        March 1, 2016
        The ending of WWI on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 brought with it a surge of conflicting emotions. As the word was delivered through battlefield telegrams, ringing church bells in villages depleted of young men, and final, senseless acts of destruction, young men, old women, new mothers, and grieving fathers would all find commonality in the impact of war and the fragile peace that was bestowed. Now, nine internationally acclaimed authors reflect on that mystical day and time in stories of the regret, hope, valor, secrecy, redemption, and mystery that united soldiers and civilians, parents and orphans, lovers and enemies whose lives were forever changed by the Great War. From Marci Jefferson's moody tale of a courageous young girl seeking to avenge her family's honor in The Daughter of Belgium to Hazel Gaynor's incandescent confluence of births and deaths in Hush, and including tales by Kate Kerrigan, Beatriz Williams, and Laura Willig, this collection offers an atmospheric homage to one of history's most emotionally devastating episodes.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
