New York City, present day... In one night, Etta Spencer is wrenched from everything she knows and loves. Thrown into an unfamiliar world, she can be certain of only one thing: she has travelled not just miles, but years from home.

The Atlantic, 1776... Captain Nicholas Carter is tasked with delivering Etta to the dangerous Ironwood family. They are searching for something - a stolen object they believe only she can reclaim. But Nicholas is drawn to his mysterious passenger, and the closer he gets to her, the further he is from freedom.

The Edges of the World... Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by a desperate thief. But as Etta plays deeper into the Ironwoods' game, treacherous forces threaten to separate her not only from Nicholas, but from her path home - for ever.

When Pierrot becomes an orphan, he must leave his home in Paris for a new life with his Aunt Beatrix, a servant in a wealthy household at the top of the German mountains. But this is no ordinary time, for it is 1935 and the Second World War is fast approaching; and this is no ordinary house, for this is the Berghof, the home of Adolf Hitler.

Quickly, Pierrot is taken under Hitler’s wing, and is thrown into an increasingly dangerous new world: a world of terror, secrets and betrayal, from which he may never be able to escape.

Deborah se verbittering teenoor haar man, Karl, vererger, en daarby word haar liefde vir Kit galsterig met die verloop van die jare. Weens sy onvermoë om sy vrou se liefde te herwin word die lewe vir Karl onuithoudbaar – soveel so dat hy dinge in sy eie hande neem. Maar ook Deborah en Kit dra letsels ná die Boereoorlog: Ten spyte van hul hunkering na mekaar, bly hul liefde onvervuld. Op die vooraand van die Eerste Wêreldoorlog ontmoet Kurt, Deborah se seun, vir Victoria, Kit se dogter. Hulle word verlief en is bereid om die besware van hul families teen te staan. Die spanning bereik ’n breekpunt wanneer hulle in ’n skermutseling in Europa vasval en hul liefde ’n duur prys verg . . .

Wat hou die toekoms vir die Mannheim- en Malloy-families in? En kan Deborah en Kit, dekades ná hulle die eerste keer ontmoet het, uiteindelik versoen raak in hul liefde vir mekaar?
