In 1913 Paris half the city expects war while the other half scoffs at the possibility.
Henri Noisette who works at the Ministry of War, expects war and sends his wife and two younger children to a small village in northern France. By late 1914, instead of a safe haven, the village is less than thirty miles from the front.
As war unfolds, Henri’s daughter, Helene, grows up quickly and in 1917 falls in love with a young soldier. The novel examines love and loss, duty and sacrifice and the unexpected consequence of lies.
