Waterstones Says

Beautifully crafted with characters so real they leap off the page, Nicholls’s period novel about forbidden love and the cruelty of tradition is destined to become a true festive favourite.

'Bittersweet perfection' Guardian, Best Books of the Year 'An engulfing historical novel' The Times, Best Books of the Year 'A festive classic in the making' Observer, Best Books of the Year Nominated for the Carnegie Medal Three years ago, Margot's life was turned upside down when her fiance, Harry, went missing in action on the Western Front. Worse, she was left with a devastating secret which threatened to ruin her life and destroy the reputation of her family. As a respectable vicar's daughter, Margot has had to guard that secret with great care ever since, no matter how much pain it causes her. Now it's Christmas 1919, and Margot's family is gathering back home in the vicarage for the first time since the end of the Great War. And miraculously Harry has returned, hoping to see Margot and rekindle their romance. Can Margot ever reveal the shocking truth to the only man she has ever loved?
