Summary Note In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era, Rosie McCosh and her three sisters are growing up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. With their neighbours, the two Pitt brothers and the three Pendennis boys, they are The Pals. But these days of childhood camaraderie and adventure are brought to an abrupt end by the outbreak of World War I, in which some will lose their lives, some their loved ones, some their faith, and all of them their innocence. We follow them through the years of the war in the trenches, in air battles, in the hospitals where the women serve with as much passion and nearly as much hardship as the men at the front and its aftermath as the modern world slowly emerges out of the ashes of the old. A wholly immersive novel about a particular time and place, this novel also illuminates the timeless ways in which men and women carry profound loss alongside indelible hope.
