Description

Summer 1941 

Young Adelia Montforte flees fascist Italy for America, where she is whisked away to the shore by her well-meaning aunt and uncle. Here, she meets and falls for Charlie Connally, the eldest of the four Irish-Catholic boys next door. But all hopes for a future together are soon throttled by the war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home. 

Grief-stricken, Addie flees—first to Washington and then to war-torn —and finds a position at a prestigious newspaper, as well as a chance to redeem lost time, lost family...and lost love. But the past always nips at her heels, demanding to be reckoned with. And in a final, fateful choice, Addie discovers that the way home may be a path she never suspected.

A HarperAudio production.

    Loved it, like all of her books! Top notch. Was sad to be done.

    Loved this book. The ending turned out to be a a surprise. I wish the writer had given me more of the story. I would have liked to know what happens after in their lives. That is a compliment.

    When I finish reading a book and I’m sad it’s ended, that to me means it was a good book. Left me wanting more. This book, however, had me wishing it was over, long before it finally ended. Too many plot changes as if the author couldn’t decide the best way to go. Not a fan.
