A breathtaking romance: At the end of World War II, lovers Eva and Zoe flee to Australia to seek refuge and forge a new life. But can their passion survive the dangers that follow them?
Eva struggles with the ramifications of her tortured past as she tries to overcome the mental constraints forced upon her. She is unable to physically show her love for Zoe without feeling the effects of the aversion treatments she was subjected to as a teenager. Eva tries to find a way to break the mental shackles but it's harder than she anticipated.
Zoe will never be described as a patient woman but for Eva she is willing to wait for those shackles to be broken. In the meantime, Zoe is working in a restaurant and not following her dreams. Zoe's life long dream of being an artist is just a dream but Eva has a plan to make that happen even if means working at a menial, back breaking job.
Shadows from their past and machinations of old enemies plunge them into mortal danger. They are about to find out the hard way that moving thousands of miles away does not protect them from those that wish them harm.
