Read full description of the books Those Measureless Fields:Captain Laurence Greene was gassed at Ypres. He takes ten years to die. With her fiance, Joseph, lost in France, Effie Shaw spends a decade as Laurence s cook. They share a roof, a sweet tooth and a taste for pastoral romances. Propriety, however, prescribes that their sharing end there. It is a surprise to Effie, then, when Laurence bequeaths her a railway ticket, the deeds to a tea shop and a declaration of his unspoken love.The terms of Laurence s will require that Effie must travel to Ypres and visit her fiance s grave. As Laurence had always told it, Joseph met his end with a show of heroics. But, in carrying out Laurence s last requests, and following his wartime diary, Effie is to discover something shocking. Joseph wasn t quite as heroic as she was told and he also isn t quite so dead.The stories of three soldiers connect through Laurence s diary. As Effie travels on, from Passchendaele to Paris, these men become linked together once again. A decade on from the Armistice, is the war really over at all? Effie is about to realize just how many echoes - and untidy ends - 1918 has left behind."
