Daring debutante Vivian Foster has London society at her feet – all she needs is a proposal to complete her triumphant season. A moment’s indiscretion causes her world to crumble, just as the country around her erupts into a devastating war. Everything seems bleak.
Until she meets Howard. Celebrated playwright Howard Henderson wants no part in the killing of a faceless enemy, but refusing to fight will lead to imprisonment, even death. He wishes he could convey the depth of inhumanity he witnessed at the Front but the words won’t come.
Until he meets Vivian. Now they’ve found each other – and something worth fighting for. But will the war demand that sacrificing their future together is the only way to honour their love?
