By the bestselling author of The Tailor's Girl.
'Love comes out of nowhere for most of us, when we least expect it.'
Amidst the carnage of Gallipoli, British nurse Claire Nightingale falls in love with Australian Light Horseman Jamie Wren. Their flame burns bright, even when war tears them apart.
Come peacetime, Claire's desperate search to find Jamie takes her all the way to Istanbul, and deep into the heart of a Turkish family. Cultures come together, enemies embrace and forbidden passions helplessly ignite.
A breathtaking novel of heartbreak and heroism, love and longing by a powerhouse Australian storyteller.
