As scholarship students at Camden School for Girls, Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden became fast friends. But as adults, their interests - and friendship - soon diverge: Kezia looks forward to a life of domesticity with Thea's farmer brother, Tom, while Thea throws her efforts behind England's burgeoning suffrage movement. But when war breaks out in 1914 and Tom enlists to fight, Kezia and Thea find their lives taking unexpected turns, challenging their youthful ideals, testing their fortitude...and rekindling their friendship just when they need it most. As Kezia and Thea struggle to discover their purpose in a turbulent new world, Tom endeavors to retain his own identity in an army determined to obliterate him. Thoughtful and poignant, Jacqueline Winspear's wartime tale is a deft exploration of friendship, family, and the lies we tell to protect the ones we love. (KG)
