About the Book

Painstakingly researched and extremely well written, this is a novel that moves deftly and easily from one time period to another and yet still allows the novel to retain an overall sense of cohesion.
Shooting stars, kisses, grenades and the lumbering tanks. And the shrieking skies and the shaking comrades: 'Up and over, lads!' And I know it is time again to go into madness.

It is 1915 and eighteen-year-old Maurice Roche is serving in the Great War. A century later, Maurice's great-great nephew, eighteen-year-old Oliver, is fighting his own war -- against himself.

When Oliver is given Maurice's war diary, he has little interest in its contents -- except for Maurice's sketches throughout, which are intriguing to Oliver who is also a talented artist.

As he reads more of the diary though, Oliver discovers that, despite living in different times, there are other similarities between them: doubts, heartbreak, loyalty, and the courage to face the darkest of times.

From award-winning children's and YA author Libby Hathorn comes a moving, timely and very personal book examining the nature of valour, the power of family and the endurance of love.

This is a story we should never forget.
