All the Love and the Joy of Days Gone by Had Turned Against Him in a Soul-Destroying Fury
Convinced that airplanes are about to change the nature of military warfare, Lieutenant Lance Winslow of the British Royal Flying Corps goes to France to train with the best fliers in the world. On Christmas Eve of 1908, he meets Noelle Laurent on the snowy streets of Paris and falls in love at first sight. Their marriage brings tremendous joy into his life, but their love cannot stop the Great War's approach...nor can his plane stop every German bomber that crosses the English Channel.
In the spring of 1914, Josephine Hellinger quits her job with the New York Times to become a free-lance war correspondent in France. Knowing that she would never be sent as a female journalist on such a dangerous assignment, she is emboldened to strike out on her own to cover the war through her frontline stories and photographs.
When Josephine meets Lance Winslow, he is hardly the same pilot who married a lovely French bride five years before. Out of the bitterness of personal tragedy, he lives only to hate Germans and to kill as many as he can in combat. Can Josephine make a difference before it's too late?
