Praise for Unravelled

‘A sweeping story of love and war with much of the style of Brief Encounter and the passionate intensity of Birdsong. The novel moves from poignant reminiscence, to the carnage of the trenches, to the unravelling of life and memory when a former Canadian serviceman involved in the battle for Vimy Ridge reflects on the loss of his comrades and is caught up again in the romance that saved his sanity. Told from his perspective and that of his wife, the slide into another world war test the bonds of their marriage to the limit.’ – Jenny Barden, author of Mistress of the Sea

‘M.K. Tod’s skilful debut novel spanning two world wars deftly illuminates the subtle stirrings of the human heart as movingly as it depicts the horrors of battle. Poignant and generous, Unravelled gives us Edward, scarred by war, and Ann, alive with longing, two people bound by the heartbreaking bonds of a marriage forged in the crucible of secrets and war.’ – Barbara Kyle, author of Blood Between Queens

‘A beautiful rendering of the healing journey of two war torn hearts.’ – Elisabeth Storrs, author of The Golden Dice

‘An engrossing historical saga. With narrative insight, compassion and a strong sense of time and place, M.K. Tod observes the inner workings of a marriage as it’s affected by the uncertainty and tumult of both world wars.’ – Sarah Johnson, Historical Novel Society Book Review Editor and author of two historical fiction guides

‘A compulsive and convincing read.’ – Helen Hollick, author of historical fiction and historical adventure

‘M.K. Tod’s Unravelled beautifully evokes an era of heightened tension, in which her characters’ decisions become all the more heart-rending.’ – Anne Easter Smith, author of A Rose for the Crown

‘Immersive, authentic and absorbing, UNRAVELLED is a great read. M.K. Tod gives us meticulously researched insights into Great War and the far-reaching effects such conflicts have on the men and women touched by them.’ – Jane Johnson, author of The Sultan’s Wife
