Remembrance Day

(2009)
A novel by

 
 
Lest we forget... A poignant new tale from the English Maeve Binchy. It's 2003 and at over 100 years old, Selma Dixon is the last link to the hidden truth behind her village's refusal to honour its war dead. 1914 saw the Yorkshire village of West Sharland send its men off to fight, including Selma's brothers and her sweetheart Guy. But when Guy is badly wounded and returns home on leave, the horrific reality of war is fully realised in the village. By none more so than Guy's mother, who, in a fit of protective madness, secretly sends Angus, Guy's identical twin brother who was medically unfit to enlist, back to fight in his place. Horrified, Guy tries to reveal the truth about his identity. Back in France, reckless and naive Angus is bitterly unprepared for war, and when his actions seal not only his fate but that of Selma's brother, whose name becomes tainted in the village, Selma's life is changed forever. Forced to start a new life in America, Selma is oblivious to why her family's name is mud back at home. Until the past comes back to haunt her and the names of the dead must be spoken once more...
