Summary, Etc. Two women. One secret. A truth worth fighting for. 1918. Timid Emmaline Balakin works at the lives more in books than her own life. That is, until an envelope crosses her desk at the Dead Letter Office bearing a name from her past, and Emmaline decides to finally embark on an adventure of her own--as a volunteer librarian on the frontlines in France. But when a romance blooms as she secretly participates in a book club for censored books, Emmaline will need to find more courage within herself than she ever thought possible in order to survive. 1976. Kathleen Carre is eager to prove to herself and to her nana that she deserves her acceptance into the first coed class at the United States Naval Academy.

To protect herself, Kathleen must learn to trust others even as she discovers a secret that could be her undoing.
