An enthralling true story of star-crossed love, the brutality of war, corrosive family secrets and a young widow’s hard-won journey to finding herself…
It’s 1943 and World War II is raging when 22-year-old Nina Raff learns that her Army pilot husband has been killed in action. To escape her grief, she quits her job, moves across the country, and soon marries a man she hardly knows, unknowingly plunging herself into a psychologically abusive and powerless marriage. Because her husband won’t allow her to mention her first marriage, the past stays buried for the next twenty years… until her teenage daughter finds an unfamiliar picture of her mother as a bride, and a heartrending, amazing story tumbles out. Those who love the romance and high stakes of WWII will eat up this saga of love, loss, family secrets, breaking free and the indelible bonds of true love.
