From the beloved John Boyne, a powerful, poignant novel about how
we are to be good in the face of disaster.
September 1919: Twenty-year-old Tristan Sadler takes a train from
London to Norwich to deliver some letters to Marian Bancroft.
During the Great War, Tristan fought alongside Marian''s brother
Will who, in 1917, laid down his gun on the battlefield, declared
himself a conscientious objector and was shot as a traitor, an act
which brought shame and dishonour on the Bancroft family. But the
letters are not the real reason for Tristan''s visit. He holds a
secret deep in his soul. One that he is desperate to unburden
himself of to Marian, if he can only find the courage.
As they stroll through the streets of a city still coming to terms
with the end of the war, he recalls his friendship with Will, from
the training ground at Aldershot to the trenches of Northern
France, and speaks of how the intensity of their friendship brought
him from brief moments of happiness and self-discovery to long
periods of despair and pain.
