New Year's Eve, 1939. Virginia is ten, an orphan arriving to meet her new parents. In her new home on the edge of a vast marsh, the war feels far away amongst the birds and shifting sands - until the day a German fighter plane crashes into the marsh. The people at Salt Winds are the only ones to see it. What happens next is something Virginia will regret for the next seventy-five years, and which will change the whole course of her life.
