Rumors abound through the trenches, aid stations, and hospitals that war would soon be over after 4 long years. Bess Crawford was shot by a sniper and is sent to Paris to finish her recovery. At the aid stations had questions about on one of the soldiers’ nationality and she caught a glimpse of him on a Paris street. Bess begins looking into the soldier’s background. Locating his village Bess found a story that goes back to his childhood. It is one of greed, betrayal, hate and Mother’s. You will be glued to the pages as you follow Bess through the twists and turns of Philippe Moreau’s life. I highly recommend this book and series.
