Summary

The most heartbreaking historical fiction novel you will listen to this year from the USA Today best-selling author! 

A train journey into the past 

A love that echoes through time 

Paddington Station, present day  

A young woman boards the sleeper train to Cornwall with only a beautiful emerald silk evening dress and an old, well-read diary full of sketches. Ellie Nightingale is a shy violinist who plays like her heart is broken. But when she meets fellow passenger Joe, she feels like she has been given that rarest of gifts...a second chance.

Paddington Station, 1944 

Beneath the shadow of the war which rages across Europe, Alex and Eliza meet by chance. She is a gutsy painter desperate to get to the frontline as a war artist, and he is a wounded RAF pilot now commissioned as a war correspondent. With time slipping away, they make only one promise: to meet in Berlin when this is all over. But this is a time when promises are hard to keep, and hope is all you can hold in your heart.

From a hidden Cornish cove to the blood-soaked beaches of Normandy in June 1944, this is an epic love story like no other. Perfect for fans of Pam Jenoff, Kate Quinn, Rachel Hore and Kate Furnivall.

Destiny Beautifully Portrayed

A fantastic listening experience, I’ve been hooked from start to finish. In fact, I listened to the whole book in just two days. Dual narrative, a thread of romance and survival ties the two eras and draws you in. Destiny, innocent attraction, love, union and reunion. Five stars from me.
