As war in Europe comes ever closer, the small Scottish town of Wick appears a safe haven for Hannah Cormack and her family. But the appearance in their midst of the charming Argentinian, Jorge St Clair, soon disturbs their peace as daughter Joyce falls headlong in love with him.
Then war is declared. With brother Bobby called up to serve in France, Jorge becomes an invaluable part of the family business, but is he all that he appears?
When a company of Canadian Foresters arrives in the area with Hugh Mackay as one of their number, the scene is set.
Book 2 in the Mizpah Ring Trilogy introduces the second generation of Cormacks, Mackays, and St Clairs as their lives entwine and play out against the backdrop of Wick in wartime.
Must they follow in the footsteps of their parents, or can they strike out afresh and make new lives, new futures for themselves?
