The sky is clear, star-stamped and silvered by the waxing gibbous moon. No planes have flown over the islands tonight; no bombs have fallen for over a year.
Orkney, 1941. Five hundred Italian prisoners of war arrive to fortify these wild and desolate islands. Orphaned sisters Dorothy and Constance volunteer to nurse the wounded.
But while beautiful, damaged Constance remains wary of the men, Dot finds herself increasingly drawn to Cesare, a young man fighting on the wrong side and broken by the horrors of battle. Secretly, passionately, they fall in love. When a tragic mistake from Con's past returns to haunt them, Dot must make a choice: protect her sister no matter the costs, or save the man who has captured her heart?
