The Dust that Falls from Dreams (Paperback)

Synopsis

A return to the epic romance, heroism, history and warm and eccentric cast of characters that made CAPTAIN CORELLI'S MANDOLIN such an extraordinary hit (2.5 million copies sold).



In the brief golden years before the outbreak of World War I, Rosie McCosh and her three very different sisters are growing up in an eccentric household in Kent, with their neighbours the Pitt boys on one side and the Pendennis boys on the other. But their days of childhood adventure are shadowed by the approach of the conflict that will engulf them on the cusp of adulthood.



When the boys end up scattered along the Western Front, Rosie is left confused by her love for two young men - one an infantry soldier and one a flying ace. Can she, and her sisters, build new lives out of the opportunities and devastations that follow the Great War?

Customer Reviews

This again is a story about war and death, love and loyalty. De Bernière is a master at showing the best in human beings in atrocious circumstances such as war, more over, the Great War. Again there is a love story which comes to naught because of said war. Whilst the writing is beautiful, it does not have the force of captain Corelli's mandolin but it is however and enjoyable story
