From the bestselling author of "Girl with a Pearl Earring" comes an immersive, moving story of a woman crafting her own life at the dawn of the Second World War. After the Great War took both her beloved brother and her fiancé, Violet Speedwell has become a "surplus woman."

But when forces threaten her new independence and another war appears on the horizon, Violet must fight to put down roots in a place where women aren't expected to grow.
