London, 1941. There are so many reasons Rose Hamilton she should ignore the advertisement: the war, those treacherous seas, her family, her fiancé… but she cannot help herself. Within weeks, she is boarding an enormous convoy, already too attached to five-year-old Walter Lucknow.

But rural Queensland, and the big house with the rolling hills where Walter was born, is not as either of them were told to expect. Rose cannot leave this little boy until he is happy and settled, and she knows the key to this is Walter’s wounded fighter pilot uncle Max.

But how will she ever part with Walter? And what if he isn’t the only reason she wants to stay?
