Overview

In the shadow of the Great War, grieving widow, Helen Morrow and her husband's cousin, the wounded and reclusive Paul, are haunted not only by the horrors of the trenches but ghosts from another time and another conflict.

As the desperate voice of the young woman reaches out to them from the pages of a coded diary, Paul and Helen are bound together in their search for answers, not only to the old mystery but also the circumstances surrounding the death of Helen's husband at Passchandaele in 1917.

As the two stories become entwined, Paul and Helen will not find peace until the mysteries are solved.

I found the title of this book on a random twitter post. I read a summary about the story and gave it a try. I liked it very much. There was a good cast of likeable characters (couple not so likeable). I thought the novel painted a realistic picture of the aftermath of WWI. One has to suspend belief for parts of the book, but that's what makes it more interesting. The novel, for me, had everything - war, the effects of war, an old house with a story, a love story, and more. I would have loved to know more about Paul and Helen's future together. I felt I didn't get enough time with them as a couple.
