Quando Dario si accorse delle ferite da taglio sulla delicata pelle di Elena, tenute nascoste fino ad allora, il mondo gli crollò addosso: perché lo faceva? Il medico del pronto soccorso aveva pronunciato una parola terribile, angosciante, mostruosa: autolesionismo. Perché, nonostante due anni insieme, non gli aveva mai parlato del suo problema? E perché continuava a tacere, nonostante confessasse di amarlo alla follia? Cosa o chi voleva coprire? Dario voleva andare a fondo, scavare nel passato della sua amata Elena, sapere tutto sui misteriosi genitori, sull'amica del cuore che lui, stranamente, non aveva mai conosciuto, su chi frequentava quando non erano insieme... In una continua lotta fra sentimenti, amore e mistero, Dario era certo che, dopo il ricovero in un istituto psichiatrico, avrebbe scoperto, finalmente, l'inconfessabile segreto che Elena celava nell'abisso della propria coscienza...

Polonia, 1942. Alla periferia del villaggio di Sokal, in una modesta casetta di legno con un po’ di terreno intorno, vivono Franciszka e la figlia Helena. Al culmine della persecuzione nazista, tutti gli ebrei di Sokal vengono radunati nel ghetto per poi essere deportati. A rischio della sua stessa vita e di quella della figlia, Franciszka accetta di nascondere due famiglie ebree e un giovane disertore tedesco; dietro la sua decisione non c’è un’ideologia né la spinta della religione, ma solo un profondo senso di giustizia e rispetto per la vita umana. Nella sua piccolissima casa Franciszka tiene accesa e protegge la fiamma della speranza nel futuro per quelle persone che a lei si affidano come a una madre. E in fondo, per tutti loro Franciszka sarà proprio questo: una madre amorevole e forte, capace di compiere il più grande dei sacrifici con la naturalezza dei gesti quotidiani più semplici. Perché quando un giorno la guerra sarà finita non conterà ciò che si sarebbe potuto fare, ma solo ciò che si è avuto il coraggio di fare.

Star D'Aplièse is at a crossroads in her life after the sudden death of her beloved father - the elusive billionaire, named Pa Salt by his six daughters, all adopted by him from the four corners of the world. He has left each of them a clue to their true heritage, but Star - the most enigmatic of the sisters - is hesitant to step out of the safety of the close relationship she shares with her sister CeCe. In desperation, she decides to follow the first clue she has been left, which leads her to an antiquarian bookshop in London, and the start of a whole new world . . . A hundred years earlier, headstrong and independent Flora MacNichol vows she will never marry.

Flora is pulled between passionate love and duty to her family, but finds herself a pawn in a game - the rules of which are only known to others, until a meeting with a mysterious gentleman unveils the answers that Flora has been searching for her whole life . . . As Star learns more of Flora's incredible journey, she too goes on a voyage of discovery, finally stepping out of the shadow of her sister and opening herself up to the possibility of love.
