This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.

Kent, 1939. Eliza is to be married to Nicholas, her companion since she was a child. But when the pair are involved in a car crash, Eliza is rescued by a stranger, Lewis Harper, whose stunning green eyes she will never forget.
As the war begins, Eliza’s world begins to fall apart: her beloved brother Martyn is killed in action, and her once-beloved husband grows increasingly distant. And then, when her efforts to help the Dunkirk evacuees take her to the south coast, she spots a familiar pair of eyes.
What I liked:
With references to Elizabeth Arden, Chat Noir, and Viennese couture specially flown in, this book gives the perfect insight to the life of the aristocracy during World War II.
This book has everything you could wish for in a novel. Romance, unrequited love, war, and family ties. It really does grip you and keep you guessing.
What I didn’t like:
I felt the start of this book was a little slow, and it did take a little while for me to get into the story.
Out of five:
Four. I struggled a little at the start, but once I got going I could not say no to this book.
