A letter, two lovers, a terrible lie. In war, truth is only the first casualty. Inspires the kind of devotion among its readers not seen since David Nicholls One Day The Times While Riley Purefoy and Peter Locke fight for their country, their survival and their sanity in the trenches of Flanders, Nadine Waveney, Julia Locke and Rose Locke do what they can at home. Beautiful, obsessive Julia and gentle, eccentric Peter are married: each day Julia goes through rituals to prepare for her beloved husbands return. Nadine and Riley, only eighteen when the war starts, and with problems of their own already, want above all to make promises - but how can they when the future is not in their hands? And Rose? Well, what did happen to the traditionally brought-up women who lost all hope of marriage, because all the young men were dead? Moving between Ypres, London and Paris, My Dear I Wanted to Tell You is a deeply affecting, moving and brilliant novel of love and war, and how they affect those left behind as well as those who fight.

Every once in a while comes a novel that generates its own success, simply by being loved. The Times Birdsong for the new millennium Tatler Powerful, sometimes shocking, boldly conceived, it fixes on wars lingering trauma to show how people adapt or not and is irradiated by anger and pity The Sunday Times [A] tender, elegiac novel. Others have been here before, of course, from Sebastian Faulks to Pat Barker, but Young belongs in their company Mail on Sunday Unmissable in crisp poignant prose Young explores what war really means in terms of mental anguish, while cleverly commenting on class and sex Marie Claire Weaving heartbreakingly painful irony, heroic sacrifice, human weakness, vanity, tragedy and the purest of loves, youll be left sobbing and grasping onto any hope that all is not lost amid the poppies, the guns and the hospital beds Easy Living A memorable and unusual novel which explores new ground in the literature of the Great War Linda Grant This novel is a triumph Elizabeth Jane Howard Young has a historians eye for the private details of war, and a warmth to her prose that makes her small cast emotionally engaging Through Riley, however, the novel achieves an appeal to compassion and courage that deserves to reach a wide audience Hindsight tells us peace will not be final, but Young conveys, beautifully, the universal wish that it might be Independent Beautifully realised Daily Express Masterfully conveyed Woman & Home Full of drama, betrayal and addictive real-life detail Red This is a moving and powerful novel, one youre not likely to forget Choice A book that should be read by everyone New Books
