Ta dah! Here it is. The beautiful cover for FALL OF POPPIES.
What do you think? We all absolutely love it. For most of the nine authors who have contributed, this is our first time writing as part of an anthology. There is something very lovely about coming together with a group of other authors whose work you admire, and working together to produce a whole new book! The idea for this collection of stories, set around Armistice Day in WW1, started sometime around the end of 2014, the brainchild of writer and editor, Heather Webb (BECOMING JOSEPHINE and RODIN’S LOVER). We are all so proud to see this beautiful collection of stories come together at a time when the world looks back over the centenary years of the Great War, and we are excited about the book’s release early next year.
About the Book
Top voices in historical fiction deliver an intensely moving collection of short stories about loss, longing, and hope 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.
A squadron commander searches for meaning in the tattered photo of a girl he’s never met…
A Belgian rebel hides from the world, only to find herself nursing the enemy…
A young airman marries a stranger to save her honor—and prays to survive long enough to love her…
The peace treaty signed on November 11, 1918, may herald the end of the Great War but for its survivors, the smoke is only beginning to clear. Picking up the pieces of shattered lives will take courage, resilience, and trust.
Within crumbled city walls and scarred souls, war’s echoes linger. But when the fighting ceases, renewal begins…and hope takes root in a fall of poppies.
The book will be released on March 1st, 2016 in the US and April 28th in the UK/Ireland, but is available to pre-order now at the following links.
