The Second World War - a mother must make a heartbreaking sacrifice in order to save her child...A poignant and powerful family saga from the author of Au Revoir Liverpool .

1944. It is spring, late morning, when Flora's life changes for ever. She is standing on a platform in the Swiss mountains, watching as a cattle train draws near. From within the wooden trucks she can hear human voices - groaning, pleading and desperate.

Horrified, she begins to run alongside the train, frantically trying to help. But as the train picks up speed, a filthy bundle of rags is thrust through the slats and into her arms - 'Take him. His name is Simon.'

Flora stands on the platform, a baby boy cradled against her. And although everything looks exactly as it did moments before, nothing will ever be the same again.

Sunday Times bestseller Maureen Lee has written a powerful, moving story of war, motherhood and love.
