I can't believe how quickly the time has passed since Sarah and Judith invited me to be part of RTG. There have been so many interesting and memorable posts.
My 3 novel collection, The Loves We Left Behind, published by Books We Love, also commemorates a birthday, the centenary of World War 1. Unlike the happy anniversary celebrations for RTG, the centenary of World War 1, perhaps the costliest war in history with regards to casualties, was a tragic event, but nevertheless, it deserves to be remembered. The men who sacrificed their lives and health, the army nurses who cared for the wounded and the brave women who waited at home for their menfolk to return. They deserve to be remembered, revered even.
BLURB FOR THE LOVES WE LEFT BEHIND:

A hundred years ago, from the far flung corners of theAllison’s War:
