Publisher's Summary

From the bustling streets of post-Great War London to the idyllic 1920s Sussex countryside, this is a breathtaking story of passion and persistence from a phenomenal Australian storyteller about how true love can overcome incredible odds, even in the most extraordinary circumstances.

A humble soldier, known only as "Jones", wakes in hospital with no recollection of his past. The few fleeting fragments of memory he glimpses are horrifying moments from the battlefield at Ypres. His very identity becomes a puzzle he must solve. Then Eden Valentine comes gliding into his world, a stunning seamstress who has a dream of her own business in high fashion but duty to her family may never permit her to fulfil it while her fiancé resents the intrusion of the disarming Jones in such desperate need of her help to unravel his past.

Surrounding the mystery is Alex Wynter, the influential heir to the Wynter industrial empire and country manor Larksfell Hall. With his aristocratic family still reeling from a recent tragedy, he brings news that will further rock the foundations of their privileged lives.

When their three very different worlds collide, the pieces of the past finally fall into place and lead them into wildly unexpected futures. What they discover will bring shattering consequences that threaten to tear apart far more than just the heart of the tailor's girl.

My Favourite Fiona McIntosh Book So Far

I loved this book. It had me gripped right from the start to finish. I couldn't stop listening to it. I actually feel sad to let the characters go. I wish there were additional books to continue their journey.

I loved this story . I think Madeleine Leslay is amazing . She has a great voice . I really enjoy Fiona McIntosh’s books. Fiona must do a lot of research to make her characters so believable and interesting. This is one of her best .

Fantastic story and great narrator!

I absolutely loved this book and just couldn't put it down. The story opens at the end of WWII in a London hospital for injured servIcemen where preparations are underway to celebrate "peace in our time". However, one of the patients, who has recovered from his physical injuries, is struggling with amnesia. And so begins his story which has so many twists and turns. ...

plagiarism? Random Harvest 1942 J. Hilton

this is an exact copy of Random Harvest 1942 by James Hilton. She changed the ending. Not her own work at all.

Amazing

What a brilliant story I so enjoyed it and almost could feel the pain of Alex Winter on his journey to find his wife Eden again and also to her amazing courage and faith that she would find her Tom again. Brilliantly read to by Madeleine Leslay
