USA TODAY and #1 bestselling author Genevieve Graham brings to life a little-known chapter of history in this unforgettable story of survival and sacrifice about a young woman and a wounded soldier caught in the horrors of the Great War and its aftermath.
In the summer of 1916, Private Daniel Baker marches into battle with the boys of Nova Scotia's 25th Battalion. Out of brutal necessity, Danny has steeled himself against the horrors of war, but he is completely unprepared to meet the love of his life in war-torn France.
Audrey Poulin has the soul of an artist. She lives alone with her grandmother in the quiet French countryside, where she finds joy in her brush and palette. By chance, she encounters Danny and the handsome young soldier captures her heart and inspires her painting.
But when Danny is gravely wounded at the Battle of the Somme mere months later, the couple's future is thrown into uncertainty. Soon, he and Audrey find themselves struggling to build a new life in Halifax, a city grieving its lost men. As the grey winter of 1917 sets in, Danny's shellshock and Audrey's feelings of isolation continue to grow, pulling the two apart just as a new catastrophe threatens their existence.
From the battlefields of France to the shores of Halifax, Tides of Honour is a moving novel about love and loyalty-and a testament to the power of second chances.
