Top voices in historical fiction deliver an unforgettable collection of short stories set in the aftermath of World War I—featuring bestselling authors such as Hazel Gaynor, Jennifer Robson, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig and edited by Heather Webb.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month...

November 11, 1918. After four long, dark years of fighting, the Great War ends at last, and the world is forever changed. For soldiers, loved ones, and survivors the years ahead stretch with new promise, even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lost.

As families come back together, lovers reunite, and strangers take solace in each other, everyone has a story to tell.

In this moving anthology, nine authors share stories of love, strength, and renewal as hope takes root in a fall of poppies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it I bought this book because I had just finished reading all of Jennifer Robson's books and was hungry for more from her. Her contribution to this collection if short stories was exactly what I expect from her. There is romance and there is historical context. The other contributors were outstanding too and I will be looking for other books by a few of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book since reading Jennifer Robson's Moonlight Over Paris and realized that we were going to get Lucy's story, needless to say that was one of my favourites of this book. What I did not expect was the wide range of stories, each story was unique, set in different locations, written from different perspectives, it was such an interesting read. Some of the authors I have read before, others were new to me. For anyone with an interest in WWI this is a recommended read.
