I decided to request this one when I saw the author tweeting about the forthcoming publication date on Twitter - and I'm so glad I did!

Rose meets William when the GIs are posted to England during WWII. Rose falls deeply in love but she knows her family would not approve due to his heritage, and William feels exactly the same way about Rose. But war is a cruel master and they are separated before Rose can manage to share her secret with her beau. And the consequences are far reaching . . .

This book was amazing. The cover indicates its just another Wartime saga, and whilst it is a great cover, the story goes deeper, so much deeper. Dealing with issues of racism in the 1940s and 1950s, it truly is a heartbreaking tale. When a writer can reduce you to tears with a simple line it is an amazing craft and Lola Jaye did this again (she did it with one of her other books too) . It had me in tears on more than one occasion. A truly amazing tale.

Rose meets GI William during WWII. Unknown to William, Rose is already married, although she is extremely unhappy in her marriage.
Their meeting and subsequent affair has disastrous results for Rose!
A beautiful story which deals with the harsh reality of racism during that time!
I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it. Thanks to netgalley and bookouture for allowing me to read the arc.
