Book Blurb:

"In 1914 Paris half the city expects war while the other half scoffs at the possibility.

With knowledge gained from his role at the War Department, Henri Noisette fears that Germany may soon attack Paris. He therefore sends his wife, mother and two younger children to Beaufort, a small village in northern France. By late 1914, instead of a safe haven, Beaufort is less than twenty miles from the front.

As war unfolds, Henri’s daughter, Helene, grows up quickly and in 1917 falls in love with Edward Jamieson, a young Canadian soldier.

The novel examines love and loss, duty and sacrifice and the unexpected consequence of lies."

Here are some choices for purchasing the book: Amazon US, Amazon UK, B&N.

What began as an effort to understand her grandparents’ lives blossomed into a full time occupation as a writer. Her debut novel is Unraveled: Two wars, Two affairs. One Marriage.
