Product Description:

Photographer Lucy Cardwell has recently lost her troubled father Tom. While sifting through his papers she finds he'd been researching an uncle she never knew he'd had. Intrigued she visits her father's childhood home the once beautiful Carlyon Manor. She meets an old woman named Beatrice who has an extraordinary story to tell ...Growing up in the 1930s Beatrice plays with the children of Carlyon Manor - especially pretty blonde Angelina Wincanton Lucy's grandmother. Then one summer at the age of fifteen she falls in love with a young visitor to the town: Rafe Ashton whom she rescues from a storm-tossed sea. But the dark clouds of war are gathering and Beatrice Rafe and the Wincantons will all be swept up in the cataclysm of events that follow. Beatrice's story is a powerful tale of courage and betrayal spanning from Cornwall to London and Occupied France in which friendship and love are tested and the ramifications reach down the generations. And as Lucy listens to the tales of the past she learns a secret that will change everything she has ever known...
