From the bestselling author of The Gazebo and The Observatory comes a passionate and gripping story that follows two devoted lovers through a dramatic period in history.

England. Summer, 1938. An adventurous and beautiful young American woman arrives at Oxford University, never expecting that her life -- and the entire world -- will soon change. When Maude Latham falls in love with her married literature tutor, Stephen Kendall, she learns that the Romantic poets had it right: Love is eternal. Yet just as she has fortified her conviction with the wisdom of the old poets, it is tested when World War II disrupts her perfect love affair. After Stephen joins the Royal Navy and disappears, Maude finds herself living through the war as a trauma nurse in a hospital. As time passes and the war progresses, Stephen's disappearance forces Maude to question everything she knows about the man she loves and all that he has taught her about love itself.

Emily Grayson takes readers into the turbulent history of World War II, exploring the lives of two lovers who are torn apart in the disorder and chaos that divided the world. A love story that is as deeply emotional as it is suspenseful, Waterloo Station is a timeless tale of faith and devotion that will touch everyone who reads it.

This has the feel of "Legends of the Fall": slow but steady, character-driven, and tragic. Great read on a cool fall day when you're feeling melodramatic.

An old-fashioned love story.
