Beautifully written and thoroughly absorbing. A masterpiece from Carol Ann Lee.

Painstakingly detailed story that explores two mysteries; the most compelling of which is the mystery of the human heart. Would be great if you like Evelyn Waugh, or even Faulk's Birdsong. Don't think twice; buy it and discover a hidden gem.

as a rule, I don't read novels, especially love stories! However, this book concentrates less on the lovey dovey stuff and more on the immediate lives of the characters & the consequences of the eternal 'love triangle' during wartime.
Its opens with a stunning account of the return of the 'Unknown Warrior' & the subsequent funeral.
It then flashes back to WWI & The 3 main characters, a soldier, a nurse & a war correspondent.
C.A.L gives very lucid accounts of what it must of been like to be out in the trenches & touches on the advancements that were made in both weaponery (gas) & medically (plastic surgery)....OK, so in reality nobody knows who the 'Unknown Warrior' is & a little 'poetic' writer's licence is used....But it is a 'novel' & none the worse for it......A cracking, good read!
