Publisher Description

A young girl's search for her identity and for a love that can overcome her past.

Questa Adamson is stranded in Italy for the duration of the Second World War. When she finally returns to England she is haunted by terrible memories. She finds that the safe childhood world she remembers has disappeared and that she is as alone in her home country as she has been in Italy.

She also finds that she has inherited a tumbledown manor house in Shropshire and is determined to restore the estate to its former glory, despite rationing and post-war austerity. And when she meets her mysterious neighbor, Marcus, it seems as if she might, at last, begin to drop her guard and learn to love.

But loving Marcus brings its own special difficulties and Questa soon finds herself faced with an extraordinary and painful choice.

What can I say other than the fact that I truly love this book. I first read it about 15 years ago and have been desperate to revisit it but I had difficulty tracking it down for all sorts of reasons. So much happened to the young main character during the second world war to leave her very scarred psychologically and scared of people, only some of which we find out about but far more is hinted at and is a source of sadness for her. As the story unfolds, one has perhaps to suspend belief but, nonetheless, one can still get lost in the mingling of past and present and the story becomes so, so believable and real. Read it, please, if you enjoy a different kind of love story!
