In 1939, full of youth and optimism, Ethel Maltby has come to London to reinvent herself. She lives with her new friend Precious Dubose in a small flat they can barely afford, and the two young women model elegant fashion and socialize at lavish nightclubs. Hoping to fit into high society and leave her past behind, Ethel changes her name to Eva Harlow and plans to never look back. But the war soon takes everything from Eva, and she must reinvent herself once more to survive. Eighty years later, Maddie Warner travels to London to write an article about fashion icon Precious Dubose. When a past love is unexpectedly rekindled, Maddie denies her feelings and tries to focus on her writing instead. She soon discovers Precious' life story isn't what it seems, and works to unravel the truth about Precious and Eva at the start of WWII. Prolific author White (Dreams of Falling, 2018) intertwines the stories of two women, separated by generations but connected by grief, who both survive loss and reinvent themselves after tragedy.
