Shipped home from France with scars on his body and soul, Russell Diamond despairs of ever feeling hope again. To spare his family the pain of seeing his anger, Russell escapes to a coastal village where he has inherited a great-uncle's home and sizeable savings. But peace is not easily found. A cottage on the grounds houses a German widow and her grown daughter. Russell thinks he has left the Great War, but when he hears Lorelei Goetz's pronounced accent, he realizes his neighbor speaks with the voice of his enemy. Will bitterness consume Russell's soul? Or will God use the gentle spirit of his sworn enemy to bring restoration to a battered heart?
