Publisher's Synopsis

'Based on a true story this gorgeous sweeping romance crossing time and continents is completely captivating as Florence epitomises the enduring power of love' My Weekly

'Fascinating, compelling and a searingly romantic roller coaster ride' Daily Mirror

Rupert promised he was going to come back. All Florence had to do was wait.

Cornwall, 1944
When Rupert Dash is declared missing, presumed dead during the Battle of Arnhem, his wife, Florence, is devastated. She can't accept that he has gone from her life forever, and so when she finds a poem called 'Wait for Me' hidden in an old book, she believes it's a sign from her husband. A promise that he will return to her.

London, 1988
Since childhood Max has suffered from a recurring nightmare. Surrounded by the horrific chaos of war, he has an urgent mission he knows he must complete. But time after time, the dream ends with him awaking in terror, his heart pounding from the horror of the battlefield. Desperate to understand why he is haunted by such terrible visions, Max embarks on a journey that leads him to Cornwall and a man named Rupert Dash.

Melbourne, 1995
Florence receives a letter from someone she has never met, who lives on the other side of the world. This stranger says he remembers a life that belonged to another before him. Could this be the one person Florence has waited fifty-one years to meet again?

The emotional new novel of enduring love and devastating secrets, sweeping from England during the Second World War to Australia five decades later, from the bestselling author of An Italian Girl in Brooklyn
