Can you ever forget your first love?
Donegal, Ireland, 1939
As the world teeters on the brink of WWII, Eliza Lavery is alone in the world after her fiance, Davey, was lost in the Irish Civil War. But a chance meeting on the wild beauty of Ballmastocker Bay could change everything.
Hamilton, Bermuda, 2022
Eight decades later, troubled by her future, Saoirse O'Donnell walks on the pink sands of Bermuda's Horseshoe Bay. When she uncovers a connection to Eliza, all those years before, she hears a story that promises to influence her own heart and her own choice - but also to reveal a long-buried secret.
Two women must each make a choice between their past and their present in this sweeping, epic love story spanning two continents, three generations, and a joy and tragedy over nearly a century.
