Summary

A thrilling fight for justice against the odds and a compelling love story in the aftermath of the First World War.
Philomena Bligh’s fiancé, Dan, has been shot. The First World War claimed many lives and so his death is not, in its own way, surprising. But Dan was shot in the minutes after the Armistice. The war was over.
In March 1919, over Dan’s birthday, Philomena travels to London to meet the men who were with him when he died, determined to uncover what happened. What she discovers is more shocking than she’d ever imagined. Dan’s best friend, Jonathan, tells her that Dan was shot by a British officer over a gambling debt. There is no proof and all records of Jonathan’s accusation have been destroyed.
Set against a backdrop of London in the aftermath of the Great War, a time of upheaval, grief and wanton escapism, this is not just an inspirational account of what it means to be a hero, but also a breathtaking love story.
