Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking tale of heartbreak and heroism, love and longing by a powerhouse Australian storyteller.

'Love comes out of nowhere for most of us, when we least expect it.'

Amidst the carnage of Gallipoli, British nurse Claire Nightingale meets Australian Light Horseman Jamie Wren. Despite all odds, they fall deeply in love. Their flame burns bright and carries them through their darkest hours, even when war tears them apart.

When Jamie encounters Turkish soldier Açar Shahin on the bloodstained battlefield, the men forge an unforgettable bond. Their chance meeting also leaves a precious clue to Jamie's whereabouts for Claire to follow.

Come peacetime, Claire's desperate search to find Jamie takes her all the way to Istanbul and deep into the heart of Açar's family, where she attracts the unexpected attention of a charismatic and brooding scholar.

In the name of forgiveness, cultures come together, enemies embrace and forbidden passions ignite - but by the nail-biting conclusion, who will be left standing to capture Nurse Nightingale's heart?

Wonderful

Very well researched though my husband pointed out that the jeep she went in wasn’t developed until the 2nd WW! We have thoroughly enjoyed all of Fiona Macintosh’s audio books and they are very well read. We love the mix of history, travel and sensitive approach to relationships.
