Item Notes:About the Book The Printz Honor-winning author of The Passion of Dolssa delivers a sweeping, multi-layered romance, set in the perilous days of World Wars I and II. An effervescent confection of a novel filled with humor, tragedy, romance, and myth.--Kate Quinn, New York Times-bestselling author of The Alice Network. 1/4. Book Synopsis A New York Times bestseller! A sweeping, multi-layered romance set in the perilous days of World Wars I and II, where gods hold the fates--and the hearts--of four mortals in their hands. They are Hazel, James, Aubrey, and Colette. A classical pianist from London, a British would-be architect turned soldier, a Harlem-born ragtime genius in the U.S. Army, and a Belgian orphan with a gorgeous voice and a devastating past. Their story, as told by the goddess Aphrodite, who must spin the tale or face judgment on Mount Olympus, is filled with hope and heartbreak, prejudice and passion, and reveals that, though War is a formidable force, its no match for the transcendent power of Love. Author Julie Berrys critically acclaimed writing has been called haunting and unforgettable by New York Times bestselling author of Salt to the Sea Ruta Sepetys and utterly original and instantly engrossing by Publishers Weekly.
