Summary

Three women, once enemies. Their secrets will unite them.

The First World War is over. The war-torn area of Flanders near Ypres is no longer home to troops but groups of tourists. Controversial battlefield tourism now brings hundreds of people to the area, all desperate to witness firsthand where their loved ones fell.

At the Hotel de la Paix in the small village of Hoppestadt, three women arrive, searching for traces of the men they have loved and lost.

Ruby is just 21, a shy Englishwoman looking for the grave of her husband. Alice is only a little older but brimming with confidence; she has travelled all the way from America, convinced her brother is in fact still alive. Then there's Martha and her son, Otto, who are not all they seem to be....

The three women in Liz Trenow's In Love and War may have very different backgrounds, but they are united in their search for reconciliation: to resolve themselves to what the war took from them but also to what life might still promise for the future....

Very poignant.

Just finished listening to this great book on 11/112019. Very poignant reading, I felt I was sharing the characters journey with them. Wonderful author. I hope she keeps writing lots more books. Looking forward to listening to her next book. Thank you Liz.
