LONDON, ENGLAND, July 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- About the Book:
In this story, it is Autumn, 1914. Clara, a passionate young London wife and the mother of two small girls, has seen both her husband and the man she loves go off to fight on the front in World War I. The inept generals take over from the inept politicians, and so the war drags on, while Clara waits fearfully to see which, if either of her men, will return.
It looks as though Clara has lost her chance for happiness. Can she find the courage for one last desperate attempt to make her dreams come true?
