About the Book

With the world torn apart by war, can Louisa and her hotel survive the devastation?

London, 1911

As England mourns the death of King Edward VII, Louisa Trotter looks back fondly on memories of the departed sovereign, her first lover and benefactor.

Now the owner of a successful, quirky hotel, the Bentinck, she enjoys life and champagne in equal measure, and rarely looks back on the past. With the Bentinck thriving and the one love of her life — Lord Charles Haslemere — now married to someone else and settled miles away, she hasn’t time for regrets.

But the spectre of war is drawing ever nearer, and the coming years will test her resilience as never before…

When an unexpected tragedy leads to Charlie reappearing in Louisa’s life, old feelings begin to return … but the war turns personal for the indomitable hotelier when her lover decides to enlist. And with London being ravaged by bombing raids, the strain begins to take its toll.

Deciding to throw herself into the war effort while she waits for Charlie, for a while Louisa finds a new purpose in life. And, unbeknown to everyone around her, she has an added reason for looking to the future…

But after the last shot is fired, will Charlie finally come marching home to Louisa? And will he ever shake off the spectre of battle if he does?

In a world that will never be the same again, can the two of them find the strength to rebuild their shattered lives?
