This paper back contains a collection of First World War stories through the eyes of young women, and is written by a variety of authors.
1914: War has broken out across Europe and beyond. Nothing will ever be the same again for those caught up in the conflict.
This collection of short stories explores how the First World War changed and shaped the lives of women for ever. A courageous nurse risks her life at the Front Line; a young woman discovers independence and intrigue in wartime London; and a grief-stricken widow defends her homeland amidst the destruction of war.
Through these and other tales, some of today’s leading writers for young people present moving portraits of loss and grief, and of hope overcoming terrible odds.
