A sweeping, multi-layered romance with a divine twist filled with humor, tragedy, romance, and myth, this is a novel we recommend grabbing a box of tissues for, as you enter a tale of four lovers during the chaos and terror of World War I.
An incredibly unique novel, woven from the perspective of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, as she tells their stories in a luxe Manhattan hotel room at the height of World War II, thirty years after these four lovers' fates collide. She seeks to answer the age-old question: Why are Love and War eternally drawn to one another?
Her quest for a conclusion that will satisfy her jealous husband uncovers a multi-threaded tale of prejudice, trauma, and music and reveals that War is no match for the power of Love. Follow the tale of a shy English pianist, a gentle architect turned sharpshooter, a French singer scarred by German atrocities, and a brash musician bound for one of the all-African-American regiments heading overseas.
Hovering over this love-struck war-bound quartet is the goddess of love herself, trying to ensure each of them their happily ever after in the midst of bloodshed, and fending off the impatient gods in her life who are more interested in death and war and revenge than love.
Heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once, this novel will enlighten you with the love stories that even the Goddess of Love couldn't forget. Join us as we pair some of our most remarkable and impactful gifts as we journey through this historical, mythological and beautiful tale together.
