From the bestselling author of The Secrets of Midwives

'A poignant love story' West Australian


Anna Forster knows that her twin brother has sent her to Rosalind House because another young resident, Luke lives there. As if, Anna muses, a little companionship will soften the unfairness of her fate.
Eve Bennett also comes to Rosalind House reluctantly. Once a pampered wife, she is now cooking and cleaning to make ends meet.
Both women are facing futures they didn't expect. With only unreliable memories to guide them, they have no choice but to trust something more powerful. Something closer to the heart.
