hope (adorkable-8) | 6 comments Hi - the book I'm looking for is something I read within the last 2-3 years

It is a dual timeline historical fiction romance

First story involves WW I

It starts with the story of a German married woman who has been sent to a hospital because she is suffering from postpartum depression where she meets an allied solider who is bald and has red hair tufts.

The married woman has a son and her husband is from German military family.

At the hospital, the woman and allied solider fall in love and but then they go back to their respective lives.

When the married woman goes back, her husband has been having affair with the nanny. They make a compromise that the husband will continue to have relations with the nanny and the wife will live separately but still hold the title of wife.

The nanny gives birth to two girls.

German husband dies and the wife and nanny live with the children as one family.

Allied solider comes into their lives and wife marries him and keeps her son. But the the wife's ex sister-in-law persuades nanny to leave with the two girls.


The German woman and allied solider have a family and she suffers from bouts of postpartum depression. Her son from first marriage goes to war on Germany's side. Her other children stay with her - their one son has red hair.

Her allied solider husband is killed in war and the household makes it seems the wife drowned herself when in fact she is alive and well and instead sent to a psych hospital for her postpartum.

Her children are sent away - the red hair son grows up and becomes an secret agent/officer.


The other story revolves around the red hair son and a woman he meets on the train. He saves her from a passenger trying to force himself on her. They fall in love....don't remember the story but I remember he gets held captive in a POW camp.

His love finds a way to release him while finding his real mother and two sisters (the characters from the first story)

I really really hope you can help me find this book - I've been searching non stop.

Thanks for any help!
Happy Reading!
