The novel opens with a family secret. Now, at the end of her mother's life, Laurel needs to discover the truth about something she witness her mother do. Weaving the past with the present, Morton slowly reveals the events that forever changed the lives of two girls during the London Blitz.
As each chapter revealed new clues, I would revise my idea of what actually happened and why. But still, I was not prepared for the twist in the end! An exciting read, Morton has you rooting for the central characters, despite their foolish mistakes and wild ideas, and really hoping that everyone gets their second chance at love, life and happiness.
