Ghosts and the Great War collide in this humorous, heartbreaking speculative novel, in which a combat nurse searches for her missing brother. In the fall of 1917, Freddie Iven wakes after an explosion to find himself trapped underground with a wounded enemy soldier. In the early winter of 1918, Laura Iven receives a notice that her brother has died in combat, but something about it doesn't make any sense. In a world torn apart by war, the two siblings must decide whether life is still worth fighting for.
