May, 1945. When bells ring out for Victory in Europe, young wife and mother Gwen wonders if her world is about to change.

Six years ago, on their wedding night, her husband Jack promised he would leave for the war and never return.

But Jack is coming home, unable to keep the promise he so faithfully made, and full of hope that he may at last win a place in Gwen’s life and her heart.

As events of the past return to haunt them, threatening all they hold dear, Jack and Gwen find themselves facing their greatest battle yet.

To win, they will have to stand together and fight as one.

In this sweeping historical story with huge heart, Anita Frank weaves a glorious tale of love and loss, secrets and promises.
