Only Water Between: A Family Story from the Great War (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Containing unpublished extracts and images of personal letters and photos, Only Water Between depicts a unique - yet all-too-common - story of family separation during the First World War. It describes the impact of soldiers missing in action, and the remarkable resilience of families left behind. Lost for many years, even the letters themselves offer a unique story of discovery and reunion.

Angela Clare portrays a relationship of intimacy, trust and strength under pressure. As Jack writes to Gert, it was a time when there was 'only water between'.
