Synopsis

I'll Be Seeing You by Margaret Mayhew

When Juliet Porterâs mother dies, she leaves her a letter and an old second world war photograph, which reveal a shattering secret. The father she had known and loved dearly until the end of his life had not been her father after all. Instead, it seems that she is the daughter of an American bomber pilot who is completely unaware of her existence. Without knowing his name and with only the photograph to help her, Juliet sets out to search for her real father.


The task of tracing him proves both daunting and difficult. The trail is old and cold, and seemingly best left undisturbed, but Juliet feels compelled to go on, driven by a desperate need to find her father. Her search takes her back to the old wartime Suffolk airfield where her mother fell in love with the American pilot in 1942, and, eventually, to California where in the end end she meets not only her past but also her future.
