From the author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand comes a novel set in the early days of World War I. After the death of her father, Beatrice Nash finds a post as a Latin teacher in Rye on the coast of England. An influx of Belgian refugees is just the beginning of the many changes war brings, and we are drawn into the lives of Beatrice, Hugh, and Daniel as each tries to find their way in a changing world.
