A heart-wrenching wartime novel of shame, betrayal, loyalty and love. Previously published as A Fragment of Time.
In England in the 1930s, eighteen-year-old Helen Carstairs braves the prejudice of friends and family to marry Heine, a young German photographer who has fled the growing horror of the Nazis.
But the storm clouds are gathering in Europe. When fighting breaks out Heine is interned, their small son is evacuated and Helen is left to face the Blitz alone.
And the agony of war threatens to divide a family already tormented by conflicting passions of loyalty, shame, betrayal - and love.
