'A great read about guilt, atonement and identity' - Hello

From the author of NETFLIX SENSATION ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL
1939, Will and Alice are evacuated to a granite farm in north Cornwall, perched on a windswept cliff. There they meet the farmer's daughter, Maggie, and enjoy a childhood largely protected from the ravages of war.
But in the sweltering summer of 1943 something happens that will have tragic consequences. A small lie escalates out of all proportion. Over 70 years on Alice is determined to make amends - but has she left it too late?
2014, and Maggie's granddaughter Lucy flees to the childhood home she couldn't wait to leave, marriage over; career ending thanks to one terrible mistake. Can she rebuild herself? And can she help her grandmother, plagued by a secret, to find some lasting peace?
