By Jenny Gladwell
Burnt out by a failed romance, journalist Jane Brook is sent to Norway to cover the story of the Queen of the Forest – a Christmas tree given to the people of London every winter. A week of luxury hotels and festive celebrations awaits, all in the company of dashing adventurer Philip Donnelly. Perhaps this is what Jane needs to mend her aching heart?
But in the snowy forest, Jane makes a surprising discovery: long-hidden wartime letters between between a young soldier and a mysterious girl. The last letter ends with a passionate plea that was never answered. Now, only Jane can give this story of love and courage a perfect ending – and in doing so, she might just change her own life forever.
