What if following your heart takes you somewhere you just cannot bear to go? You must choose how you live your life. And as you are my son, William, I tell you that you, and you alone, must do the choosing. Like everyone, Meg has made choices over the course of her life; for the most part, she is proud of the decisions she made, but that does not mean she is not without regrets, not haunted by questions of what might have been -- What if her older brother had not gone missing when she was just a child? What if she had married for love, rather than duty? What if she told her son why it matters so much that he, unlike her, listens to his heart? Set in England and Africa, and opening during World War Two, this is a novel about family, about love, about duty; it is about the people we miss and the secrets we keep. Above all though, it is about the choices we make -- and those we do not make.
