Sea-captain Stephen Elliott finds more than he suspected when he's drawn into Zoe Clifford's search for the truth behind faded photographs and a WW1 diary.

Why did Liam Elliott serve with the Australian forces - and who was Georgina Duncannon? As the secrets of two generations of star-crossed lovers come to light, time slips into the past, taking us from York to Australia, Gallipoli and the Somme, and revealing the seductive power of a piercing, impossible affair.

Joining a ship bound for the war-torn Middle East, Stephen is faced with some disturbing parallels between then and now, just as Zoe, alone in London, is discovering the agony of distance, love and loss.

Liam's haunting presence touches them both, but it takes a near-tragedy to make the message clear: only in the present can the past be healed…

Inspired by a real WW1 diary, and revisiting characters introduced in her bestselling novel, 'Louisa Elliott', here, Ann Victoria Roberts uncovers Louisa's legacy to later generations.

'A thoroughly satisfying historical novel that bridges the decades with grace and skill…' Kirkus Reviews

'A splendid piece of storytelling about the loss of innocence and a love which endures…' Publishing News

About the Author

Born in York, Ann Victoria Roberts now lives in Southampton with her Master Mariner husband. She is the author of five historical novels inspired by the lives of people as diverse as a young WW1 soldier, a modern historian, Bram Stoker and Captain EJ Smith of the Titanic. Love in its many forms, and the effects of the past upon the present are linking themes. The first editions of Louisa Elliott and Liam’s Story were international bestsellers – re-published in 2014 for their 25th anniversary and the centenary of WW1.
