October, 1946. The Red Cross escort a group of child refugees from Europe to England.
Among them is Brigitta - a serious, silent figure with worn clothes and a small cardboard suitcase containing a single grey glove.
Arriving in London, Brigitta breaks from the group and runs . . .
Brigitta's mission: to reach Summerland Hall and find the one person who can solve a wartime mystery. But Summerland holds secrets and shadows of its own... and perhaps the key to a new life and new beginnings.
An extraordinarily rich tale of love, prejudice, truth and forgiveness, inspired by real events.
