(2019)
A novel by

 
 
Read the novel New York Times best-selling author of The Alice Network Kate Quinn called "easily one of the best novels I have read all year". A sweeping, multilayered 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 US Army, and a Belgian orphan with a gorgeous voice and a devastating past. Their story, as told by 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, it's no match for the transcendent power of love.

Author Julie Berry's critically acclaimed writing has been called "haunting and unforgettable" by New York Times best-selling author of Salt to the Sea Ruta Sepetys and "utterly original and instantly engrossing" by Publishers Weekly.

Genre: Young Adult Fiction
