This is a fascinating account of a woman who, given her birth and breeding, should never have gotten where she did. (If royalty can have stage mothers, Catherine certainly did.)

They want Maisie to find the unnamed nurse whose love letters were among Michael's belongings, a quest that takes Maisie back to her own bittersweet wartime love. Her inquiries, and the stunning discovery that Michael Clifton was murdered in his trench, unleash a web of intrigue and violence that threatens to engulf the soldier's family and even Maisie herself.
