PASSCHENDAELE

War brought them together. Only love could tear them apart.

They called it the war to end all wars, but so devastating was the fighting that it threatened to end all worlds. Named after the tragic battle in World War One, Passchendaele is a romantic epic that threads together the stories of three couples; American, Irish and English, weaving their destinies through one of history’s most tumultuous eras.

In a time of tradition and privilege, British aristocrats and American heiresses are not expected to live alongside workingclass Irish orphans. But the Great War is bringing great change, and the old order is being swept away.
Filled with rage and pity, and loss and redemption, Passchendaele is an epic saga that not only spans two oceans, three continents and six years; it shows how the escalating passions of hate, vengeance, and despair can be conquered by the redemptive powers of love, salvation, and hope.
