It is 1940, and 17-year-old Kate Jamison is making her debut in New York society. Kate has it all. She is stunning, vivacious and intelligent. She is adored and trusted by her parents. But there is something hidden beneath that perfect surface. Joe Allbright is the protege of flying ace Charles Lindbergh and well respected by all that know him. However he is afraid to give himself totally to someone. When these two meet they instantly become unlikely soul mates. Their friendship grows until neither of them can deny that it has developed into love. Joe believes that America will soon join in the European war and is prepared for it when it happens. But it is hard for Kate to be separated from him when he goes to fly in England. This long separation is just the beginning of the troubles in their lives together. They are both wounded people and are frightened by the intensity of their feelings. Eventually Kate has to learn that if you love someone you must let them go. This novel is written in hindsight as Kate reflects on their lives, together and painfully apart. It is a moving memoir of a lifelong love, a love that goes through many changes and major upheavals but that can never end. Bestselling author Steel deals sensitively with difficult issues and handles her characters with compassion. (Kirkus UK)
