When his beloved brother-in-law goes missing in the “Great War”, Nova Scotian navigator Angus MacGrath ignores his pacifist upbringing and joins the army as a cartographer in order to search for him. Instead, he finds himself thrown straight into battle and must find a way to persevere. Back home, tensions lead to hostility as Angus’s son, Simon Peter, travels the dangerous streets of their fishing village.

In the BookTalkers selection this month (which is the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI) novelist P. S. Duffy explores the circles of hell opened up by war, both on the actual war front and at home.
