Author M.K. Tod’s meticulous research into the battles of both World Wars and the affects these wars had on soldiers and their families makes for reading that will satisfy any reader of historical fiction. We see the effect of Edward’s battle experiences vividly as Tod skillfully moves back and forth between Edward’s present life and his time in the trenches of the Great War. As World War II takes center stage, Edward must face his demons again. Meanwhile, his wife Ann sees the war from another side as she volunteers to work with grieving women and attempts to keep her family and herself together.
Tod shares both Edward and Ann's points of view thoroughly and honestly. Another thing I particularly liked about this novel was how it delved into the impact of secrets on relationships. Secrets caused by infidelity. Secrets caused by war. The characters are complex and the author does not choose the easy way out for anyone. An excellent debut novel.
When Edward Jamieson received an invitation to travel from Canada to France for the dedication of a monument to those brave men who served and died fighting during WWI he isn't sure whether he and his wife, Ann, should go or not. Edward has never fully recovered from the trauma and horror he experienced and doesn't see what good going back to the scene and letting himself remember those events will do. He has never fully told Ann about what he went through and isn't sure he will be able to keep himself sane. Beyond that, he isn't sure he is ready to see if the woman he loved, and later lost, will be there at the dedication. What will he do if he sees the woman who got away?
When Edward comes face to face with Helene, the woman who helped him heal after the war, he makes some series mistakes that put his own marriage in jeopardy. Working tirelessly to put his marriage back on track both he and Ann begin to experience some of the trust and intimacy they experienced in the early years of their marriage. That is until WWII hits.
When Edward is enlisted to be a part of some very top secret spy training for the Allies, he is forced to tell no one of his actions and to once again close part of himself off from Ann.Read more ›
I enjoyed this WWII novel.
It fully shows how the war affects everyone from young to old and the many ways people deal with the stress of war.
This book is about a married couple and their children. It covers both WWI and WWII Detailing the pain and destruction and the deep need for understanding and solace.
It is well written and engaging. There is betrayal and shame and forgiveness, recovery, healing and love. The author did wonderful research on both wars and found all that interesting.
It was a very good book.
But, it wasn't one that "drove" me to read it and keep reading it because I couldn't put it down. That's why I am giving it 4 stars. I do think it was excellent for what the author set out to do and she did a great job. The characters were very real, their conversations and actions believable. There is some sex in the book. Written tastefully but it may be too much for some --hence the warning I'm giving.
