During the Christmas Truce of 1914, Hal Montgomery makes a pact with a German soldier that will change his life--he promises to find his enemy's English girlfriend, Sam, and let her know her fiancE is alive. But things take an unexpected turn when Hal falls in love with Sam himself. As their romance blossoms, she shares her most private confidence: Her newborn son is of German lineage, information that threatens her reputation and her job as a schoolteacher. Fearful that he will lose Sam, Hal holds tight to the secret that brought them together. But fashioning a family life proves precarious when it is founded on a lie.
