Synopsis

September 1940, and in the skies above the Weald of Kent the Battle of Britain rages. On a moonlit night on the grounds of Millderhurst Castle, twelve-year-old Queenie sits high in the branches of an oak tree waiting impatiently for the dog-fighting to begin. The unimaginable happens—an enemy plane crashes in the wood where she’s perched. The family takes in the injured pilot, expecting him to die that very night. But he recovers and his life will forever alter the family’s destiny.

?

September 1959, Queenie is now a successful playwright in London. She receives word that her father is dying and she heads home for the first time in nearly twenty years. Memories wait around every corner, including an unspeakable death and a heartbreaking disappearance.

Morton once again enthralls readers with a richly atmospheric story featuring characters beset by love and circumstance and haunted by memory.
