New UK & AUS Release: The Storms of War by Kate Williams

Tomorrow is the release day of Kate Williams's historical novel The Storms of War! I just received a digital copy for review and will post my thoughts as soon as I finish it. I'll also keep checking for a US publication date. In the meantime, Book Depository has free shipping to the US in case you are itching to read it!

Pub Date: July 3, 2014 | Orion | Hardcover

The first novel in Kate Williams's groundbreaking new historical series which marks the 100 year anniversary of the Great War. For fans of ATONEMENT, BIRDSONG and DOWNTON ABBEY.

In the idyllic early summer of 1914, life is good for the de Witt family. Rudolf and Verena are planning the wedding of their daughter, Emmeline, while their eldest son Arthur is studying in Paris and Michael is just back from his first term at Cambridge. Celia, the youngest of the de Witt children, is on the brink of adulthood, and secretly dreams of escaping her carefully mapped out future and exploring the world.

But the onslaught of war changes everything and soon the de Witts find themselves sidelined and in danger of losing everything they hold dear. As Celia struggles to make sense of the changing world around her, she lies about her age to join the war effort and finds herself embroiled in a complex plot that puts her and those she loves in danger.
