A young, enigmatic woman-Lily Azerov-arrives in postwar Montreal
expecting to meet her betrothed, Sol Kramer. When Sol sees Lily at
the train station, however, he turns her down. His brother, Nathan,
sees Lily and instantly decides to marry her.
But Lily is not who she claims to be, and her attempt to live a
quiet life as Nathan Kramer''s wife shatters when she disappears,
leaving her baby daughter with only a diary, an uncut diamond and a
need to discover the truth.
Who is Lily and what happened to the young woman whose identity
she stole? Why did she leave and where did she go? It is up to the
daughter Lily abandoned to find the answers to these questions as
she searches for the mother she may never find or truly know.
