The mysterious death of a young mother damages the precious, protective bonds of love. Sail Upon the Land tells the tale of four generations of mothers and their children, spanning 80 turbulent years of English history. From the hills of India to London's ballrooms, crumbling country mansions to hospital corridors, the novel has been described as 'delicious', 'heart-breaking' and 'full of drama, pain, suffering, steadfastness and ultimately redemption'. SARAH
Is the courage she displays during WWII enough to carry her through a long life of love and loss?
Living in her own fairytale, will she find the strength she needs to survive reality?
Rejecting her background following a frightening ordeal, can she ever find her way home?
Who is she really, and will she deliver the one precious gift that will heal all their wounds?
