Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Three generations of Stewart women share a deep connection to their family farm, but a secret from the past threatens to tear them apart. Widowed matriarch Maggie remembers a time when the Italian prisoners of war came to work on their land, changing her heart and her home forever. Single mum Toni has been tied to the place for as long as she can recall, although farming was never her dream. And Flick is as passionate about the farm as a girl could be, despite the limited opportunities for love. When a letter from 1946 is unearthed in an old cottage on the property, the Sunnyvale girls find themselves on a journey into their own hearts and across the world to Italy. Their quest to solve a mystery leads to incredible discoveries about each other, and about themselves. Praise for Fiona Palmer 'A cleverly engrossing plot about a family of women on a quest to solve a family mystery (with plenty of unexpected love along the way).' The Age 'A charming love story based on an almost forgotten chapter in Australian history.' Ballarat Courier
