Mail: The End of Innocence by Allegra Jordan
Came in Yesterday!
Sent to me by Sourcebooks Landmark, I will read and review this book. I have heard many good things and read several great reviews. I cannot wait to start this story that I find worth reading and share my own review with you all. Here is the synopsis that helped spiral me inward:
On the eve of WWI, two students fall in love in Harvard's hallowed halls and must face a world at war from opposing sides.
Helen Windship Brooks is struggling to find herself at the world-renowned Harvard-Radcliffe University when brooding German poet Wils bursts into her life. As they fall deeply in love on the brink of WWI, anti-German sentiments mount and Wils' future at Harvard-and in America-is in increasing danger. When Wils is called to fight for the Kaiser, Helen must decide if she is ready to fight her own battle for what she loves most.
From Harvard's hallowed halls to Belgium's war-ravaged battlefields, The End of Innocence is a powerful new vision of finding love and hope in a violent, broken world.
It is set to be published on August 26th, 2014.
