Beautiful, dark-haired Lily has been abandoned in a Birmingham slum as a tiny child. With few clues as to her identity she endures a childhood of loneliness & loss. At eighteen she applies for a post as nanny with the family of a Captain Fairford, a soldier in Ambala, north India & his highly strung wife Susan. Lily is drawn into the emotional life of the Fairford family & adores her charge, two year old Cosmo. When, in 1907, Captain Fairford orders a new Daimler car, it is brought out by a young motor mechanic, Sam Ironside. Sam & Lily fall deeply in love, & it is only later that Lily learns that Sam is married & feels utterly betrayed. When Cosmo is later sent home to school, Lily finds another post with a Dr. Mc Bride & his invalid wife, in a beautiful Himalayan hill station. The place is idyllic, & Lily settles for a quiet life. However, she is unprepared for the pain & misunderstandings that follow & force her to run from everything she has known... Where Earth Meets Sky takes us from Edwardian England & the British Raj, through the darkness of the Great War to the glamour of Brooklands Race Track in the 1920s. Spanning two continents, it is a story of enduring friendships & two hearts which cannot be kept apart.
