After his years in America, Mark returns to New Zealand. There he finds a son he cannot understand… and the beginning of a new romance.
Meanwhile, back in England, Ted and Tina’s children are growing up, doomed to be drawn into the Great War, where Frank will be scarred forever by one terrible day in the trenches. Tina and Ted have their own share of family tragedy too.
Louis, the charming optimist, returns unscathed from the war to find that his wife and mistress have met up and that his misdemeanours are inexorably catching up with him.

This is s heart warming but at the same time heart breaking story. Once again through fiction you learn about the effects of a terrible war. So much sorrow in one family but with happy endings too. You laugh and cry as the story unfolds. I loved the characters in this book. The Author, Katie Flynn – what a great storyteller. Her books are never a disappointment. I found this one very hard to put down. Well done!
