The past uncovered. Rachel Swift travels to the Mediterranean island of Corsica to discover more about her forebears. She comes across a series of passionate love letters and delves into their history.
The story unfolds of a secret romance at the start of the 20th century between a village schoolteacher and Maria, the daughter of a bourgeois family. Maria's parents have other plans for her future, though, and she sees her dreams crumble.

Her life is played out against the backdrop of Corsica, the 'island of beauty', and the turmoil of World War I.

This is a story about love, loss and reconciliation in a strict patriarchal society, whose values are challenged as the world changes.

Love gained and lost.
