Top voices in historical fiction deliver an unforgettable collection of short stories set in the aftermath of World War I--featuring bestselling authors such as Hazel Gaynor, Jennifer Robson, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig and edited by Heather Webb.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month...

November 11, 1918. After four long, dark years of fighting, the Great War ends at last, and the world is forever changed. For soldiers, loved ones, and survivors the years ahead stretch with new promise, even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lost.

As families come back together, lovers reunite, and strangers take solace in each other, everyone has a story to tell.

In this moving anthology, nine authors share stories of love, strength, and renewal as hope takes root in a fall of poppies.

New to all of this.
1st hold was incorrectly done, just lucky that book was in that library branch.
now my 2nd try and I can see that this one does not look to be doing any better - I will try to go to the branch today to see if my attempt has worked. mention of the book being there...
we will see.

Delightful to read, even while on a treadmill at 5 a.m.
