The day war is declared, Mary North leaves finishing school unfinished, goes straight to the War Office, and signs up. Tom Shaw decides to ignore the war—until he learns his roommate Alistair Heath has unexpectedly enlisted. Then the conflict can no longer be avoided. When Mary and Alistair meet, it is love, as well as war, that will test them in ways they could not have imagined, entangling there lives in violence and passion, friendship and deception, inexorably shaping their hopes and dreams.
We are delighted to be joined by bestselling author Chris Cleave, with the release of his fourth novel, ‘Everyone Brave is Forgiven’. In a powerful combination of both humour and heartbreak, this dazzling novel weaves little-known history, and a perfect love story, through the vast sweep of the Second World War.
Chris’ debut novel, ‘Incendiary’, was an international bestseller and multiple prize-winner. His second and third novels, ‘The Other Hand’ and ‘Gold’, found phenomenal worldwide success, including a Costa-shortlist and a New York Times #1 bestseller.
