Publisher's Summary

An enthralling story of a woman in search of the truth, the man she falls in love with and the devastation of the Second World War.

1934, Guyana. All her life, Mary Grace has wanted to know the truth about who her parents really are. As the mixed-race daughter of two white plantation owners, her childhood has been clouded by whispered rumours, and the circumstances of her birth have been kept a closely guarded secret.

Aunt Winnie is the only person Mary Grace can confide in. Feeling lost and lonely, her place in society uncertain, Mary Grace decides to forge her own path in the world. And she finds herself unexpectedly falling for charming and affluent Jock Campbell, a planter with revolutionary ideas.

But with the onset of the Second World War, their lives will be changed forever. And Mary Grace and Jock will be faced with the hardest decision of all - to fight for freedom or to follow their hearts....

An utterly compelling and evocative story about the heart-breaking choices men and women had to make during a time of unimaginable change. Perfect for fans of Kate Morton, Dinah Jefferies and Kate Furnivall.

Good but rushed ending

I really enjoyed the book until the last 2 hours. I like sad books best so I'm fine with unhappy endings so my opinion isn't based in the ending so much as the progression to the ending. The authors notes lets us know this book was historical fiction and it felt important to the author but only really shows in the last hour of the book which then also rushes through many years abruptly.

A fascinating , beautifully read book

This had so many historically interesting facts about this country.
I loved the warm hearted and wise aunt Winifred who so often just spoke from the heart
And held her delightful family together .
