An historical saga of undying love and family, the tragedy of war and the power of hope.

Ballarat, 1905 The gossips call 19-year-old Edie Cottingham the 'Too Girl' – too stubborn, too outspoken and too modern to get a husband. But Edie does not care. She is determined to defy them all and find love with Theo Hooley, the gentle church organist and veteran of the African Boer war. But just as Theo prepares to ask Edie's father for her hand, their world is turned upside down. Edie's mother is gone and she must care for her new baby sister. Gracie is a sickly baby with a special smile that enchants everyone who sees it. How can Edie marry and leave the family home now? But Theo Hooley is a man who knows how to wait. Every Sunday, Theo walks from his home to woo Edie, rose in hand. Each week Edie refuses him, knowing that he is asking for more than a walk around the lake on a Sunday afternoon. Each week Theo resolves anew to wait for her. Slowly the town begins to fall under the spell of the romance. Women sigh and men mutter at the challenge Theo presents to their relationships. As the local children create a growing procession that follows Theo each week, the whole community becomes caught up in his display of devotion, until an unexpected event changes all their lives. From a small Australian country town to the tragic backdrop of World War 1, this is a story of a love that surmounts all odds …

'Langton manages to preserve a lovely aura of romance, and writes truly about enduring love through characters that are meaningful and authentic ... A delight from beginning to end.'
