Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Ireland, 1944. In a violent storm, a German plane heading for Britain is blown west, far off course. The pilot, completely disorientated, plunges down on to an Irish hillside, and shatters a young family.

The children who survive that terrible night try to leave the past behind, but the past will not let them go. Rescued by their Aunt Lucy, Amelia and Mattie need to start afresh, but Lucy too has lost her way. And as all three search for a place to call home, they accidentally uncover the cruellest secrets of all . . .

Mary Stanley's enthralling new novel moves from 1940s Ireland through post-war England to golden Malta. Her vibrant characters and beautifully perceptive writing bring to life a compelling tale of survival, self-discovery, and the desire to belong.
