Forced apart by the onset of World War II, a pair of young lovers struggles to survive and reunite in this "engrossing and satisfying" historical romance (Booklist). August, 1939. When it becomes clear that war is about to break out with Germany, seventeen-year-old twin sisters Dilys and Una Singleby are forced to leave their studies in Munich and return home to England. Heartbroken at being separated, Dilys and her Norwegian boyfriend, Kristoffer, vow to be reunited as soon as it's possible. As the months pass, a series of misunderstandings and misguided actions keep the lovers apart. When she discovers she's pregnant, Dilys, unable to contact Kristoffer, is driven to desperate measures to ensure that she can keep her baby and avoid bringing disgrace to her family. Kristoffer meanwhile joins the Resistance and faces dangerous times ahead. It seems as though the pair is destined never to meet again . . . but will true love find a way? "Lorrimer knits a smoothly written . . . Tale that balances 'five years of bitter war' with unstoppable love." -Booklist
