Summary
In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era the McCosh sisters--Christabel, Ottilie, Rosie and Sophie--grow up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. On one side, their neighbors are the proper Pendennis family, recently arrived from Baltimore, whose close-in-age boys--Sidney, Albert and Ashbridge--shake their father's hand at breakfast and address him as "sir." On the other side is the Pitt family: a "resolutely French" mother, a former navy captain father, and two brothers, Archie and Daniel, who are clearly "going to grow up into a pair of daredevils and adventurers." In childhood this band is inseparable, but the days of careless camaraderie are brought to an abrupt halt by the outbreak of The Great War, in which everyone will play a part

Summary
In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era, Rosie McCosh and her three sisters are growing up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. With their neighbors, the two Pitt brothers and the three Pendennis boys, they are The Pals. But these days of childhood camaraderie and adventure are brought to an abrupt end by the outbreak of World War I, in which some will lose their lives, some their loved ones, some their faith, and all of them their innocence. We follow them through the years of the war in the trenches, in air battles, in the hospitals where the women serve with as much passion and nearly as much hardship as the men at the front and its aftermath as the modern world slowly emerges out of the ashes of the old. A wholly immersive novel about a particular time and place, this novel also illuminates the timeless ways in which men and women carry profound loss alongside indelible hope.
