RT Rating

Perry's fourth installment in her World War I series is brimming with realism as details of life on the Western Front in 1917 come chillingly alive. Reavley siblings Judith, Matthew and Joseph witness the devastation of war, and the lines between good and evil are not black and white but blurred in shades of gray.

Joseph, a British chaplain along the Western Front, becomes immersed in the mysterious death of Major Northrup, a difficult leader who was apparently murdered by his own men. Matthew, an espionage agent, is searching for the Peacemaker, the man he believes may be responsible for the murder of their parents. And their sister Judith no longer enjoys her days as a debutante. She's on the front lines, driving an ambulance to rescue wounded men. (Ballantine, Mar., 336 pp., $21.95)
