The Care and Management of Lies
"An engaging picture of the human spirit in a distant time of war, World War I, from the battlefields to the home front in an English village."
—Herman Wouk, author of The Winds of War and War and Remembrance
"A haunting evocation, from an unusual angle, of the war that cast such a shadow over the whole 20th century. Jacqueline Winspear knows her native England, and the human heart, very well indeed."
—Adam Hochschild, author of To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918
"In The Care and Management of Lies the wonderfully talented Winspear writes irresistibly about the First World War, both in the trenches of France and the fields of England. Her richly complex characters walk right off the page and into our imaginations, as we fight with them, farm with them, cook with them. I devoured this dazzling novel."
—Margot Livesey, author of The Flight of Gemma Hardy
