Can their love survive the darkest of days?
1943: Europe is at war—but neutral Ireland is isolated from the storm. In a sleepy coastal village south of Dublin, eighteen-year-old Aileen Sweeney meets soldier Niall O’Rourke at a dance, and the spark between them soon ignites a powerful love.
But when Niall makes a life-changing and contentious decision, Aileen’s hopes and dreams fall apart. In an instant Niall is transformed from dashing suitor to social outcast, and the fallout leaves each of them navigating the consequences alone. Putting her innocence behind her, Aileen must make her own tough choices—choices that will set the course of the rest of her life.
Aileen and Niall have promised to stay true to each other while they’re apart, but in a world at war and where nothing is certain, can their relationship really survive the distance of an ocean?

It is a romance historical fiction placed in Ireland during WWII about true love. Thank you Netgalley for this book.
An interesting read, with a backdrop, primarily, of Ireland during World War II. The author also used a bit of a dual timeline, which was engaging, but the main focus of the book was during the War as we meet and follow Aileen and Niall. Having read a great deal of both fiction and non-fiction regarding World War II, I was aware that Ireland was neutral, but this is the first novel I have read which explored the situation in so much depth and, at times, dismay for the characters. The story is about friendship, love, political views, and life choices, as well as the dark aspects of war. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
