Step into the changing world of post-World War II Australia, where two sisters, bound by love and torn by choices, make new lives after Maria Vincento entices her sister, Angeline away from their home on the tiny Italian island of Procida. As Angeline reluctantly sets foot on the ship to their new beginnings, her heart carries the weight of a shattered dream.

Love in a Far Place

At the Villawood Migrant Hostel on Sydney's outskirts, fate introduces them to Stewart Erskine, a gregarious Scottish immigrant destined for remarkable success. His presence sets in motion a series of events that will forever alter the course of the sisters' lives, pushing Angeline to confront an agonising decision.

Years later, Angeline's granddaughter, Emily, a celebrated Sydney model, grapples with her grandmother's failing health. When she stumbles upon the secrets of her late grandfather's enigmatic business dealings, Emily is more determined than ever to unravel her grandmother's past, which takes them to an apple orchard in Tasmania where a young Italian, Raphael Lombardi, worked as a prisoner-of-war.

Coming to terms with her grandmother's past, does Emily have the courage to follow her own heart and leave her old life behind?

From the beloved author of The Homestead on the River, comes a poignant narrative of lost loves, hidden family mysteries, and the enduring power of hope that will leave you captivated.
