A heartbreaking story of love, loss and survival from the multi-million copy bestselling author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Returning from life as a fighter pilot in the First World War, Daniel is struggling to put the trauma of the Western Front behind him.

As the 1920s dawn, he and his wife Rosie move to a tea plantation in Ceylon with their small daughter to make a fresh start. Yet navigating their new world could test their marriage to its limits.

Back in England, Rosie's sisters are dealing with impossible challenges in their searches for family, purpose and happiness. These are precarious times, and taking unconventional means may be the only way to get what they want. Around them the world changes, and events in Germany take a dark and forbidding turn. And soon there is no going back...
