In 1916, William Manderson, a young poet and infantryman, leaves Liverpool for the Western Front where his older brother is already serving. During the build-up to the great offensive on the Somme, William keeps a journal, sends intimate letters to Jack’s wife Elizabeth and writes poetry reflecting his experiences. (Amazon)
Much of the novel is set in Liverpool and on the Wirral, at a hospital for recuperating soldiers.
