From the Editor

This beautiful story of love and devotion opened my eyes to the lasting trauma that so many soldiers carry off the battlefields. We’ve made great strides in treatment. But during World War I we didn’t have a clear understanding of the phenomenon. Many blamed the soldiers themselves, accusing them of cowardice and malingering.

In 1918, Rudy’s brother Edgar goes missing in France. Unable to shake his grief, Rudy is determined to unravel exactly what happened to his brother. Suspicion surrounds his death, and Mariette, the woman who claims to be Edgar’s widow, complicates Rudy’s quest for the truth. He falls hopelessly in love with her, but he’s tortured by guilt and unanswered questions. If Edgar is still alive, where is he? If he’s not, how can Rudy and his family make sense of his death?

In a Field of Blue both cast a light on the lasting effects of war and filled me with hope, showing how far a man will go to fulfill his promise to honor and protect those he loves.

- Jodi Warshaw, Editor


Product description

Product Description

From the bestselling author of The Road Beyond Ruin comes a novel about a family torn apart by grief and secrets, then pulled back together by hope in the wake of World War I.

England 1922. It’s been four years since Rudy’s brother Edgar went missing in war-torn France. Still deep in mourning and grappling with unanswered questions, Rudy and his mother struggle to move on. When the enigmatic Mariette arrives unexpectedly at the family’s manor claiming to be Edgar’s widow, and the mother of his child, Rudy urges her to stay, hoping she’ll shed light on the missing pieces.

Captivated by Mariette, Rudy finds that their mutual loss and grief bind them…as does the possibility of new love. But Mariette’s revelations bring more questions than answers about Edgar’s death. Suspicions threaten to divide Rudy’s already fractured family, setting him on a quest for the truth that takes him from England to France and beyond.

In his search, Rudy is forced to confront the tragedies of war and the realities of the brother he’s lost and the woman he’s found. Will the truth set him free to find peace, or will it forever shadow his future?
