Depression Era London and Sydney come to life in this historical novel as young women traveling the world confront secrets that could unravel their lives. London, 1933. Having just graduated from nursing school, Esme Carr and her best friend Minnie are hungry for adventure. They take a cruise to Australia, providing onboard medical assistance in exchange for their passage. Left behind is Esme's adolescent niece, Meggie, who is every bit as independent and full of life as Esme. But there is mystery surrounding Meggie's birth—one she intends to unravel, despite her mother's warnings to leave the past alone. When the truth finally comes out, it upends Meggie's life in ways she never could have expected. And while Minnie needs Esme more than ever, Esme finds herself traversing a rift between mother and daughter even more challenging than the journey between London and Sydney. "A terrific novel." —Historical Novel Society
