Read full description of the books EMERALD:Well written, based on the premise that Wallis Simpson and Edward V111 had a daughter before they were married. They didn't want her and shunted her off to a friendly family willing to keep their secret. They certainly came across as a self obsessed selfish couple. Iona raised her as her own along side of her son Callum. The children were devoted to each other. Callum her hero who would always care for her. When they were shunted off to a remote Scottish Island, for safety, during the war and survived a shipwreck their lives changed forever. Emerald had a wonderful childhood there until shunted of to Mexico with her 'Nan'. Her true parents didn't want her and would have been most happy if she had died when the ship went down. Callum's parents had died in the war and the powers that be decided it was time to separate them completely. Emerald was heart broken and set her mind to find her way herself. She grew up a little wild and once her Nan died and a marriage was being arranged she ran away. Hard work, much heartache and misunderstandings, a great love, tough life changing decisions but ultimately success and peace.
