Summary Note Dora Simon is comfortable in her retirement, indulging her interests in gardening and music. Joe O'Cleary is content on the Jersey farm he helped rebuild with its owner, Geoffrey Laurent. But their worlds are shattered by the arrival of Barbara Hummel, a young German who is anxious to track down the identity of a mysterious woman whose photograph she found among her mother's possessions. As the truth of what happened under the occupation begins to be revealed, the lives of Dora, a Jewish refugee, and Joe, a Catholic priest, start to unravel in shocking and surprising ways. The consequences of the lives they lived under the Germans and the lies that followed are as unexpected as they are devastating.
