Belgium, 1917. With no memory of the past twenty-four hours, Michel wakes to find himself trapped behind enemy lines. The whole area is set to be blown sky high by the British—dozens of mines filled with explosives honeycomb the land. But Michel is going nowhere. He can’t talk. Can’t move. Can’t fight. Axelle, a Belgian woman who takes pity, nurses Michel to health. But she has her own problems. A German war hero wants her womanly virtue. An unhinged neighbor wants her land. And Axe? All she wants is justice for her dead parents, slaughtered as they slept. Scores to settle. Wars to fight. There will be a reckoning.
