Love, war, and haunting memories
Working with an antiques dealer to clear out an estate, Cara Hargraves pries open an old tin that holds a World War II-era diary and a photo of a young woman in uniform. Cara digs into the soldier’s haunting, unfinished diary, but she may not be ready for the reality of wartime London.
In 1941, 19-year-old Louise Keene waits in her Cornish village until her wealthy suitor returns from war. But it all changes when she meets dashing RAF pilot Paul Bolton.
Desperate for a larger life, Louise joins the British Army as a Gunner Girl. As bombs fall on London, all that gets her through the nights is knowing she and Paul will be together at war’s end. But when her letters are returned unanswered, she learns the dark side of wartime romance.
“Kelly deftly balances intrigue with mystery and historical detail.… A charming imagining of the historical gunner girls.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Kelly weaves an intricate, tender, and convincing tale of war and romance with skill and suspense.”—Publishers Weekly
