A sweeping World War II saga of thwarted love, murder, and a long-lost painting. In the summer of 1942, twenty-one-year-old Anne Calloway sets off to serve in the Army Nurse Corps on the Pacific island of Bora-Bora. Exhilarated by the adventure of a lifetime she is drawn to a mysterious soldier named Westry. As their friendship blossoms into hues as deep as the hibiscus flowers native to the island, the two share a private world under the thatched roof of an abandoned beach bungalow making promises about after. But then they witness a gruesome crime, Westry is suddenly redeployed, and the idyll they built together vanishes into the winds of war.
Seventy years later, Anne still cannot let go of that long-ago summer and the twin losses of her life. Is it finally time to uncover the truth or will she continue to be haunted by what she lost?
A timeless story of enduring passion and determination to discover the truth decades later. Perfect for fans of Elin Hilderbrand, Barbara O’Neal and Amanda Prowse.
