But war looms and Luke, like so many, has no choice but to fight.
Maddy’s mother urges her to move on. Yet still she clings to the promise Luke left her with: that the two of them will meet again in Bombay…

Rose Hamilton is in desperate need of a fresh start. There are so many reasons she should ignore the advertisement: the war, those treacherous seas, her family, her fiancé… but she cannot help herself.

But rural Queensland, and the cattle station home of Walter’s parents, is not as either of them were told to expect. Rose cannot leave this little boy she’s grown to love until he is happy, and she knows the key to this is Walter’s wounded fighter pilot uncle Max. But how will she ever part with Walter? And what if he isn’t the only reason she wants to stay?
