disjointed and the female narrator didn't seem to fit either. I thought the male narrator was good I've heard him on another story.
