He delivered my sentence with the gusto of a father revealing a special birthday treat to his child. I received the news as swiftly as a guillotine dropping towards a damned man's neck.
In 1959, a heavily pregnant Kit Haugen seeks refuge in a bedroom at her grandmother's old hotel, The Sand Drifts Inn. There she finds a battered old diary, containing a story long-forgotten. It is the tale of her grandfather, Reggie Arkwright, a psychic soldier whose talents were put to use in the First World War. Though Kit has always thought of her grandfather as a hero, she is about to discover the horrifying truth of life and war in 1915.
Set during the battles of Ypres on the Belgian front lines, this novella contributes an extra slice of family history to K.C. Finn's best-selling Synsk saga. The unspoken truth of the Great War awaits for those who, like Kit, are brave enough to discover it.
