Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
It's 1979 and the world is at war, pulling the North American colonies held by Britain and France into the conflict. When captured French officers are brought to Long Island to be billeted in private homes, it upends the lives of the Wilde family, deeply fractured by war. Lydia Wilde, struggling to keep the peace in her family, has little time or kindness to spare for her unwanted guests. Jean-Philippe de Sabran - a French Canadian lieutenant - has little desire to be held there. But by war's end, they'll both learn love, honour, and duty can form tangled bonds that aren't easily broken. Their doomed romance becomes a local legend, told and retold through the years until the present day, when conflict of a different kind brings Charley Van Hock to Long Island as curator of the Wilde House Museum. Charley doesn't believe in ghosts. But as she delves into the history of Lydia and her French officer, it becomes clear that the Wilde House holds more than just secrets, and Charley discovers the legend might not tell the whole story... or the whole truth.
