By Patricia Anthony



“A harrowing and beautiful novel, demonstrating — again — that Patricia Anthony is one of our great writers.” — Publishers Weekly
In this gritty look at World War I’s trench warfare, a young American sharpshooter ventures into no man’s land each night to be ready by daybreak for the grim business of slaying record numbers of enemies. But Travis Lee Stanhope, a Texan serving with an English unit, is haunted by ghosts of the men he’s killed as well as those of his fallen comrades. As he hovers on the brink of a transcendent experience, Travis gradually realizes that although he is surrounded by death, his true mission is related to life.
