The SUNDAY TIMES bestselling Christmas saga. The perfect read for the cold winter nights!


1941, Isle of Dogs. The little community on Slater Street has fought valiantly to keep their spirits up through the long nights of the Blitz. Though her husband Alan has been called up to serve his country, Kay Lewis is determined to give their young son Alfie as merry a Christmas as any other. But when a strange woman arrives on her doorstep, Kay's world is shaken to the core . . .

When the woman claims that Alan has been leading a double life, Kay begins to wonder whether she ever knew her husband at all. Then disaster strikes as Alan is reported missing in action. With no way of discovering the truth, Kay will have some difficult decisions to make if she is to protect her family and keep her faith in the man she thought she knew.
