Product description


"A compelling and emotionally charged debut about the painful aftermath of war and the ways - small, brave or commonplace - that keep us going. It touches feelings we know, and settings - dance halls, war front, queues outside the grocer - that we don't. I loved it." (Rachel Joyce, author of THE UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY)

"A tender and timely novel, full of compassion and quiet insight. The author gives us a moving and original glimpse into the haunted peace after the Great War, her characters drawn by the gravity of the unmarked, the unknown and perhaps, finally, the unhoped for." (Chris Cleave, author of THE OTHER HAND)

"Wake is powerful and humane; a novel that charms and beguiles. Anna Hope's characters are so real; flawed and searching, and her prose so natural, one almost forgets how very great a story she is telling." (Sadie Jones, author of THE OUTCAST)

"Superb ... beautifully crafted" (Irish Times)

"A moving novel about the aftershock of the 1914-1918 conflict. ... unlikely many will prove better than Anna Hope's Wake" (Sunday Times)

"Absorbing and timely" (Daily Mail)

"Wise and insightful" (Sunday Express)

"A hit, we think!" (Simon Mayo Bookclub)

"Impressive and poignant ... moving and rewarding" (Woman and Home)

"Poignant ... stays long in the memory" (Choice)

Book Description

Unfolding over five days leading up to 11 November, 1920, a powerful debut telling of three women who have lost loved-ones, set against the journey of the Unknown Soldier from Northern France to the Cenotaph. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
