A sweeping novel about two sisters and the prisoner-of-war whose life will entwine with theirs, inspired by a true story Orkney, 1940. On a remote island, a prisoner-of-war camp is constructed to house five hundred Italian soldiers. Upon arrival, a freezing Orkney winter and divided community greets them. Orphaned sisters Dorothy and Constance volunteer to nurse the men. Dot is immediately drawn to Cesare, a young man fighting on the wrong side and broken by war and destruction. The soldiers spend their days building a secret barricade between the islands. By night, however, they construct a reminder of their native land - an exquisite chapel. As tensions between the islanders and outsiders grow, the sisters' loyalty is tested. Will Dot choose love, or family?
