Spotlight + Giveaway: Tides of Honour by Genevieve Graham

Last year I had the pleasure of reading Tides of Honour by Canadian author Genevieve Graham. It was a beautiful, heartbreaking book that I still think about often. One of the things I loved about it was that it's actually set in Canada, which is unfortunately rare, even from Canadian authors. I don't remember learning about the Halifax Explosion in school (talk about an oversight!), so I was horrified and fascinated reading about it in this book. 

A novel of love, loss, and honour amidst the horrors of war and its aftermath.

It’s 1916, and the last thing Nova Scotian soldier Danny Baker expects to find in war-torn France is the love of his life. Audrey Poulin is alone in the world, and struggling to survive the war in the French countryside. When Audrey and Danny meet and fall in love, it seems like the best version of fate.

But love is only the beginning, as Danny loses a leg in the Battle of the Somme, and returns home to Halifax with Audrey, only to discover that he’s unable to leave the war behind. Danny and Audrey struggle with their new life together, and must face not only their own internal demons, but a catastrophe that will soon rip apart everything they think they know about themselves and each other.
