It’s 1913 and Dudley Smythe has decided to rid himself of his half-sister, Aila, who stands to inherit part of their father’s estate. A fatal fall from her horse is the perfect solution. But ploughman, Will Hammond, finds and rescues her. His reward? A savage beating from Dudley’s cronies.

World War wrenches Will away from Aila. And it is three years until their worlds collide again. Aila is now a nurse; Will, a decorated Colour Sergeant. Dudley, now an artillery major, has one more chance to take revenge on Will.

Three years earlier Will Hammond saved Aila Smythe’s life. Can she now save his?
