New York Times bestselling author Hazel Gaynor has joined
with Heather Webb to create this unforgettably romantic
novel of the Great War.
August 1914. England is at war. As Evie Elliott watches
her brother, Will, and his best friend, Thomas Harding,
depart for the front, she believesâ€”as everyone doesâ€”that
it will be over by Christmas, when the trio plan to
celebrate the holiday among the romantic cafes of Paris.
But as history tells us, it all happened so differentlyâ€¦
Evie and Thomas experience a very different war.
Frustrated by life as a privileged young lady, Evie longs
to play a greater part in the conflictâ€”but how?â€”and as
Thomas struggles with the unimaginable realities of war he
also faces personal battles back home where War Office
regulations on press reporting cause trouble at his
fatherâ€™s newspaper business. Through their letters, Evie
and Thomas share their greatest hopes and fearsâ€”and grow
ever fonder from afar. Can love flourish amid the horror
of the First World War, or will fate intervene?
Christmas 1968. With failing health, Thomas returns to
Parisâ€”a cherished packet of letters in handâ€”determined to
lay to rest the ghosts of his past. But one final letter
is waiting for himâ€¦
