Reviews

"Julie Berry pens an utter delight in Lovely War, an effervescent confection of a novel filled with humor, tragedy, romance, and myth. Easily one of the best novels I have read all year!" --Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network

"This fascinating, gorgeously written novel of World War I will grip you and remind you that the greatest danger is closing our hearts to love." --Nancy Werlin, National Book Award honoree and New York Times bestseller

"Julie Berry writes the past as if she lived it." --Jennifer Donnelly, New York Times bestselling author "Scheherazade has nothing on Berry . . . An unforgettable romance so Olympian in scope, human at its core, and lyrical in its prose that it must be divinely inspired." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Berry's evocative novel . . . gains steam as the stories flesh out. Along the way, it suggests that while war and its devastation cycles through history, the forces of art and love remain steady, eternal, and life-sustaining." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Poignant...will make readers, by turns, laugh, cry, and swoon." --The Horn Book, starred review "Proves again that Berry is one of our most ambitious writers. Happily for us, that ambition so often results in great success." --Booklist, starred review

"Julie Berry [is] a modern master of historical fiction for young readers. . . Berry's superb research and attention to detail are perfectly suited to the layers of this story of love in wartime . . . [a] romantic yet unflinching look at teenagers coming of age during World War I." --Bookpage, starred review "
This poignant novel will make readers, by turns, laugh, cry, and swoon." --The Horn Book, starred review "Readers will be swept away by Berry's lyrical prose." --School Library Journal, starred review "When the hurly-burly's done, and the battle's lost and won, does Love conquer War? The answer is never in doubt, but it's a pleasure to have it confirmed by a celestially inspired storyteller." --The New York Times Book Review "Leavened by wit and informed by history, Lovely War is a romantic and inventive story from its dramatic start to its laughter- and tear-spangled ending." --The Wall Street Journal "Stunning . . . gives ordinary lives the sheen of the epic." --Refinery29 "[A] triumphant piece of historically focused fiction. . . a moving, brutal, and yes, lovely, story of the ways in which people find hope in a world gone mad" --BCCB Reviews "Berry's accomplished talent for developing all elements of plot--character, tone, and mood--in addition to her fresh writing style makes this title a compelling page turner." --School Library Connection
