about

Journalist Alex Dyer made his name covering the bloody horrors of the European trenches. Yet even after the Great War is over, he cannot shake the guilt he feels for not serving on the front lines like his dearest childhood friend, Ted Eden. Worse still, Alex cannot put to rest the emotions that gnaw at him from the inside: his feelings for Clare, Ted's wife—a woman they both have loved more

A masterful debut novel from the acclaimed author of The Hidden Life of Otto Frank, Carol Ann Lee's Winter of the World combines fascinating historical detail and color with breathtaking invention. Recalling the fire of the battlefield and the nightmare of the trenches, it brilliantly evokes a volatile time when life was frozen in the present tense and looking forward was the only thing more painful than looking back.

Editorial Reviews

?By the very nature of Lee?s material it is hard to read without tears, especially when you arrive at the moment of the betrayal and its aftermath. Otto was the only survivor of the Franks? journey into hell, and Lee?s dogged research pays off with the discovery of a diary he kept after the liberation of Auschwitz. Together with the letters that he sent to his mother in Switzerland, Lee builds up a memorable portrait of a man struggling out of the valley of death.?(The Guardian (The Hidden Life of Otto Frank))
