Though ensonced in an exclusive Belgian finishing school, Lucinda discovers that she cannot always be protected from life. She learns the truth of her friend Annabelndia's romantic escapades just as the terror of World War I sends the German army sweeping across Europe, sending the girls fleeing for home. Escorted by handsome Major Marcus Merrivale, they struggle toward England, unaware that a shared secret they cannot discuss is a ticking bomb, waiting to dash their desires. They do not realize that the harsh necessities of war are killing the world they once knew, or that the sly invasion into their ives of a sinister enemy will challenge friendship and destroy love--and that Lucinda's cherished dreams may never come true....

display_description While the world teeters on the brink of World War I, a young woman's indiscretion leads to a seething viper's nest of blackmail and murder In 1912, with war looming on the horizon, thirteen-year-old Lucinda Greenham is sent to an exclusive boarding school in Belgium. Her joy in sharing this adventure with her best friend, Annabelinda, is cut short when Annabelinda has a clandestine affair leading to pregnancy. Annabelinda's family arranges a "rest cure" and when the girl returns to school, she seems to have forgotten the incident. Then, in the wake of Germany's invasion of Belgium, Lucinda and Annabelinda are forced to flee across Europe and find a welcome savior in the dashing Major Marcus Merrivale. Safely back in England, Lucinda vows to keep her friend's secret. But someone in the household has uncovered the truth about Annabelinda and the lively baby called Edward. Now Lucinda, who has lost her heart to a decorated soldier, is faced with keeping another secret. As a blackmail plot erupts in murder, and war eradicates a way of life forever, Lucinda discovers that there is a time for love . . . and a time for silence.
