The Great War took much more than lives. It robbed a generation of friends, lovers and futures. In Freddie Watson's case, it took his beloved brother and, at times, his peace of mind. Unable to cope with his grief, Freddie has spent much of the time since in a sanatorium. In the winter of 1928, still seeking resolution, Freddie is travelling through the French Pyrenees - another region that has seen too much bloodshed over the years. During a snowstorm, his car spins off the mountain road. Shaken, he stumbles into the woods, emerging by a tiny village. There he meets Fabrissa, a beautiful local woman, also mourning a lost generation. Over the course of one night, Fabrissa and Freddie share their stories of remembrance and loss. By the time dawn breaks, he will have stumbled across a tragic mystery that goes back through the centuries. By turns thrilling, poignant and haunting, this is a story of two lives touched by war and transformed by courage.

“disappointing”

I'd loved Kate Mosse's Labyrinth and Sepulchre and I guess I was expecting something as thrilling with The Winter Ghosts. Despite the lovely edition I got (hard cover and old-style cut pages) the story... More

“Not the greatest read”

I had high hopes for this book having read the back but it really wasn't the greatest read. It would have made a great short story but it was too padded out. Definitely wouldn't recommend.

“Classic Kate Mosse”

This book took me back to the Languedoc and reminded me of the excellent quality of Kate Mosse's books. It revived my interest in her and I have subsequently bought "Labyrinth" to re-read.
