Publication Date31 July 2018
Book DescriptionFrom New York Times bestselling author Charles Todd comes a haunting tale that explores the impact of World War I on all who witnessed it-officers, soldiers, doctors, and battlefield nurses like Bess Crawford. Though the Great War is nearing its end, the fighting rages on. While waiting for transport back to her post, Bess Crawford meets Captain Alan Travis from the island of Barbados. Later, when he's brought into her forward aid station disoriented from a head wound, Bess is alarmed that he believes his distant English cousin, Lieutenant James Travis, shot him. Then the Captain is brought back to the aid station with a more severe wound, once more angrily denouncing the Lieutenant as a killer. But when it appears that James Travis couldn't have shot him, the Captain's sanity is questioned. Still, Bess wonders how such an experienced officer could be so wrong. On leave in England, Bess finds the Captain strapped to his bed in a clinic for brain injuries. Horrified by his condition, Bess and Sergeant Major Simon Brandon travel to James Travis's home in Suffolk, to learn more about the baffling relationship between these two cousins. Her search will lead this smart, capable, and compassionate young woman into unexpected danger, and bring her face to face with the visible and invisible wounds of war that not even the much-longed for peace can heal.
Editorial ReviewA Casualty of War is another masterful work in this series, and I cannot recommend it enough. -- "Todd's meticulous research... illustrates the toll the war has taken on the battle-weary military as well as the nurses and doctors, the sacrifices of the residents, [and] the citizens' valiant struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy. . . . . A vivid and personal look at WWI." -- "Intensely personal, as all great stories should be." -- Anne Perry, Internationally Bestselling Author "Harsh period attitudes toward traumatic stress and the exhaustion of a long war add poignancy to Todd's satisfying puzzle of identity and inheritance." -- Publishers Weekly "A Casualty of War is [Charles] Todd's strongest war book..." -- Washington Times "[Readers] will love the heroine for her courage and determination." -- Kirkus Reviews "The latest Crawford mystery is rich in character and period detail, with a solidly constructed story that should keep readers immersed in the action." -- Booklist "As always in this immensely satisfying series, Todd heightens the mystery by setting it within a war-shattered world of battered villages, barren farms and broken people." -- Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review on THE SHATTERED TREE Praise for The Shattered Tree: "Admirable, courageous and occasionally reckless, Bess ranks among the best of fictional amateur sleuths. [Todd] again creates a thought-provoking novel that evokes the terrors and suspicions of war." -- Richmond Times-Dispatch "A superb whodunit-just when you think you have it figured out, Todd throws a curve-and a moving evocation of a world at war." -- Richmond Times-Dispatch
