The beautiful city of Venice has been Lydia's home for many years, a place where she has found peace and fulfillment. Then one day she glimpses a young man's face in the crowd that threatens to change everything. He's a heart-stopping reminder of a dreadful secret she believed she had banished to the past. As a young child, Lydia and her sister were sent to live with grandparents they'd never even met before. It was a cruel and loveless new world for them and it forced Lydia to grow up fast. She learned to keep secrets and to trust sparingly, and through it all she was shadowed by grief and guilt. Now, 28 years later, Lydia is persuaded to leave behind the safe new life she has created for herself and return to England to face the pastand maybe her future.

I really enjoyed this book. Even though it would fall into the category of light reading, it had enough intrique to maintain my interest throughout. The characters were a little "too good to be true" at times, but I warmed to them. This experience has prompted me to go on and read some more by this author.
A tale of jumping to conclusions and living with the repercussions.Lydia lives through her miserable and traumatic childhood, where her only bright lights are Sister Lottie, Joey and of course Noah. The culmination of events changes everything and effects the life of Lydia, her sister Valerie and of course Noah.Until, one day in Venice...Moving and enjoyable.
