Chonghaile weaves a complex narrative covering conflict, secrets, judgement and what it takes to sever family ties.
I have a story to tell you, Diane. It is my story and your story and the story of a century that remade the world. When we reach the end, you will be the ultimate arbiter of whether it was worth your time. You will also sit in judgment on me.
In a cottage in Normandy, Lina Rose is writing to the daughter she abandoned as a baby. Now a successful if enigmatic author, she is determined to trace her family’s history through the two world wars that shaped her life. But Lina can no longer bear to carry her secrets alone, and once the truth is out, can she ever be forgiven?'A gorgeous, absorbing tale. The characters' experiences of loss and their stoic sense of survival brought history to life in a way I had never seen it before... a compelling and captivating story, filled with adventure, love and regret' Nicola Cassidy, author of December Girl
