A family held captive in Nazi occupied Guernsey.
A mysterious stranger with no history.
Only one chance of survival.

1943. Nazi occupied Guernsey. Widow and mother Jeanne does whatever it takes to keep her adolescent daughter Estelle and daughter-in-law Lily safe on an island filled with danger and fear. Her toughest test arrives in the terrifying Commander Von Pfunz, who’s romantic advances maybe the only way to keep her family alive. But tensions intensify when a mysterious young man is washed ashore with no memory of who he is. Fluent in German and the Queen’s English, is he an RAF pilot, an SS interrogator, a local boy with amnesia or a saviour sent from heaven? The stakes are high and getting it wrong, means certain death.
