The Winter Ghosts – Kate Mosse

From the bestselling author of Labyrinth and Sepulchre - a compelling story of ghosts and remembrance.

The Great War took much more than lives.  It robbed a generation of friends, lovers and futures.  In Freddie Watson’s case, it took his beloved brother and, at times, his peace of mind.

In the winter of 1928, still seeking resolution, Freddie is travelling through the French Pyrenees.  During a snowstorm, his car spins off the mountain road.  He stumbles through woods, emerging in a tiny village.  There he meets Fabrissa, a beautiful woman also mourning a lost generation.  Over the course of one night, Fabrissa and Freddie share their stories.  By the time dawn breaks, he will have stumbled across a tragic mystery that goes back through the centuries.

By turns thrilling, poignant and haunting, this is a story of two lives touched by war and transformed by courage.

The Winter Ghosts is a gorgeous illustrated novel inspired by The Cave, Kate Mosse’s short story written for the Quick Reads Initiative for adult emergent readers.
