Anna Moore grew up with an alcoholic mother and father who abandoned her before she was born. Life in the small Irish village hasn’t been ideal, especially when she succumbs to a night of passion with a gorgeous stranger, which results in a pregnancy. Her dreams of going to study art go up in smoke as she ends up in the same situation as her mother, running a bed and breakfast as a single mother.

Dimitri Kyrakiou is a man who trusts no one but himself. His mother died unexpectedly at a young age, leaving him with no family until the rich father he’s never known finally accepts him and takes him in. His upbringing changes dramatically, giving him riches he’s never known, but no one to love him. He works harder than anyone, proving a success in the Kyrakiou Bank, until false information sends him to jail.

Through an obscure range of information, Dimitri finds out he has fathered a daughter. He is given information that leads him to think Anna is in fact her mother, a drunk with a record, who he feels isn’t fit to be the mother of his child. Dimitri is thrown when he discovers that is far from the truth and coerces Anna into going to Greece with him. Once there he insists they marry to secure the best future for their daughter, but their emotions can’t be set aside for long.

This is a beautiful and passionate secret baby story. Their upbringings are quite similar, in that both feel alone, and betrayed by their parents. Anna documents their daughter’s upbringing in heartfelt letters to Dimitri, which was a part of the story that I just fell in love with. It’s beautiful and really brings the story together.

The connection the author builds between Anna and Dimitri came alive on the page, it’s one of the most favourite Presents I’ve read this year, and I cannot wait to read Dimitri’s friends from the Winners Circle stories, also by this author. I can see she’s going to be another favourite Presents author for me.
