Featuring her latest historical fiction-

A Bridge Across the Ocean

Perfect for readers of Sarah’s Key, and The Nightingale

February, 1946. World War Two is over, but recovery from the most intimate of its horrors has only just begun for a German ballerina desperate to escape her past and the wronged daughter of a French Resistance spy. Now the two women are joining hundreds of other European war brides aboard the renowned RMS Queen Mary to be reunited with their American husbands. Their new lives in the United States brightly beckon until their tightly-held secrets are laid bare in their shared stateroom. Meanwhile in the present day, Brette Caslake – a young woman with the ability to see ghosts – visits the famously haunted Queen Mary at the request of an old friend. What she finds there will set her on a course to solve a seventy-year-old mystery; a pursuit that will ultimately lead her to reconsider what she’s willing to sacrifice for her own deepest longings.
