A story of love and second chances, which ranges from '50s Staffordshire to Paris, and written by a prizewinning romantic writer.
When her beloved grandfather dies in 1958, Polly Merton is forced to share her home with a woman she scarcely knows: the mother who abandoned her.
Sadie Merton, glamorous and selfish, has her own set of morals and Polly is appalled by her scandalous lifestyle. Ashamed and resentful, she takes refuge in her friends and her college studies.
Then Polly's love of France takes her to Paris - and after a chance encounter there, her life will never be the same again . . .
