DescriptionThe 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. Unable to cope with his grief, Freddie has spent much of the time since in a sanatorium. In the winter of 1928, still seeking resolution, Freddie is travelling through the French Pyrenees - another region that has seen too much bloodshed over the years. During a snowstorm, his car spins off the mountain road. Shaken, he stumbles into the woods, emerging by a tiny village. There he meets Fabrissa, a beautiful local woman, also mourning a lost generation. Over the course of one night, Fabrissa and Freddie share their stories of remembrance and loss. 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.

Reviews for The Winter Ghosts
The story advances very slowly, but in a wonderful way.
I fell in love with this book... but I can't really explain why. The only word that comes to my mind when trying to describe it is 'haunting'.
Do yourself a favor and buy this book, and read it alone in a quiet place. by Florencia
I JUST LOVE THE BOOK A WONDERFALLY READ
AND HAUNTING TALE OF LOSS A HEARTBREAKING READ
BY A FANTASTIC READ WELL DO 10 OUT OF 10 by angela
I was very disappointed by this book. The whole book seemed like a slow moving first chapter - and then it was over. It showed none of the detailed research and character development of Labyrinth. Really disappointing. I expected a cleverly researched and intricately woven plot as I have seen in other books by this author. I'd recommend giving this one a miss. by AD
