Lorna Cook, author of the international bestsellers "The Lost Village" and "The Forbidden Promise", is back with a new and captivating novel about four strong women. At the moment of truth, one of them will risk everything. Was it the right choice?
The year is 1940. Two young sisters, Presi and Dido, accompany the beloved artist on her last journey. Now they are alone, in the midst of World War II, on the island of Guernsey, near France. Soon the Nazis invade the island, and the two fight the occupation as best they can. When they are required to host a German soldier in their pavilion, they are amazed. They know this soldier: he is a childhood friend of both of them, who suddenly became a bitter enemy.
The year is 2016. Two sisters, Lucy and Clara, receive a surprising inheritance from a close relative: a beautiful old house on the island of Guernsey. As Lucy prepares the house for sale, she discovers a hidden box containing notes and photos. Little by little, with great patience, Lucy will discover the details of the story about the forgotten nurse who lived there during the war, disappeared in the dead of night and has not been seen since.
The writer Lorna Cook is amazing to tell a story that has heart and emotion, compassion and human love. The girl from the island became a world bestseller and won - like the rest of Cook's books - the love of readers.
