Overview

An enthralling, deeply moving memoir from one of our foremost American war correspondents.

For more than twenty years, Janine Di Giovanni spent most of her time in war zones recording events on behalf of the voiceless. From Sarajevo to East Timor, from Sierra Leone to Afghanistan, she had been under siege and on the run.

But somewhere along the way she met Bruno, whose spirit and audacity were a match for her own. Their love affair spans nearly a decade and a dozen armed conflicts before they settle in Paris to raise a family. But Janine soon learns that a life lived in war is inevitably haunted. Bruno struggles with physical and emotional pain, with alcoholism. And Janine, a new mother and wife in Paris, suddenly feels the years of fear returning. As a caregiver to Bruno and their infant son, she feels afraid of her work for the first time and doubtful that she can hold all their lives together . . .

With stunning scenes of action, heart-wrenching accounts of profound love, personal loss, and unexpected redemption, Ghosts by Daylight tells the unforgettable story of a passionate life lived to the fullest.
