Ah my favourite kind of story that moves back and forth through the past and present time Superbly written In the present day Cara is an antiues dealer who is dealing with an estate of a recently deceased lady She finds an old diary in amongst her things It is a diary written in the WW2 era about a war time romance She is fascinated and begins to try to solve the mystery The story goes back in time as Cara reads the diary entries In the present time Cara is also trying to find out a family secret about her own Grandmother during the second World WarSometimes when I read these past and present stories I enjoy one than the other but in this book I eually enjoyed both stories They were well thought out and told brilliantly little by little until the end and the big reveals I will definitely be reading from this author If you enjoy Wartime romances I highly recommend this one I chose to read this around Remembrance Day I think it added to the nostalgia I really enjoyed itThank you to NetGalley and Simon Schuster Canada for allowing me the opportunity to read this Advanced Reader Copy
