Somewhere in France, coming from William Morrow Books in January 2014, is an atmospheric, beautifully drawn debut novel of love, hope, and danger set during the First World War.

Lady Elizabeth Neville-Ashford wants to travel the world, pursue a career, and marry for love. But in 1914, the stifling restrictions of aristocratic British society and her mother’s rigid expectations forbid Lilly from following her heart. When war breaks out, the spirited young woman seizes her chance for independence. Defying her parents, she moves to London and eventually becomes an ambulance driver in the newly formed Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps—an exciting and treacherous job that takes her to a field hospital in France. There she is reunited with Robert Fraser, her brother’s best friend, a man she has loved from afar for years. Yet how can love survive, let alone flower, amid the horrors of the Great War? And how can either one of them hope to conquer their private nightmares in a time of catastrophe, suffering, and unfathomable loss?

Included in the giveaway is an ARC for Somewhere in France, as well as a set of Paris-themed postcards from The Paris Print Shop.

  86. Katherine
    Aug 16, 2013 @ 00:07:17

    Both books sound quite good.

    I have to ask: was it deliberate to pair two books that are opposite in every way? I’d be hard-pressed to come up with another so different.
    Hmmm. Maybe a Georgette Heyer and Lorelei James?
