A fabulous page-turning story of an epic love story that crosses continents and timelines - a 'gobble it all up in one sitting' novel full of romance and suspense.
'...a heady blend of wit, charm, and romantic sizzle, all wrapped around a tantalizing mystery.' Anne Fortier, New York Times bestselling author
When twenty-something Wall Street analyst Kate Wilson attracts the notice of the legendary Julian Laurence at a business meeting, no one's more surprised than she. Julian's relentless energy and his extraordinary intellect electrify her, but she's baffled by his sudden interest. Why would this handsome British billionaire -- Manhattan's most eligible bachelor -- pursue a pretty but bookish young banker who hasn't had a boyfriend since college?
The answer is beyond imagining . . . at least at first. Kate and Julian's story may have begun not in the moneyed world of twenty-first-century Manhattan but in France during World War I, when a mysterious American woman emerged from the shadows of the Western Front to save the life of Captain Julian Laurence Ashford, a celebrated war poet and infantry officer.
Now, in modern-day New York, Kate and Julian must protect themselves from the secrets of the past, and trust in a true love that transcends time and space.
'History meets romance meets suspense! Compelling, original and wildly romantic, Beatriz Williams' prose is stunning and the plot edge-of-your-seat gripping. Overseas is an absolute triumph - I loved every page.' Tilly Bagshawe, New York Times bestselling author
