1913 in Bombay. Madeline Bright has come home from school to the sweltering heat in India. And desperately would like to go back!
It’s New Year’s Eve and she isn’t looking for someone to kiss,but when she meets Luke Devereaux, everything changes for both of them.
Lucy’s mother,who seems cold and detached is not for the match and has already lined up a husband for her daughter. A doctor named Guy, who Maddy has no interest in at all.
But war is on the way and will take Luke far away from Maddy. They are far away from each other and all she has to hold on to is the promise that he will meet her in Bombay.
Meanwhile Luke’s time in the war have left not even remembering who he is, much less Maddy.
But nothing is stronger than love. But can Maddy wait? Will she wait?
This was a tearjerker and not the usual ending which I enjoyed!
