In the early days of World War II, when a Nazi prison leaves Major William Morgan with nothing to live for, nurse Olivia Talbot is determined to mend his heart, even if it means losing her own.
Just weeks after the Nazis begin their brutal air attack on London, twenty-one-year-old nurse Olivia Talbot is sent to Cornwall to care for the blind and embittered Major William Morgan, a former prisoner of war.
Major Morgan challenges Olivia’s innate bedside manner with harsh words and ingratitude, but she persists. Her tenacity and courage force him to reckon with his demons and awakens his will to live. Against the backdrop of peaceful Keldor, the major’s estate, a budding friendship blossoms into an unexpected romance.
Now, as war ramps up across Europe, harsh realities intrude. An unwelcome guest visits Keldor, reviving William’s inner soldier. Olivia is caught in an air raid, causing William to act on a decision that changes their future forever.
When war comes close to taking everything Olivia holds dear—including her belief that she’ll see William again—can she resurrect the strength she is known for and soldier on without him?
