He’s the man she was born to love… If only he wasn’t dead.
As Europe is about to explode into world war, a bullet goes astray and a British secret agent is hit. But he was not supposed to die. Back at home, waiting for a man she’s never met — the man she is destined to love — is the girl he would have married… if he had come home the way fate intended, not as a ghost.
As their destiny labors to put things right, the two fall in love during one beautiful English summer, just before the outbreak of World War II.
