As WWI begins, no family, including the Neylers, will be left untouched, and by the time the war finally finishes, nothing will ever be the same again
Ted and Tina Neyler's children are growing up, doomed to be drawn into the Great War: Frank will be scarred forever by one terrible day in the trenches, while Louis, the charming optimist, returns unscathed from the war to find that his wife and mistress have met up and that his misdemeanours are inexorably catching up with him.
But despite the tragedy they face, the Neylers realise that even war can't break the bonds that keep them together.
"This is a heart warming but at the same time heart breaking story. Once again through fiction you learn about the effects of a terrible war. So much sorrow in one family but with happy endings too. You laugh and cry as the story unfolds. I loved the characters in this book. The Author, Katie Flynn – what a great storyteller. Her books are never a disappointment. I found this one very hard to put down. Well done!"
"Katie Flynn’s historical fiction does a brilliant job of capturing broad wartime themes."
"A compelling story…in her inimitable style"
