By July 1914, the ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, friends since girlhood, have become strained - by Thea's passionate embrace of women's suffrage, and by the imminent marriage of Kezia to Thea's brother, Tom, who runs the family farm. Yet when Tom enlists to fight for his country and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the battlefield, the farm becomes Kezia's responsibility. Each must find a way to endure the ensuing cataclysm and turmoil. But will well-intended lies and self-deception be of use when they come face to face with the enemy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Jacqueline Winspear has a formidable command of the history of the Great War, and a stunning ability to take some of the most amazing and horrible aspects of that era and bring them home.' NPR Books 'This new stand-alone novel is, above all, a moving tale about the beauty of those very virtues - fortitude, faithfulness, compassion - that the Great War called into question'The Washington Post 'A stunning and heart-breaking novel set in WWI, both in the trenches in France and in the fields of England. A haunting and evocative account from an unusual angle of this war, this tale with pull at the heart strings.'Sheila O'Reilly, Dulwich Books 'Stunning characterisation and dialogue...a timely look at the turmoil the war brought not only to those serving on the front lines but also to those left behind. A must-read!' Books Monthly 'A moving, beautifully paced story of love and duty' Booklist 'Poignant, sensitive and evocative, this is an inspiring exploration of women's changing roles in a turbulent world'. Good Book Guide 'A haunting, yet very engaging story' Random things through My Letterbox
