Received this book at Christmas. Wasn't sure of it from the front cover but the description got me wanting to read and glad that I did. It starts in 1920 but I'll not go into detail as it may spoil the story for others. Will definitely add other books by the author to my reading list. Would recommend.

It’s Christmas Eve 1920 when nine-year-old Abby Kirby’s family is ripped apart by a terrible tragedy. Leaving everything she’s ever known, Abby takes her younger brother and runs away to the tough existence of the Border farming community.

Years pass. Abby becomes a beautiful young woman and falls in love, but her past haunts her, casting dark shadows. Furthermore, in the very place she’s taken refuge is someone who wishes her harm.

With her heart broken, Abby decides to make a new life as a nurse. When the Second World War breaks out, she volunteers as a QA nurse and is sent overseas. However, life takes another unexpected and dangerous turn when she becomes a prisoner of the Japanese. It is then that Abby realises that whatever has gone before is nothing compared to what lies ahead…
