Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Hazel Gaynor has joined with Heather Webb to create this unforgettably romantic novel of the Great War.
August 1914. England is at war. As Evie Elliott watches her brother, Will, and his best friend, Thomas Harding, depart for the front, she believes - as everyone does - that it will be over by Christmas, when the trio plan to celebrate the holiday among the romantic cafés of Paris.
But as history tells us, it all happened so differently....
Evie and Thomas experience a very different war. Frustrated by life as a privileged young lady, Evie longs to play a greater part in the conflict - but how? - and as Thomas struggles with the unimaginable realities of war, he also faces personal battles back home, where War Office regulations on press reporting cause trouble at his father's newspaper business. Through their letters Evie and Thomas share their greatest hopes and fears - and grow ever fonder from afar. Can love flourish amid the horror of the First World War, or will fate intervene?
Christmas 1968. With failing health, Thomas returns to Paris - a cherished packet of letters in hand - determined to lay to rest the ghosts of his past. But one final letter is waiting for him....
Full narrative cast includes Alex Wyndham, Billie Fulford-Brown, Morag Sims, Gary Furlong, Greg Wagland, Antony Ferguson, Derek Perkins, Jane Copland, and Mary Jane Wells.

Lovely

This audiobook is beautiful. The voices give it shape, warmth, character, depth. I couldn’t stop listening! It was if I was mesmerically floating in the air between Tom and Evie, anxious to pass on their next letter, waiting with bated breath at all it would contain and all that would be left unsaid.

There are no words to describe this...

There are no words to describe this story but I will try. I loved this story. Sometimes there are stories that don't leave you, I think this is one of them! It grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let go, I wanted to find out how everything was going to work out but I didn't want it to end. The narration was perfect!
