1943, in the ruins of Blitzed London…
Stella Thorne and Dan Rosinski meet by chance and fall in love by accident. Theirs is a reluctant, unstoppable affair in which all the odds are stacked against them: she is newly married, and he is an American bomber pilot whose chance of survival is just one in five…
He promised to love her forever
Sixty years later Dan makes one final attempt to find the girl he has never forgotten, and sends a letter to the house where they shared a brief yet perfect happiness. But Stella has gone, and the letter is opened by Jess, a young girl hiding from problems of her own. And as Jess reads Dan’s words, she is captivated by the story of a love affair that burned so bright and dimmed too soon. Can she help Dan find Stella before it is too late?
Now forever is finally running out.
A huge huge thank you to Simon & Schuster for sending me this book to review .It is absolutely beautiful and incredible an I have had huge bags under my eyes as a result of reading this in one night.I literally could not stop reading.
This is written in a way that hooks you and transports you not only into the pages but into the era where half the book is set.I have a love for the second world war era and always have however some books can be hard to connect with .I was so attached to Stella its unreal and I smiled ,gasped and cried reading her story .
I adored the letters and the storyline is such a original clever one that this will be flying off the shelves when its released .
I feel honoured to have had the oppournity to have read it so early .
I could feel the pain and love these characters experienced .
Just a breath-taking work of literature that reminds you that romance does exist !
This is released 23rd April and I wish Iona every success with this book .
