Emily Grayson, author of 'The Gazebo', weaves the story of a passionate love affair ignited at Oxford University in 1938 - only to see the lovers torn apart by WW2.
England. Summer, 1938. An adventurous and beautiful young American woman arrives at Oxford University, never expecting the ways that her life - and the entire world - will soon change. When Maude Latham falls in love with her married tutor, Stephen Kendall, she learns that the Romantic poets had it right: Love is eternal. But after Stephen joins the Royal Navy and disappears, and Maude finds herself living through the war years as a trauma nurse in a hospital, she has to question everything she's been taught about both Stephen and love itself.
In her latest novel, Grayson enters new territory, following two lovers through a dramatic period in history, and through a passion that is timeless.
