The war brought them together. And will tear them apart...

Let No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller, Adele Parks, author of Just My Luck, sweep you away into a world of glamorous debutantes, heartbreak and discovering just what is worth fighting for in her stunning historical epic, If You Go Away.

Don't miss Adele's gripping new novel, the Sunday Times bestseller Both of You, out now!

'A real emotional treat' Daily Mail

'Epic, romantic, devastating' Heat

'Beautifully and surprisingly gritty' Red

Daring debutante Vivian Foster has London society at her feet - all she needs is a proposal to complete her triumphant season. A moment's indiscretion causes her world to crumble, just as the country around her erupts into a devastating war. Everything seems bleak. Until she meets Howard.

Celebrated playwright Howard Henderson wants no part in the killing of a faceless enemy, but refusing to fight will lead to imprisonment, even death. He wishes he could convey the depth of inhumanity he witnessed at the Front but the words won't come. Until he meets Vivian.

Now they've found each other - and something worth fighting for.

But will the war demand that sacrificing their future together is the only way to honour their love?

What readers are saying about If You Go Away:

'I was moved to tears repeatedly as this novel worked its magic on me. The writing is beautiful, deceptively light in places, harrowing and tragic in others. Adele Parks is a stunning storyteller'

'A must read and a truly wonderful tribute to war heroes and their wives'
