Last Christmas in Paris

Hazel Gaynor
New York Times bestselling author Hazel Gaynor has joined with Heather Webb to create this unforgettably romantic novel of the Great War. August 1914. England is at war. As Evie Elliott watches her brother, Will, and his best friend, Thomas Harding, depart for the front, she believes-as everyone does-that it will be over by Christmas, when the trio plan to celebrate the holiday among the romantic cafes of Paris. But as history tells us, it all happened so differently...Evie and Thomas experience a very different war. Frustrated by life as a privileged young lady, Evie longs to play a greater part in the conflict-but how?-and as Thomas struggles with the unimaginable realities of war he also faces personal battles back home where War Office regulations on press reporting cause trouble at his father's newspaper business. Through their letters, Evie and Thomas share their greatest hopes and fears-and grow ever fonder from afar. Can love flourish amid the horror of the First World War, or will fate intervene? Christmas 1968. With failing health, Thomas returns to Paris-a cherished packet of letters in hand-determined to lay to rest the ghosts of his past. But one final letter is waiting for him...

Det här var en sorglig, fin och gripande bok om en flicka som skriver brev till sin bror och hans barndomsvän som har gått med i Första världskriget. De tror att kriget ska vara över till julen 1914 och gör upp planer om att åka till Paris och fira jul där. Men som bekant tog kriget inte slut på flera år, och de tvingas växa upp och möta olika fasor under krigets gång.
Jag gillade boken men hade velat veta mer vad som hände sen. Så mycket byggdes upp och flera händelser drogs ut så länge, men när kriget väl var slut hoppade man direkt till 60-talet och en kort epilog där. Lite för abrupt avslut.
