One family. Two stories. Many secrets.
A compelling drama of love, grief, and mystery.
Patrick thought his grandfather, John, died before he was born.
Later in life, he finds out that this was not true. In fact, for the first five years of Patrick's life, he stayed in the same small Scottish village as his grandfather.
Why were they kept apart?
In 1915, with war raging in Europe, John is a young man working on the family farm. Not yet old enough to enlist, but aware of its looming threat, he meets Catherine and his life starts to rip apart.
The two men's stories, told in alternate chapters, combine to form one intricate, thrilling tale.
