The acclaimed author of Letters from Skye returns with an extraordinary story of a friendship born of proximity but boundless in the face of separation and war. Luc Crépet is accustomed to his mother bringing wounded creatures to their idyllic château in the French countryside. Yet his maman's newest project is the most surprising: Clare Ross, a fifteen-year-old Scottish girl who inspires Luc in ways he never thought possible. Then, just as suddenly as Clare arrives, she is gone, whisked away by her grandfather to the farthest reaches of the globe. When she returns years later, World War I is raging. Will Luc and Clare, both altered by the conflict and the many years apart, be able to find each other and recapture what was lost? --Publisher
