shortDescription
Read the novel New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network Kate Quinn called "easily one of the best novels I have read all year!" A critically acclaimed, multi-layered romance set in the perilous days of World Wars I and II, where gods hold the fates—and the hearts—of four mortals in their hands.
They are Hazel, James, Aubrey, and Colette. A classical pianist from London, a British would-be architect-turned-soldier, a Harlem-born ragtime genius in the U.S. Army, and a Belgian orphan with a gorgeous voice and a devastating past. Their story, as told by goddess Aphrodite, who must spin the tale or face judgment on Mount Olympus, is filled with hope and heartbreak, prejudice and passion, and reveals that, though War is a formidable force, it's no match for the transcendent power of Love.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: An extraordinary ensemble of seven talented narrators enacts several interwoven stories. The audio begins in 1945 as Greek gods argue about the nature of love. Jayne Entwistle's Aphrodite is mature and certain as she frames the story of humans who fall in love during WWI. These characters are Hazel and James, who meet just before James ships out. Fiona Hardingham expresses Hazel's innocence in love, and later, in war. But most poignant is Steve West's portrayal of James, whose battle fatigue and guilt over killing soldiers allow listeners to understand the horrors and trauma of war. All that said, while the narrators' depictions are spot-on and help listeners appreciate the author's lyrical writing, the complexity of this story may be better appreciated on the page.
