About the Book

Timeless romance from the best-selling author of Tuppence to Cross the Mersey. With over 3 million copies sold around the world, Helen Forrester’s heart-warming and gripping fiction, set in post-war Liverpool and France, continues to move readers.

Set in the aftermath of war, this is a tale of courage and endurance of ordinary people.

A young Liverpool woman is widowed in the Second World War before she can know the happiness of having a family.

On a trip to Normandy, to see the site of the D-Day landings where her husband was killed, she meets an impoverished French poultry farmer. Reduced by the war to driving a beaten-up taxi and caring for his mother and dying brother, his happiness feels out of reach.

Can two people shake off the shadows of the past and build a new life together?
