Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The disastrous 1917 explosion of a munitions ship in Halifax Harbor, Nova Scotia, forms the backdrop to this “rich, abundantly humane love story” (Chicago Tribune)-”a powerful piece of work” (Washington Post Book World) that marks an “auspicious fiction debut for an already accomplished author and award-winning journalist” (Chicago Sun-Times).

Synopsis:

The whirlwind of World War I provides the canvas on which a vivid love triangle is played out in the first novel by the bestselling author of "The Story of English". When a clergyman discovers the sexually explicit diary of a young woman, he and a friend are swept into a vortex of conflicting emotions as they try to discover her identity.
