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. As Tom marches to the front lines, and Kezia battles to keep her ordered life from unravelling, they hide their despair in letters and cards filled with stories woven to bring comfort. But will well-intended lies and self-deception be of use when they come face to face with the enemy.

Reviews

'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 for the summer months! Books Monthly. '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.
