Publisher's Summary

Summer 1941

Young Adelia Monteforte flees fascist Italy for America, where she is whisked away to the shore by her well-meaning aunt and uncle. Here she meets and falls for Charlie Connally, the eldest of the four Irish-Catholic boys next door. But all hopes for a future together are soon throttled by the war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home.

Grief-stricken, Addie flees - first to Washington and then to war-torn London - and finds a position at a prestigious newspaper as well as a chance to redeem lost time, lost family...and lost love. But the past always nips at her heels, demanding to be reckoned with. And in a final, fateful choice, Addie discovers that the way home may be a path she never suspected.

Any additional comments?

This book did nothing for me. If you like romance novels where the heroine is constantly mooning over the wrong guy--then enjoy. Otherwise, find something more compelling to read.

Not very good

I was expecting a WWII story with some insight, but this is just a silly romance, and not a very well-written one. One dimensional characters, melodramatic plot, not much to like.
