The Heart of the NightBook - 2009
An epic novel of passion, betrayal and danger, set in wartime Britain and Europe. Secrets of the 1930s return to haunt Kay Garland and Miranda Denisov in the aftermath of World War II. Kay is enjoying life in 1930s Berlin as companion to Russian heiress Miranda when Miranda's father learns of his daughter's secret love affair and dismisses Kay, suspecting that she has encouraged the lovers. Back in England, Kay falls for dashing Roland Dacre and eventually marries him, while Miranda marries Friedrich, a German Count. War takes Roland to Burma while Miranda finds herself trapped in Germany as the Red Army advances, only escaping with the help of American Jack Brennan. After the war, Roland's terrible experiences as a POW in Burma cast a shadow over Kay's marriage, while Miranda becomes a successful actress with a new name -- until the reappearance of Jack Brennan. When Miranda disappears, Kay sets out to find her, and discover the truth.
