Published by Hachette New Zealand, 26 November 2013, $37.99 RRP

The breathtaking new novel from the bestselling author of The Russian Concubine and The White Pearl. An epic story of love, loss and danger in paradise.

With beautiful blue skies, sandy beaches and glorious sunshine, the Bahamas is a slice of heaven. But in 1943, the world is at war and even paradise isn't safe.

Twenty-two-year-old Dodie Wyatt thought she had escaped her turbulent past, then one night her peace is shattered when she chooses to help a man she finds stabbed in an alleyway.

On the other side of Nassau, wealthy diplomat's wife Ella Stanford is determined to keep her husband away from his Nazi friends and throws herself into charitable work for the town's poverty-stricken community and with entertainment for the allied troops.

But when one of the richest men in the world is found dead, these two very different women – Dodie, a shy introvert, and Ella, a confident socialite – are drawn together. With the unstable island spiralling into violence, deceit, greed and death, Dodie and Ella have only each other to rely on, as their lives are torn apart.
