In this new novel from the author of Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen creates a wonderfully imagined, spellbinding tale of privilege, loss, and love... Madeline Hyde, a young socialite from Philadelphia, reluctantly follows her husband and their best friend to the tiny village of Drumnadrochit in Scotland in search of the Loch Ness monster, at the same time that a very real monster, Hitler, wages war against the Allied Forces. Despite German warplanes flying overhead and scarce food rations (and even scarcer stockings), what Maddie discovers about the larger world and about herself opens her eyes not only to the dark forces that exist around her but to the beauty and surprising possibilities as well...
