Inspired by the courage and dedication of ordinary people who did extraordinary things for their country, J M Owen's gripping novel, The Shadow of War, marks the centenary of the First World War as told from a woman's point of view. This book is a historical romance, set initially in Leaversham Hall, an Edwardian country house in Cheshire, and told from the perspective of a lady's maid, Amy. As the First World War casts a shadow over the family, and slowly, yet inexorably extinguishes all life and light from The Hall, the narrative moves firstly to war torn London then to the Western Front, where Amy, now a VAD (Voluntary Aid Detachment) nursing assistant, tends the wounded from the trenches. During these years her love for Guy, the war damaged heir to Leaversham Hall, gathers strength, which leads to an extraordinary series of events and a deeply passionate affair which has a most unexpected outcome.
