Description

France, 1915: Lieutenant Tom Donald envies everything about fellow officer Frank Foden - his confidence, his easy manner with the men in the trenches, the affectionate letters from his wife. Frank shares these letters happily, drawing Tom into a vicarious friendship with a woman he's never met. Although the bonds of friendship forged under fire are strong, Tom can't be so open with Frank - he's attracted to men and could never confess that to anyone.

When Frank is killed in no-man's-land, he leaves behind a mysterious request for Tom: to deliver a sealed letter to a man named Palmer. Tom undertakes the commission while on leave - and discovers that almost everything he thought he knew about Frank is a lie....

A Great Story...

Charlie Cochrane's tale may have been set in WWI but the experience can be applied even to today's lives...at least mine. I related so much with Tom Donald and his experiences of never telling the one that you love...Kevin Stillwell's narration was fantastic and made the characters come to life. A great story...

Sweet novella - very good narration

This is a sweet romance. The author successfully casts you into the cadence of an epistolary relationship set in the years of World War I. Sufficiently self-contained but leaves you wanting (in a good way) to know more about the characters and their lives.

Beautifully done

Such a lovely WWI story. The narration was amazing and I just adore how it unfolded. Anything extra would have felt totally fake.

Dull

I don't understand why this book gets such good reviews. It took me ages to get through it, even though it is a short book. It only picked up for me at the very end. I found it quite dull, mostly because of the narration, I think. It seemed so very slow. Sorry, not for me.
