It was the war to end all wars…
When Emily Culver’s brother William and his best friend James leave their small Colorado town to fight in France, Emily joins the Red Cross. After all, William isn’t just her brother—he’s her closest friend and confidant, and she won’t sit idly by at home while he risks his life for the Allied cause. And James? After the life-or-death stakes of wartime transform Emily and James’s mutual dislike into romance, she would risk anything to help win the War and bring both him and her brother home in one piece.
At the dawn of a new peace, the ghosts of war haunt them…
Eighteen months later, Emily returns from France alone. The Army marked William missing and presumed dead only a few days before the end of the War, and after James’s letters to her stopped coming, she assumes he has met the same fate. Emily hopes the Army will bring William and James home alive, or at least reveal their final resting place, but the War taught her that hope often leads to heartbreak.
But James is alive, and he returns from the War with a terrible secret. He knows exactly how William met his fate and holds himself responsible for it. Torn between relieving Emily’s anguish at not knowing her brother’s end and sparing her the horror of his last moments, James walks a terrible line between loyalty and betrayal, lies and the truth. As they struggle against the legacy of war and death to rebuild their lives, Emily and James will learn that the greatest battle of all is coming home.
