At the Edge of Summer
A NovelBook - 2016
Young love blossoms in the French countryside but must stand up to the challenges of distance and WWI in the sweeping second novel from the author of "Letters from Skye." 1911: Fifteen-year-old Clare Ross is sent away from her home in Scotland to Mille Mots. There she finds solace in a friendship with Luc. But with the return of her grandfather, Clare is forced to leave Luc and the comforts of Mille Mots. 1914: Clare decides to help the war effort by volunteering in a Paris studio, making facial prosthetics for injured French soldiers. When a particularly surly young man comes through the clinic, his face is unrecognizable to Clare, but there's something very familiar about him. In the midst of war, and after so many years apart, will Luc and Clare be able to recapture the connection they had that first summer together?
